Default Re: Pillow case dresses - 2 ways??

I haven't tried the other way, but I worry about the ribbons forever coming untied and the dress falling off. It is also good, because there is give so no choking hazard.

I think I am going try lining my dresses though. I think it would make for a much cleaner look. Do you line the whole dress or just the top (hope that makes sense)?

Thanks for the info on the elastic, I think that I will try it. I line the whole dress.
