Grosgrain Ribbon Basics

Grosgrain, pronounced "groh-greyn"

  • Has prominent transverse ribs and is quite strong

  • Normally has a dull appearance with little luster

  • May be substituted for twill tape for garment internal reinforcements

  • Often used within a garment for facings and waistbands

I used 1-inch wide grosgrain ribbon for waistband support in my wedding dress.
