Bridal Sash Restyle – “Tie” Sash into a “Hook&Eye” Closure

beforeafter sash pinterest

Greetings Everyone!  I recently took on a project I thought would benefit many DIY Brides out there.  Maybe you found a Bridal Sash with a beautiful design on the front but the tied bow on the back was not alluring to you.  Well, there is a solution — RESTYLE it!  You can transform  the “tied” Bridal sash into a hook & eye closure.  I had the opportunity to do this for a Bridal Guest.

Since I did not meet the Bride in person, the sash was delivered to me through a mutual friend.  I received her waist measurement written on the tissue paper which wrapped her beautiful rhinestone sash.  Honestly, I get a little nervous when I do not take the measurements myself.  But because this was a special scenario, I moved forward with lots of prayer for that peace I needed:)

So here is the tutorial.  Hope it will help a Bride out there.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

You can also view one of my early sash tutorial below.  For the EVA sash, it was the reverse.  Instead of using the hook & eye, the ribbon was cut long enough to tie into a bow.

DIY Tutorial : Custom Rhinestone Bridal Sash

I completed the custom Rhinestone Bridal Sash for a dashing Bride-to-be.  Here is the tutorial…

Rhinestone Bridal Sash Tutorial

1. Measure carefully how much Rhinestone trim you will need (rhinestone trims can get pricey)

2. Gather the materials: Rhinestone trim, double sided satin ribbon, invisible thread/needle, scissors

3.  Once the trims are layed out, leave about 1 inch of ribbon on each end of the sash (You will be folding it under and stitch for a clean finish before sewing on the hook/eye)

4. Start hand sewing each row of trim onto the ribbon.

5. For this project, I used a bra hook & eye to connect the end of the sash.  I trimmed it down to one row of hook&eye.

6. Sew the hook to one end of the sash and the eye to the other end.

In the last 2 photos, you can see how the hook & eye are lined up along the edge of the sash.  The alignment will prevent it from forming a gap when connected.

You can also check out one of my early sash tutorial below.  For the EVA sash, instead of using the hook & eye, the ribbon was cut long enough to tie into a bow.
