Default What would YOU make to go with it?

I am having horrible bow block. My DD needs either one big bow or two small bows to match her dress. She doesn't have much hair, so I usually do two tiny pig tails or one "whale spout" with her hair.


Here is her dress. Help please!

I would either do two mini bows in red with black velvet middles (meaning the strip of ribbon in the centre), or I'd do red and black mini korkers, with just 3 or 4 pieces of ribbon in each. I'd then do a red felt flower applique centre. Either of those, or a black FOE headband with either a bow or red felt flower. If all else fails, type in your colours on etsy and get some more ideas! Cute outfit BTW :-)

My daughter has a similar print (although on a taffeta). Here's a pic of her in her dress and one of her bow if that helps.

I would do black mini bows with either red korkers in the middle or a red flower.
I have one black and red bow in my store, if you want to look for an idea.

I have an almost exact matching plaid ribbon. I have a layered black velvet bow with the plaid on top. I can sell you some of the ribbon if needed.

I completely agree, I like simple colors to compliment.

Beautiful! I love the slide, gives it just the right "pop", I think.
