What a pretty ballerina outfit! I know you want more wave, but I think the version you posted looks lovely, and I especially like the sparkly thread you used. I bet your granddaughter is tickled to have her doll match as well :)

Hi Patty....Wow! So nice to meet a pageant dress maker! I don't know if you will be checking back here but want to make sure you heard about using Sewer's Aide which she talks about in the video. I've used it since learning about it and I've had no problem with the metallic thread breaking. I will PM you too so I hope you see this info in case you hadn't heard about it. Thanks for the fishing line tip. I did try making another tutu with 30 lb test fishing line and that worked well especially with the tulle on a spool. I have to make time to review it yet. It's really nice to hear from someone who does this!
