Edit: Due to the populatiy of these tutorials (who would have guessed?) I've changed the original format of them to a nice, shinier model~! Hope you enjoy the new interface!

Once again, I end up submitting really basic things! Oh, the life of me is going, going, goooone! DX

I've never really thought much about making bows. They're just something that, to me, comes really quickly and easily and it's all of a twenty-minute job. But I was commissioned to make a bow for the back of an Ariel dress, and really, who can resist Disney?

I do hope this helps somewhat! It's a lot easier to work on a smaller scale, though...

Thank you so much! This was so helpful while making the bow for Gasai Yuno (school uniform) from Mirai Nikki and I will definitely be using this for any other bows that are needed =D

I did something very similar to this for my Sasami cosplay, except I made the tails a part of her 'obi'-esque waist wrap so I could tie it on and off.  I had to make the pieces separate and removable(so I could take it on and off), so the gather bit is attached with hook-eye closures.  ^__^

You make them so very pretty!  :la:
