Crystal Clever Floral Sash

Ribbon flowers are so easy to make and this design, which I made to showcase the Swarovski 2018 spring/ summer innovations in London earlier this year shows just what an impact you can create. These exquisite pear shaped fancy stones and little round stones are from the new Crystal Shiny LacquerPRO range – the colour names themselves are so inspiring! They just shout SUMMER  – Crystal Azure Blue, Crystal Peony Pink, Crystal Summer Blue, Crystal Mint Green, and Crystal Light Coral. Don’t you want to dive right in?

Is there a better way to add the wow factor to a simple dress? With so many exquisite ribbons around you can match the colours to your dress or go for a contrast making sure that one of the ribbons matches the dress exactly.

The design is featured in issue 25 of Dressmaker magazine with step-by-step instructions and you’ll be able to download diagrams for the flowers from 27th July 2017.
