Our resident sewing expert gives a lesson in how to sew fabric roses for wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses.
For flowers 3/4” or 2cm in diameter
What do you need?
Strips of fabric or ribbon 10”/25cm long, 1.5”/4cm wide
Needle and thread

Steps:
1. Fold fabric lengthwise along the center line so right sides are together. Sew along the open edge, 2/8” (0.5cm) from edge.
2. Turn the tube right-side out using a safety pin to thread it. Press so that sewn edge runs along the center of one side (do not press along the sewn edge)
3. Fold in one end and start winding fabric around it. Twist the fabric as you go – it is the twists that create the look of petals. Sew bottom edges of petals to hold them in place.

Your flowers are ready to attach to your dress!
