1. Emboss all the lengths of ribbon according to the basic instructions for embossed velvet below.
2. Remove the wire from the ribbon.
3. Pin the ribbon to the desired areas of the jacket, such as the cuffs and bottom. Along the bottom edge, it might be easier to attach the trim in several pieces to compensate for buttons or tabs, etc.
4. Pin around the collar so that one edge of the ribbon meets the decorative edge of topstitching on the jacket. Let the other edge go to the inside of the jacket.
5. Sew all the trim on. Tip: Sew as soon after pinning as possible. The pins can leave permanent marks in the velvet.
