Default ribbon shirts

for those that have made the ribbon shirts---do you wash the shirts before adding the ribbon? is there anyway to make the bow detachable? i made some for maddie 2 years ago and one of the shirts--the bow was awful looking after the first wash. any ideas on how to make it detachable? i was thinking about putting it on a french barrette and making a loop on the ribbon on the shirt--that way after the girl has grown out of the shirt--she has a bow still. or do you think that is too dangerous to have that metal piece on the shirt? should i just attach the bow w/ a safety pin like they do on the bailey boys outfits?

opinions please!!

prewash and dry the shirt, especially if it is 100% cotton. If you don't, it will get puckery when it is washed.

Next time I make one I'll make the bow detachable.

I attach mine to a safety pin. You could also sew a snap button on the shirt and unsnap the ribbon before washing.

My plan is to use a pin backing. I have to look at them closer though. I'm not sure how easily they could "accidently" open, don't want anyone to get stabbed wearing the shirt.




i also thouhgt about putting it on a button and making a button hole in the shirt, but I'm not sure how easily it could get lost. Besides, I hate making buttonholes LOL!

I love the idea of a snap. Are snaps hard to attach.

Not at all. Get the ones with holes around the disc of the socket side and the ball side and then just stitch them to bow and shirt.

I usually use pin backs, but I've thought of using snaps.

It would work really well to have a larger 'main' snap in the middle and then a couple on the sides as 'back-up' so the bow has less of a chance of getting lost or anything.
