    Hi! I have two quick questions: Did you use two layers of fabric for the dress or just one? And also, the width of the dress should be slightly longer than your biggest measurement so it over laps right? Thank you!

      Sorry for the late response!! I only used one layer, but it’s advisable to use a lining depending on your fabric type of course. Yes, for the width of the dress you have to consider that they overlap.

    Hey there!
    I’m still kind of confused about the hair, like the bead/ball part. So you tie the sections of hair off with some elastics, and slip the ball over it and it stays in place? Also, do you use like the small, clear elastics or actual hair ties? (I’m doing this on my actual hair so I’m curious ^-^”)

      Hi there! Sorry if this is a bit late! Yes, that’s exactly how you said it! I use small, clear hair elastics, force the balls over it, and they stay in place because they grip the elastics. It’s tough to explain but a whole lot easier to do when you put it into practice! If you’re using your real hair, make sure you use really light beads, as the elastics may slip down (along with the ball) due to the weight–real hair has natural oils and wigs don’t, so they may slide a bit. I hope that helps!

        Awesome! Thanks! I got the clear elastics, made pretty much everything except the actual dress/cardigan itself. I did a mock-up, and when I was looking back over this post, I found out we are the same size. Like pretty much all our measurements are the same xD Creep, huh?
