T»y Alicia Hart NEA Staff Writer There's as much dress-up appeal >er inch In velvet ribbon as any- ulng that you can use this spring > glamorize a blouse. Since fashion designers make much of the velvet touch, why don't you? Use it, as they do. to add rich accent to the ruffly cuffs and collar of a blouse. A narrow length of velvet ribbon lied around each cuff »nd at the opening of the collar will do the trick. Velvet ribbon can also b« laced through the open- Ings of eyelet embroidery trimming which ruffles the neckline of an off-shouldered blouse. Velvet ribbon also makes a pretty necklace from which to hang an old-fashioned brooch, locket or medallion.

You can attach these bring gimmicks to the flyaway end* of bow-tied velvet ribbon used to glamorize the neckline or collar of a blouse.
