Pattern: Ellinor from BurdaStyle
This pattern is also included in Burda WOF magazine 04/2003
Fabric: Cotton with silver metallic thread JoAnns
Woven Ribbon: with gold metallic thread JoAnns
This ribbon was kind of stiff and hard to curve.
I’ve very pleased with this pattern.
Here’s how to apply the woven ribbon to the neckline:
Tip: to create an invisible seam for the application, I used a metallic thread with a special machine needle that has a large eye.
Here’s how to create the corners in the woven ribbon:
1. fold the ribbon right sides facing, sew a dart at a 45 degree angle. I ususally pin it first to see which direction it will lay when unfolded. To make it unfold the other way, simply sew the dart the reverse side, with the V tip pointing the opposite direction.
