celb Posted April 13, 2012 Share Posted April 13, 2012 I am unable to sew on ribbons to my perfectionist DD's satisfaction !.Whenever she comes down to flat from pointe the ribbons gape slightly at the front no matter how tight she ties the ribbons.I have tried sewing the ribbon at an angle forward from the crease in the folded over heel and have also tried straight up. Any suggestions.The ribbon I am using is thicker than the usual ribbon but my DD says the same happened with the finer EYB ribbon.Is it the ribbon , is it her feet ( she has high arched hypermobile small feet) , should I move the ribbon further forward? further back? .I did suggest to DD that she might like to sew them on herself - but then her eyes filled with tears .Any suggestions gratefully received.
