Frilly edges on straps

This image shows another place to add a frill – on the outer edge of shoulder straps. It helps to hide any bra straps that may show and also give a plain strap a lovely finish.

You can use a frilly trim like to lovely ones I posted about yesterday or you can make them out of fabric. Here I have made the frill out of Tessuti’s ‘Bird Lover’ 100% cotton voile – which is also on the lower part of my top.

This frill is folded in half and gathered and inserted in between the two strap pieces – which are fused with a light weight interfacing.
