Default Total Bow Block

UGH!!!! I have a special request to make 3 bows, 2 of those a set. I have the set figured out, but I don't have any ideas for the one. She wants it big, navy with a little bit of ivory, and fancy. It is to match her daughter's dress for a wedding. I have ribbon and pretty embellishments but I cannot figure anything out! I have a picture of the dress, but it doesn't look navy in the pic. It looks more of a royal blue. I'm afraid that my navy isn't going to match her dress at all.


So, what would you do for a special pretty bow?

first I would ask her if the dress is a TRUE NAVY or more royal. Then, what about using the navy with the ivory on top of it, not two bows but one bow made while holding the two ribbons together.

I have a picture and the top is a true navy velvet and the bottom is more of a royal. *sigh*

but what kind of bow should I do?? Everything I'm making looks cutsy and not elegant like I'd hoped. I'm going to try once more and then pull my hair out. LOL!

How about something like this:


in navy but with an ivory pearl center or some ivory organza ribbon?

Which bow is that? It's beautiful.


I don't have any organza. Of course, Hobby Lobby is closed today. I went to Walmart earlier and got some pretty nice ribbon in satin (ivory and navy) and I have grosgrain in navy.


aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhh. Sorry, had to get that out. Usually I have no issues!

I got it off of google images but to make that bow I would do two tuxedo bows and tie them together. Then I would do the same with the organza(if you are making it with organza) I wonder if you could find navy velvet ribbon just to make it match even more.
