The strap is really cute, and the button detail is perfect! :)

Thanks for bringing this pattern to my attention! I've avoided making this style top because of the bra strap issue, but you have it solved in two ways: cup options or your wide strap! Thanks, Helen.

Great top and love the straps. How stretchy are they? Do you think they'd work for swimwear? Thanks for the review.

You do have a great album of pictures for your sewing. Such detail and the pictures are so clear. I envy your talent!

I was just flipping through your photo album - you have such a beautiful wardrobe. Your fabric choices and the little details, like the straps you added to the top here, make the garments so unique. Hope you get some rain soon!

I love your fabric and the strap detail. Sounds like you'll get lots of good wear out of this top. It's cute!

Thanks for the review. I purchased this pattern a year ago and never tried it. Really need a new bathing suit. Your top turned out very nice.

Very pretty. Hope it cools off soon.

Helen - I was in Tessutis this week and the girl recommended the stretch strap you used for just this purpose - what a coincidence. Good idea about the top for summer - I'm in the same quandry about what to make. I haven't picked up that we're on level 4 restrictions in Sydney - so I need to check this out. Thanks for the review.
