Default Lining clips for sheer bows

I am making bows from sheer ribbon for the first time to match my girls' Easter dresses. I always fully line the clips when using grosgrain, and want to do the same for this ribbon. However, the only ribbon I have in the right width is grosgrain. Can I use grosgrain to line the clip if the bow is sheer? I tried to look around at other people's bows to get an idea what they do, but I can't see their clips in the pics. What is the standard way to do it? I really don't want to buy more ribbon if I can help it. It is too late to order something, and it might be hard to match up to get what I want locally.

I think it's all a matter of preference. I would stick to what you have as to save money. You aren't going to see it anyway... HTH

I would think the grosgrain would look fine. I usually use satin to line clips when I make sheer bows.

Typically, I line sheer bows with a matching satin, it just seems to go better with the organza. That being said, since they are for your own children, I would go ahead with the grosgrain. Seriously, no one is going to notice at all!

Thanks ladies! I was a little worried about it because I didn't want to take my girls out looking a mess. lol. But, I guess you are all right, probably noone will even notice.

I have always used grosgrain in a matching shade. It seems to hold well and is not noticable at all.

That is what I usually do as well.
