What advice would you give someone starting this project? To make this dress, you need to sew multiple rows with elastic thread across the top. Instead of stopping the machine and trimming the threads after each row, you can guide the fabric down after each row spiraling around the top. Make sure there is enough thread in the bobbin after each few rows.
