**Sew sleeves to dress by matching the center of the sleeve to the shoulder seam. Using a safety pin, pin in place. Then match the ends to the bottom of the armpit. Pin one side in place. Starting on the opposite side, begin sewing the sleeve in place. Try to match row ends with sc around. Once you have sewn the arm in place, then sew down the length of the sleeve to close the arm and finish off, tucking in your ends.

Button Tie:
ch7, sl st in 7th ch from hook, ch10, sl st in 7th ch from hook and in last 3 chs. Fasten off, weave ends.

**Attach 2 buttons to upper back corners as shown in the picture.


**Attach button band as shown.

Optional idea for bodice ribbon:

ch 4, sl st in 4th ch from hook, ch 107, sl st in 4th ch from hook and each ch across. Finish off, weave in ends and weave through beading on row 24 of bodice, tying in the back.
This would be very pretty in a contrasting but complementary color.
