Step 6 Straps

Fold each strap piece lengthwise, right side facing in. Stitch long edges together. Turn straps right side out. Use tailor‘s chalk to mark a gathering line, 4 cm (15/8 ins) from each front strap end. ­Gather straps to each side of marked line and on front end, to a width of 4 cm (15/8 ins). Lay front strap ends under upper front edge, between markings, so that upper line of gathering meets fold edge. Pin strap ends to facing, not catch­ing front. Stitch straps in place, within fold edge of front and on lower edge of facing. Try on garment. Mark exact length to back edge on each strap. Measure another 4 cm (15/8 ins) from these marks and trim away remaining strap. Gather back straps ends as for front ends and ­stitch to back facing.
