Let me start off by saying there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THE PATTERN OR TUTORIAL. There is however a problem with the material's I chose to make the dress straps with and that is why I struggled as much as I did. USE A HIGH QUALITY Ribbon not the dollar store kind I used that frayed and when I tried to sew it ripped right off the dress!!!
The dress was salvageable in the end but I will have to remake it if I ever wanted to make one for someones dolls. I would have liked purple straps but the yellow worked out okay.
I still love this book and am thrilled with the results even with the set back of my operator error. I am looking forward to ribbon shopping soon so I can try this dress again!
