The world's finest woven edge Petersham ribbon. 100% Rayon, washable, dry cleanable, colorfast, less than 10% shrinkage. Petersham is often confused with grosgrain ribbon but the important difference is that the Petersham has a scalloped edge which allows you to shape the ribbon. See Sandra Betzina's book Power Sewing Step-by-Step for a neat, easy to make waistband facing using Petersham.

Be sure to preshrink where necessary before use with steam or by spritzing with water and pressing with iron set for rayon.

    The ribbon was advertised as perfect for wedding apparel. I purchased this ribbon for a flower girl dress I'm making for my 3 yr old granddaughter. I am hoping it will go well with natural Swiss cotton Nelona as a sash. The narrower ribbon will be used thru beading insertion applied to the bodice. Cannot comment on construction as I haven't started yet.

    Petersham is not found locally. Fortunately The Sewing Place had just what I required and sent my order so quickly. You saved the day! I used it to make a waist stay for a strapless wedding gown. My niece danced the night away feeling secure that her dress remained in place without tugging and struggling at her bodice. Many thank yous to The Sewing Place.

    For me the color was spot on and looked very close to the photo on the website. It's exactly what I need to make a Halloween costume for my niece. Thanks!
