Much Better

I'm glad I tried a practice pillowcase dress first, because there were some things that I wanted to change. The ribbon shoulder straps needed to be wider. The main fabric needed to be longer and I needed to do something about the arm holes.

My next "try" turned out much better.

The armhole solution was to create bias tape out of the sashing fabric. Much cuter and much "cleaner."
I love this version of the dress with one long ribbon creating the shoulder straps.
