Wow great replica! You are wicked talented! Your dress is awesome!

FYI: I use something called STIFFY (from Hobby Lobby)to make hairbows that are ultra firm. I am more than sure it would well on fabric bows as well. Just do a test one first, the first time I used it my bows were so stiff they could stand up on their own Cheesy.

The dress looks great!  If you are worried about the bow, you could open that part of the strap and put iron-on interfacing in, then close the seam up by hand.  It would add a little stiffness without much bulk, and you would not have to keep ironing it.

Just wanted to say you did a great job on this dress, which, BTW, looks way better on you than the off-the-rack version looks on the model. Truly!
