SOS for a Dress

My sister ordered a cute dress.

It came, but with some flaws. The fabric was unraveled for both shoulders.

Given that her sister is sooo gifted (yeah, a lot of modesty there!), she decided upon not returning it and gave it to me as a project. Which I gladly accepted.
I remembered my Pear project, so I thought about making some shoulder boards.
I used some red fabric remaining from the Rachel's skirt project.

Firstly, I sewed by hand the unraveled parts.
I eyeballed the material I needed for the shoulder boards and cut it. Then, I cut it into two pieces.

I sewed the margins by using the sewing machine and obtained two shoulder boards.

I sewed them on the shoulders of the dress.
