When in Doubt ... Sash It

About a month ago, Sarah of ClassicBride hosted a give-away on her blog with one of our fabric flower pieces (pictured below). For a chance to win it, Brides-to-be were asked to leave a comment on what they would use it for: a sash, corsage or hairpiece. There were so many comments! We noticed many of Brides wanted fabric flower sashes, not only for the their own gowns, but they also wanted them for their bridesmaids, flower girls, and rehearsal dinner outfits. We immediately started brainstorming new styles. Below are two finished pieces.

This sash has three florets in plum and silver, a long plum grosgrain ribbon tied in the back, velvet leaves and vintage buttons. For a softer look: a large white garden rose, with a pop of red in the center, tied with black ribbon. I love how the sash can make a very simple dress more special, and they can be worn again.

If your bridesmaids are wearing different style dresses, they could each wear one to bring the look together. Thank you to all the Classic Bride readers for sharing their ideas with us!
