When it comes to making a bra, constructing the straps are the home stretch. Sewn before or after the hook & eye is attached, it’s one of the last operations and means you did it! But just like a marathon, the last mile can be the most difficult. There are a lot of ins and outs, twists and turns and other maneuvers to finish. Don’t get your panties in a knot; I’ll break down the process for you (that joke was funny, right?).
Step 1: Cut a length of strap elastic 18” long. Feed one end of strap up through the bottom of one slider, then over the center bar and down through the other side. It should look like a belt buckle, with one short end and one long end.
Step 2: Fold the short side down and stitch to secure. Trim close to stitching.
Step 3: Turn elastic over and put the ring through the long side.
Step 4: Weave long side up and over center bar of the slider just like in step 1. Voila! The next step is to attach to bra.
