Hi Sitara. If you crochet, you can buy an inexpensive ball of fine (or thin) crochet thread and use a very small hook to make petite lace trim for the dresses (I've done this). Crochet thread is so inexpensive you can get it in several colors, too. I have also used the same thread to create fine ribbon-like chains to serve as belts, handbag handles, laces and bows for shoes, etc. I salvage any trims I find on clothing that's being discarded, too. And - bows and ribbons from presents received. I'm a real pack rat and always look for salvageable fabric-friendly things for crafting. One year I picked up copper and silver scrubbies at the supermarket o make funky hair for clothes pin dolls. I've also bought nylon net shower scrubbies for ballerina doll tutus. I hope this gives you ideas for scavenging for your creations.
