Bought myself a beautiful dress to go to a wedding tomorrow. In typical Sparkler style, I have left it until the last minute to sort myself out.
The straps on the dress are a tiny bit long and the back of the dress goes down a bit too low and shows off my bra. I need to shorten the straps and don't know the best way I should do it.
They are thin straps - and I was thinking I could either cut a bit off each one and stitch it back (my sewing isn't very neat) or just fold the strap up under the seam and put a couple of small stitches in.
What should I do?
Personally I'd shorten the strap and sew it back in to the inside of the dress at the back. Try to carefully stitch into the inside layer of the dress so that the stitches aren't showing on the outside.
I used to be a medical secretary before dds were born. Whenever I got a ladder in my tights - I used to temporarily fix it so it would last for the rest of the day with Tippex. Only did this when the ladder was high up on the leg under my skirts. I didn't go round with big white blobs showing around my knees and ankles!!!!! LOL
