I was going to use the panne velvet on the neck as "ribbing", but it was a pain to iron in half. While I was ironing, I remembered that I had some glittery blue fold over elastic. Thankfully it matched the dress.
I also did a lettuce edge hem on the dress and long sleeves because it's faster! I really wanted to use metallic thread in the rolled hem and in the past I've had issues with thread breaking. This time I had different thread (Gutterman), and it worked like a charm.
But we needed more bling, so out came the Silhouette SD. Moo chose a swirly shooting star, so I cut out that and a bunch of other stars. On the front of the dress we put the shooting star and little stars. Around the hem of the dress more stars.
Moo had a lovely time at the party, but I think Will had an even better. He was the star of the night with his crazy dancing.
