Vintage Details: Ribbon Lattice


This would be a really cool detail to add to a simple skirt or dress, for someone with lots of patience. This beautiful vintage inspiration comes to us courtesy of one of my favorite online vintage dealers, Lauren of Dear Golden.

Patience, aye; terrific tools, even better. I vote for some KK 2000, a temporary spray-on glue and a disappearing ink pen. Draw on the grid, spray, tack on the ribbons, adjust to make sure they’re just right. Sew. Done!


What a lovely dress and the detail is very interesting.


Just gorgeous. I second Mary Beth’s suggestion of disappearing ink pen and spray on glue. It looks as though the ribbon was originally a match to the skirt, but I think it would look wonderful in a contrast as well. I may just have to try this.
