My daughter wear the dresses with no problems but my daughter wears mostly dresses when we go out and when we get home I take them off immediately if they are fancy dresses (church dresses, J&J or my handmade dresses).

I use a Simplicity pattern to make the knot dresses and I never tought about childprooving it. My toughts after this happened were to make an X seam on the back of the strap attached to the bodice but I am not sure if it will look all right.
Which pattern did you use so I can look at it??? I probably have it.
