I store ribbons in glass jars with domed lids to make finding the right one easier.
These pictured are my favourites. Some were given by friends, some were inherited, most of them I bought at some time or another. 
I've got them out re: dressing dolls.  Do you remember making clothes for your dolls when you were little? A polo knit jersey for Barbie stands out in my mind. And a little friend showing me how to cut pants from fabric which didn't look like pants at all because the seam was in the middle. Wish I could do that confidently now!
Having consulted Vogue, current trends to choose from seem to be layers of white some of them transparent (broderie anglaise?); shiny plastic/neon/pastels/black. Pass me the broderie anglaise please.
