As a member of the VaVaVoom Club since puberty strapless garments have never been at the top of my must wear list but when I spied a lurvly tube-topped beach dress for a mere €0.50 at the flea market I figured I’d give it a whirl – after adding some straps of course:
Get your straps on with my speedy how to add straps to a strapless garment tutorial:
Grab your strapless victim & a length of coordinating fabric
fold the fabric in half lengthwise with right sides facing & stitch into a tube
flip the tube right side out & press making sure that the seam is centered on what will eventually be the back of the straps
chop the tube in half
decide your ideal strap length, cut to size and tuck the raw ends in
press the ends flat and your straps are complete!
arrange & stitch to your strapless gear
*I know, I know…I could just let my bra or bikini straps show but I’ve always thought that looked awkwardly sloppy & unkempt…the straps kinda class up the look don’tcha think?
