Default I'm stumped! need m2m bow for red velvet & white fur dress but..

I only have 1 1/2 inch red velvet ribbon. When I make a standard loopy boutique bow with the velvet it wont pinch up right in the center (too thick) and is droopy in the loops. I'm trying to come up with a way to use what I have, but could use some ideas. Can you think of any other way to use the wide red velvet other than to make the "bow" with? I'm trying to keep it kinda simple, but not plain.

The dress is red velvet with white fur trim at neck, cuffs, and hem. Embroidered white snowflakes on the bodice.

I have 1.5" red velvet, assorted widths white ribbon, white marabou, and snowflake "button" centers in variety of sizes & STILL can't make this bow work!

The only thing I was thinking was adding marabou in the center. But it looks like you might have tried that already. Sorry I am no help. I struggle with coming up with combinations myself.

Can you layer the velvet with red grosgrain before folding it? Just on the inside (underside of the velvet) so it's still a single bow but the grosgrain gives it some stability.
