|This tip is borrowed from a website. For a more detailed description, go to http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2048469/how_to_make_bra_strap_holders.html?cat=46. I made a tank top that fits fairly well, but the shoulder s are a bit too far apart, and my bra straps were peeking out. This bra strap holder keeps my bra straps hidden, and is not noticeable from the outside.
Materials for the Bra Strap Holder
1/4" wide polyester ribbon. Each ribbon should be about 1" - 1 1/4" long depending upon the garment's shoulder width. Melt the ribbon ends (to prevent unraveling) by touching the cut ends with a flame. Be careful to not hold the ribbon in the flame long enough that the melted ribbon creates a ball. You merely want to melt the threads enough to bond them. Select a ribbon color that matches the garment, if possible.
Small needle and thread.
How to Make the Bra Strap Holder
Sew the female part to the end of the ribbon.
Sew the other end of the ribbon to the garment's shoulder seam allowance near the neckline.
Sew the male side of a snap to the garment's shoulder seam allowance. Position this snap part so that the ribbon will not pull the garment's material when it is snapped. You don't want for your bra strap holder to create a pucker in your garment.
