Gather strap ends to a width of 4 cm (15/8 ins). Slip one strap end into opening in seam on upper right back edge and pin in place. Turn strap forward and slip under the band, from below, and through opening at neck edge. Turn strap toward back again, slip into opening in seam on upper left back edge and pin in place. After trying on dress, reach between main fabric and lining to pull neck edge out again. Sew seam openings closed, catching straps. Push neck edge in place again.
