    Really cute, Proud of your construction efforts. Regarding the fabric fraying I have overlock machines but there are other ways to treat the seams, google seam finishes. Any fabric that will be laundered, prewash if is going to shrink or fade won’t be any surprising issues, press, then cut out pattern. Fray Check is also a good item to keep on hand.

    Are you finishing your seams? I had that problem on my first dress (had no idea I needed to finish the seams to keep them from unraveling) I suggest a pair of sharp pinking shears for a start, then you can move on to interlocking or other (nicer) methods of finishing like the french seam :) Hope that helps.
