Subject: The Mission Maxi vs. similar patterns? Date: 11/22/12 10:22 AM

The Mission Maxi is a favorite of many, now I see there are others like M6559, a Kwik Sew and others? Any similar "sundress" patterns that are favorites for summer? Some of us better start in the winter to get those new spring/summer patterns done....

That is what they made "racer back bra's for" if you want to wear them with racer back cut in style tanks and dresses. So maybe check those out. No bra straps show at all then. Some people can get away with no bra at all for something like that sometimes, some others not quite so much sometimes :)

You can make elastic straps that wrap around the back straps and pull the back straps toward your CB. I've seen this done on bras, etc., but no sense in reinventing the wheel.
