Preparation:

*Pin the decorative ribbon over the lace so that the bottom edge of the decorative ribbon meets up with top edge of the ruffle. If using a wide ruffled ribbon, you’ll pin the decorative ribbon in the center of the wide ruffled ribbon.

*Sew the decorative ribbon to the lace or ruffled ribbon with two long, straight lines – along the top edge and bottom edge of the decorative ribbon. Trim the ends.
