I am soclose to being done with Kjrsten's dress. All I need is to sew on two more snap closures on the center front opening.
I was originally going to sew roses all around the neck and down center front, but when Anna told me it looked like a clown dress, I decided to make a major edit, and it has resulted in only three roses on the neckline and a ruffle down the opening. I might put one more rose on the dress's right side that will sit on the shoulder... we shall see.
The ruffle down center front, or next to center front, really, is just bias strips sewn to the flap. Simple.
