I haven’t thought too much about it yet, but I think I might have the seamstress just tack it in place with a couple small stitches, just to make sure it stays put.

I had mine sewn on.  I didn’t like having the ribbon bow in the back so she cut off the excess ribbon and sewed it on to make it look like part of the dress.

I’m not, because I have two different sashes to wear. But even if I only had one, I probably wouldnt.

I’m having my sash swen on, so that the excess can be removed.

Sewn on. Some dresses can hold the look of the bow or tie in the back and it adds to it, mine does not look good with it and I think at times it looks sloppy. Also I am using the extra material around my bouquets or flower girl dress to tie everything together

I’m sewing my sash in for about the same reason as Meowkers – I have buttons on the back of the dress so they would get covered by the sash otherwise.  For those that had the sash sewn in, do you remember the material the sash was made from? My seamstress didn’t like the ribbon I purchased and I can’t figure out what to buy! Thanks!
