This tutorial is about a simple add-on that helps you if you are bothered by
your bra straps showing on your shoulder or if your top is slippery and
has a tendency to fall off your shoulders. Of course, it solves only
the problem of the clothes you would wear a bra with, and we rarely
don’t, right? - regardless of the shape of your body a bra gives you
confidence and support. So let’s take advantage of that - on one hand -
and let’s not let that become a problem - on the other hand!

This is certainly not a discovery i just made - some of you might have been
doing this already! It’s an option I noticed on the short blouses worn
with a sari by Indian women, blouses which beautifully reveal a good
part of the shoulders. If you ever tried to fix the problem using 2
safety pins then you’ll surely appreciate the alternative! :))

These pictures were taken while making this improvement to this "design": ! I also used it
for this design "A Horse for My Kingdom" pictures "here": which i also published on burdastyle "here": ! And I’m planning to use it more - carefree-ness matters!

Would you use it? Take the poll on my blog and let me know!

Technique Materials

a strip of fabric, thread, safety pin, measuring tape, sewing machine (optional), 2 snap fasteners
