Thanks ~ MK
if the ribbon is polyester is shouldn't shrink, atleast I've never had it happen. When I've used trim that I feared would shrink I put it in a sink of hot water and then hang it to dry on my shower curtain rod.
You do have to be careful not to let the tshirt stretch as you sew on the ribbon. As the other posters have advised, wonder under or heat n bond is very helpful. I'm going to look into that disolvable stuff, sounds promising!
