Can I just first say thanks to Kestlyn...oh introducer of elastic thread! I've never heard of such a thing so I picked some up without the slightest clue on how to use it. Well 2 internet tutorials later and here I am with the cutest dress/top and matching doll dress (which was a mistake on my part cutting the fabric...can't ever get right the first time lol!) I'm in love :) If I had the whole day to myself I would just sit at home and make these all day long! I used a nicer quality ribbon for the straps which I'm not sure will have the integrity to hold up wash after wash but I think it will be fine as long as its washed on cold....and honestly I think A. will have a closet full of these by the time summer comes so they won't see a whole lot of wear and tear but we'll see....Action shots to come!!
