    I just got some fabric to make some - there are patterns on line but the patterns were on sale for $1.99 so I got one because it had some extra pieces, like pants and crop top. If anyone has any hints I'd appreciate them.

    Stitchnripper: Do you use bias tape for the arm holes and shoulder ties?

    I don't plan on it so far. I think I'm just going to turn them under and meet at underarms. That's how they showed it online. I've made a doll dress this way. I want to be able to run the ribbon through the front and back casing and draw up and adjust and tie on the shoulders.

    I printed a pattern for these dresses yesterday. Go to fabshophop.com and there is a great pattern there under Make a Pretty Pillowcase dress. I'm dying to try making one.
