    might seem a silly question to some....

    like i know how to tie a 'shoelace' bow, but they end up sitting wonky when i tie ribbon around my waist. and then i end up having the safety pin it to death to make it sit right, which can be very frustrating and difficult to untie when oh-so-slighty intoxicated...

    i want to know how to tie a proper bow, with both sides symmetrical and pointing the same way!

    help me, people!!!

    They arent as hard as people make it out to be but a bit fiddly on the first couple of go's. I used to work in formalwear in john lewis so i learnt there, just kept on tying for a particular stand lol

    Nah its pretty much the same, just make sure your knot centres on the thinner part of the tie
