First, I removed the collar from the dress.  Three sides of the collar were already hemmed so I only had to hem one side.  The difficult part of this project was creating the elastic band to connect both ends.  I had 1" wide elastic on hand so I cut a piece and pinned it to the ends of the collar and played with the fit until the headband felt comfortable.  I cut a piece of scrap material that was big enough to wrap around the elastic and was about twice as long.  I sewed the wide ends together but left the short ends open so that the elastic could easily slide through the pocket I had created. With the elastic in the material pocket, I scrunched the material into the middle so that the ends of the material were flush with the ends of the elastic.  I sewed one end of the elastic and material to the end of the collar and then did the same for the other ends.
