Do you all starch the loops to make them curvy afterwards? Please please tell me!! Maybe that is what I need to do more of, starch?

I jsut don't see how they can stay curvy without a stiffener of some kind.
I haven't used templates before so I'm not 100% positive, but I think the ladies are saying to remove the ribbon from the template, seperate the loops out and then sew. The exaggerated curvy part is achieved with the fold, not starching. Starching just helps it stay curvy.
