Default Re: Bottom Bow...or NO Bottom Bow...that is the question??

I use sta-flo starch mixed about 60/40 (60% starch and 40% water) in a spray bottle. Sta-Flo is with the starch in the laundry isle but is in a blue jug and inexpensive. I sometimes also use the regular spray starch. You don't have to iron it, it'll dry. Just don't over starch it or it'll flake.

See....I use a base bow sometimes and when I do, I use a basic bow instead of a twisted. I just like the looks better and the spikes don't curve as some of the previous posters have discussed.

I generally use a pinwheel as the bottom bow on my stacked bows. It lays flat but still gives it a nice base
