It has been sitting around for a couple of weeks waiting on the final bit of crocheting and some straps to be added.
For the straps I went to the local haberdashery and bought lingerie fastener rings and clips and some ribbon that is the appropriate width. I was surprised at how easy it was to put these things together to make adjustable straps.
- Attach one end of the ribbon to the centre of the clip
- Attach the fastener ring to the back of the garment
- Pass the other end through the ring then through the clip and sew it to the front of the garment.
When I tried it on with the straps the cups didn’t sit correctly. I fixed this by sewing the centre edge together, I didn’t need the gap that is in the pattern – after all we are all built differently.
I’m not completely happy with the back it sits too loose in my opinion, I made the size to give zero ease, I should have gone for negative ease. It is comfortable and sits ok, I would just prefer the back tighter.
