Does anyone have any tips on making a fondant bow look more fabric-like? Less rigid and more flowing?

I have seen some bows that look so full almost luxurious but mine need help. I appreciate any ideas and hope my question makes sense.

there is a way to do it...

I do mine different... but just make sure to roll the fondant really thin/ use luster dust to make it look like satin icon_smile.gif
