  4. Cut the narrow ribbon in half and apply glue to both ends of each piece.
  5. Fold in half and insert into the bodice to form the shoulder straps.
  6. Lay the three pieces of organza on top of each other and make 2 rows of running stitches through all layers along one edge. Note, depending on the qualities of your fabric, you may need only two or even one piece of fabric.
