From episode 14; 'Suited for Success'. I love Rarity.
The song is originaly called "Putting it Together" and was from the 1984 musical "Sunday in the Park with George", made by Stephen Sondheim. Barbara Streisand then did a cover of the song on a 1985 album of showtunes. The song appears in the 1992 (1999 Broadway) revue "Putting it Together" because it's a collection of songs by Stephen Sondheim.
Side note: Comments including 'Hasbro is the evil', 'original song sucks', 'other cartoons are inferior' and 'males watch this lolol' will be removed because I can no longer accept this stupidity. I do not care for your age or gender and I do not want you to show me your sexism when I'm in my idealistic land where everyone is equal.

Lyrics:
Thread by thread, stitching it together
Twilight's dress, cutting out a pattern snip by snip
Making sure the fabric folds nicely
It's the perfect color and so hip
Always got to keep in mind my pacing
Making sure the cloth's correctly facing
I'm stitching Twilight's dress

Yard by yard, fussing on the details.
Jewel neckline. Don't you know a stitch in time saves nine?
Make her something perfect to inspire
Even though she hates formal attire
Got to mind those intimate details,
Even though she's more concerned with sales.
It's Applejack's new dress.

Dress making's easy
For Pinkie Pie something pink
Fluttershy something breezy
Blend color and form, do you think it looks cheesy?

Something brash, perhaps quite fetching
Hook and eye, couldn't you just simply DIE
Making sure it fits forelock and crest
Don't forget the magic in the dress
Even though it rides high on the flank
Rainbow won't look like a tank
I'm stitching Rainbow's dress

Piece by piece, snip by snip
Croup, dock, haunch, shoulders, hip
Thread by thread, primmed and pressed
Yard by yard, never stress
And that's the art of the dress

Now, the stars on my belt need to be technically accurate.
Orion has three stars on his belt, not four
Stitch by stitch, stitching it together
Deadline looms, don't you know the client's always right
Even if my fabric choice was perfect
Gotta get them all done by tonight
Pinkie Pie, the color is too obtrusive
Wait until you see it in the light
I'm sewing them together

Don't you think my gown would be more me with some lollipops?
Well, I think...
Balloons?
Well...
Do it!
Hour by hour, one more change
I'm sewing them together, take great pains

Fluttershy, you're putting me in a bind
Rainbowdash, what is on your mind
Oh my gosh, there's simply not much time
Don't forget, Applejack's duds must shine

Dressmaking's easy
Every customer's call
Brings a whole new revision
Have to pick up the pace, still hold to my vision

That constellation is Canis Major, not Minor.
French haute couture, please.
Eeeh...
What if it rains? Galoshes!
More balloons! Oh no, that's too many balloons.
More candy! Oh, less candy.
Oh wait, I know! Streamers!
Streamers?
Whose dress is this?
Streamers it is.
What?
Aren't you going to tell me to change something too?
No, I just want my dress to be cool.
Do you not like the color?
The color's fine, just make it look cooler.
Do you not like the shape?
The shape's fine, just make the whole thing, you know, cooler.
It needs to be about 20% cooler.

All we ever want is indecision
All we really like is what we know
Gotta balance style with adherence
Making sure we make a good appearance
Even if you simply have to fudge it
Make sure that it stays within our budget
Got to overcome intimidation
Remember it's all in the presentation

Piece by piece, snip by snip
Croup, dock, haunch, shoulders, hip
Bolt by bolt, primmed and pressed
Yard by yard, always stressed
And that's the art of the dress
