Step 5: Connecting the straps to the waist strip:
Another problem popped.
The straps being 30cm wide were too long and passed the armpit line, that happened because of the length difference between the chest and the waist.
I solved this problem with a combination of two methods.
I let the straps pass the armpit line around the back by 4cm, and the rest of the fabric, that i had left on the front, I collected with Equal folds and later on sew it stretched.
If you don’t want to add the waist strip to your dress, you should add the straps directly to the skirt using the same method.
You can see in the picture that I decided to pass the side point (armpit line) by 4cm, also to hide a bit the side of my bra.
the execs fabric being folded evenly-
One of the methods is to find the middle points each time and pin them together..
In the end we should have a waist strip that the straps are connected to in one side (the side without the suture!)
All of the pictures in this step demonstrate the connection of the straps directly to the skirt, and therefore the patters are facing each other.
