Default Wedding Bow?????

I have a lady wanting me to make a giant bow out of fabric to go on the back of her wedding dress. It can't be much harder than making hair bows, just waaaaaay larger, right? I guess my question is, how should I do it, and how much should I charge? Anyone had any experience doing this?

mmm...ok - I'll take a stab at this one.... I would basically make a big "tube" of fabric and stitch it down the middle and then flip it right side out. Then I would make a large template, or try using the largest one I have, however, when it is just a crossed over tails down bow, you can just make an X and stitch a couple stiches in the middle to tack it, then gather the middle like you want it and wrap a center on it and tack to teh back.

does she want it in her accent color or her dress color? that's going to be difficult to match fabrics and colors.

She wants it done in her accent color, she brought me everything I need to do it, fabric and all.

prob similar to what my flower girls had... it was in 2 pieces.. the "bow" part and then the tail part and then sewn together.

I wish I could explain it but it was soo cute!

yup . . . but leave an opening in the middle of the tube - this way you can do pointed/rounded/v shaped tails that will look finished and the opening allows you to easily turn it right side out.

if the fabric is limpy (lol - can't think of a better word) . . . sometimes adding some thin batting will give it some shape. it all kinda depends on the bow size & fabric.

g/luck! sounds like a really fun project.
