3.5mm crochet hook
sewing machine or needle and thread
My husband has a habit of carrying tea towels around the house the same way that linus carries his blankie, so finding a towel to wipe your hands on when you need one is a challenge. Hence the need to anchor them to something!
For this dress I used this pattern. It's fairly easy to follow and the only thing I did differently was to put a row of single crochet across the top of the bodice for a neater edge.
