Taylor is the little cutie on the right, and I'll show today how I made her dress. Below I had a yard of fabric that I cut at a slight angle on both side and then matched the right sides and sewed them together. Below you can see what it looks like when I turned it back right sides out. I have a surger so I surged the top and bottom to leave a finished edge.
Next I turned over the top about an inch and then sewed all the way around and left a 1 inch opening and inserted elastic with a safety pin on one end. I used the pin so that I could pull it along through to the other side. Once I had the desired stretch I closed the opening. Then I sewed some straps using some blue velvet ribbon. I also hemmed up the bottom edge.
|Next, I took some black lace and sewed the edge of it to the wrong side of the elastic edge that I just made.|
