A friend from out of town sent this dress for Allie (it's made from a rolling stones concert t-shirt). It was a family favorite of theirs, but their girl grew out of it... and one of the straps had ripped off. I stabilized the back of the fabric where the straps were attached with interfacing, then used a tight zig-zag stitch to reinforce the fabric/straps. The one strap that was ripped off had a much larger rip than the other straps, so I made a flower to sew over it to cover the mend. The tutorial for the flower was found here. I can't believe this was my first ever fabric flower! I like it.
