4. Sew the two pieces together using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
7. Sew together using a 1/4″ seam allowance. I alternate between using a zig zag stitch and folding my material to prevent it from fraying. No need for a serger!
10. Begin sewing at the seam of the tube and a little over 1/4″ from the top of the tube. Sew all the way around the tube of fabric in a straight line. Use a regular straight stitch. Sew from the right side of the fabric so that the elastic thread is on the wrong side of the fabric

13. Now you will need four pieces of coordinating fabric to create shoulder ties. Having the dress tie at the top makes it super adjustable!
14. Right sides facing, sew the fabric together lengthwise using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Sew one end of each strap closed as well. Use a Quick Turn kit to quickly invert each strap so that right sides are out.
15. Iron the straps flat.
