I just loved the look of this oversized bow with the Neapolitan dress! As you might have guessed by now, I love oversized details. The bigger the better. It totally worked for the distressed birthday girl look that we were going for. What is fashion without drama? Nothing!
So anyways, here’s how to make this big bow…I originally made it to be the front feature of a dress. But the dress didn’t work so I ripped it off and glued a hair clip to it.
First, cut out your pieces, two rectangles and fuse interfacing to them. Then fold your large piece in half, hot dog style, and sew it up. You’ll want to leave a 5″ or wider opening in the middle of the piece. Use a 1/2″ seam allowance.
For the middle section, take your small rectangle and fold it in thirds. Press.
To assemble the bow, lay your long stripe out as shown below. Then cinch it where indicated and wrap the middle piece around.
Pin the ends together and stitch close to the bow.
Cut off the extra.
And you’re done! You can glue a hair clip on the back, or attach them to a headband or shirt!
