What to Do

1. Measure from waist to hem of dress. Fold netting lengthwise to this measurement plus a 1-inch seam allowance. Cut off excess netting and put aside. By hand or on a sewing machine, use a 1-inch running stitch to sew both layers of netting 1⁄2 inch from the cut edge. Hold one end of the thread and gather the netting by pulling the other end until the netting is the size of the dress waist. Sew the netting to the waist seam.

2. Cover the raw edges of the netting by sewing or gluing on the ribbon and other trim.

3. Sew or glue ­ribbon and trim to the bodice.

4. Secure a tiara to the hair with a piece of elastic tied to either end.
