Cut ribbon or crochet 2 straps to:

 12 months- 7.5 inches

Size 2- 8 inches

Size 3- 8.5 inches

Size 4- 9 inches

To place straps measure IN from edge approx.

12 months- 1.5 inches

Size 2- 2 inches

Size 3- 2.5 inches

Size 4- 3 inches

Using thread, stitch the strap to the inside of the bodice on the front and back.

Add ribbon if desired around the waist and Viola’ done.

We are going to use the Lark Foot Knot to add the tulle to the bodice in the ch 2 spaces we made at the end.  Hold the bodice so that the hook slides into the ch 2 sp from the bottom of the bodice. Grab the tulle and pull thru the ch 2 sp about an inch or so, take the ends of the tulle and pull through the hole made in the tulle on the other side, pull tightly and create the knot. Repeat using the tulle in every ch 2 sp around.
