Sometimes the right type overlock seam can give enough hold, other times I use plain bias biding or fish bone weave ribbon.

Another one who saves those ribbon hanging loops, and uses them sometimes for shoulder seams  0_0

But have you noticed how many people wear tops with them hanging out of the arm holes?  I so want to tell them they can (and indeed should) cut them off!

You've shamed me as I just looked down to find I was exhibiting one such loop and have now cut it out.

At Christmas one of the "celebrity" University Challenge competitors had a ribbon looping across the top of her shoulder - I couldn`t concentrate on anything else
