I am completely confused about how to attach the straps and the top.

This is a clever way to reuse and repurpose vintage embroidery. Many of us have these pieces of art stashed away in storage. If you don't have these lovely fabrics, I have seen new machine embroidered sets of pillowcase sold in dollar and discount stores. They may not be as sentimental but would still work for this project and look beautiful.

Wow, everything about this dress is so adorable! From the layering of the dress to the cute flower embroidery and ribbon straps, there's nothing not to love about this.
