Default HELP! Customer wants lilac boutique bow on headband

Ok crafty ladies! I need HELP!! I have a customer that has a 4 month old baby girl. She is entering her in a pageant THIS Saturday. She wants a light orchid (lavender) boutique bow on a white or lilac headband. I don't think I will be able to find a lilac band before Saturday, but can probably get white. I am not sure how large to make this boutique bow for a 4month old? The babies dress is very frilly, white with some lilac or light orchid coloring. Has anyone made one and do you have pictures? My girls are grown and this is new to me! HELP!!!

If it is for a pageant, I would do about 2 - 2 1/2" inches out of 7/8 ribbon. I would do it with sheer ribbon. FOr all of Adri's Sunday's Best pagenats, we wear sheer bows. Satin would work too. IF the dress is really frilly, I wouldn't use grosgrain, JMO. HTH!!!

I would do 2.5-3" boutique bow. Check walmart in the hair section and you might find the knit headbands in pastels. They have them here in AZ. hth
