Assembling the Dress

  1. Cut your fabric using one of your daughter’s dresses or tops. Here you will cut the armholes out too.
     
  2. Gather the top section of the dress (one side at a time) using a long stitch. Make sure it matches the length desired for the crochet collar. Repeat with the other fabric.

  3. Using right sides together, sew the sides of the fabric and finish the raw edge (or serge it).  Finish the bottom seam for the dress as well.
     
  4. Pin your dress to the crochet collar and begin sewing using a slow speed. Be careful to not go over your pins.
