Step 17: Attach the Straps
-Have a friend pull the straps over your shoulders to the edge of the armholes on the back of the bodice. Adjust the straps to a comfortable tension and ask your friend to mark with a pencil on the strap a line at the height of the top of the back bodice.
-Sew the straps to the dress at the front and the back. The straps should be inside the dress bodice. Use several lines of stitching to reinforce it.
-Trim the excess length from the straps.
-Congratulations! You finished the dress bodice. The rest is easy!
