  • slipping shawl

    Hi Ladies,

    I am in the process of making my 7 year old daughter her fancy shawl regalia. I made her shawl out of a slippery satin material. The problem is that it is slipping all over her shoulders and she can't keep it still. She keeps pulling up the shawl and it ends up half way up her back. I am thinking of velro under the yoke and across her shoulders. Also I thought I would sew a wrist tie to the inside of the shawl so she dosn't have to worry about it slipping from her hands. Anyone have the same problem? What was your solution?

        Ive seen some kids with buttons or snaps either on the dress or the cape... it seem to work pretty well and you dont have to try to pin them when they are trying to run around.

          same 13 yr old still likes elastic loops although she hasn't used safty pins on the shoulders for a while

            My best friend is getting married soon, and as her brides maid I offered to make her a shawl and one for myself. I have only been to a few dances, because my boyfriend used to be a fancy dancer himself. I have a basic idea of how to measure, make the shawl, and fringe, but no...
