The overskirt is now attached to the belt, along with the sash ends and the big bow. Next up, basting it to the bodice and adding closures. Then I'll be done!

A question: How does one keep silk knots knotted? I unraveled the ends of my sash to make a fringe and have it knotted, but the slippery silk keeps wanting to become un-knotted. I am considering fray-checking the knots. Any other suggestions?

A small hand stitch in each knot? Tedious, but probably effective.

Once knotted, add clear nailpolish and let it dry. The clear nailpolish lasts for about 15 washes on the ribbons I've used in the past. Probably not a huge consideration with silk but at least it will last for quite a while.
