I LOVE option 1, the wide strap version. Such pretty fabric and for $0.50?!?. Another winner!

You are the wizard of restyle!! This is fun and stylish. No straps needed. But wider if you go with them.

Wow. Thanks for all the nice comments and the votes. The wide halter strap is by far the most popular!!! (This is so fun to suggest alternatives and get such a helpful response ... it REALLY does help. And thanks, Schey for the explanation of how to make a ribbon/snap bra strap holder. I will definitely keep that in mind for other garments.

You are a sewing maniac this month. Wow, you're inspiring plus I'm getting in the mood to go tropical. I vote for the halter style strap. This is a great little simple top. FUN!

I love the color and style. I think it looks great without straps personally. If you are going for straps, the wide version will work best.

Oh Anita, this rocks! How great that the fabric was 50 cents. I like the halter style the best but keep in mind that you could wear either style easily.

First off I love the color and pattern of your top! Second, I love both versions. Leaning more towards the halter look, though. For the second look, you could always make loops with matching ribbon sewn onto the underside of the strap to hold the bra strap in place. Use snaps (small ones). I would put one in the front and one in the back of each strap for optimum control.
