How to Make Fabric Roses – Part 1

Cut a Piece of Fabric

 

Cut a piece of fabric that is about 6 inches long and 3 inches wide.

 

I started with thin polyester lining.

 

02 If the first fabric is soft Cut a piece of interfacing or tricot a second piece that will fill the flower and stiffen it without making it thick 

Then I used nylon tricot to form the inner layer.

Nylon tricot is soft but thick (compared to the lining). It adds excellent fill material without adding bulk.

Securely Stitch In Place

Securely Stitch In Place

Securely stitch the shoulder detail in place on the inside of the garment.

I use two rows of hand stitching:

  • The first is a very small blind stitch on the top edge of the garment.
  • The second is a pick stitch or a whip stitch to secure the raw edge.

This Vera Wang Gown originally had a halter style bow made of tulle.

The bride wanted the ties turned into a capelet style shoulder drape.

I pinned the alteration exactly as the bride wanted and cut off the extra tulle.
