I am going to try it again later. I have to just concede that the dress has won right now. I am not giving up, but I will go onto something I can accomplish to get me courage back up, and tackle it again.
Well it has been a few days, and no response.... are we busy crafters, girls?? LOL
I have been trying to wing a shelf bra. I was able to get the front done fairly right, but I am having a problem with the back puckering at the small of my back. I have tried loosening the fabric around that area, and it is still doing it. I am just going to put this aside for now...... though not for long the weather here is getting very nice for this type of top, and go on to my next projects!!
My DH just bought be a combined 16 yards of fabric the other day, and has already requested what patterns for me to make with them .... Men, aren't they the cutest
I bought a nice RTW halter dress a few years ago. I had to enlarge the side seams a bit to be able to wear it comfortably. Since then, nature has been playing a cruel joke on my girls, they keep wanting to to go south. How can I add some support to the top to keep them where they need to be.
I have searched the posts, and all I keep reading is to go and buy a convertible bra. I would really love to add a shelf bra to this rather than spend the money on another bra.
I have a pattern for a tankini top, that has a nice bra in it, but I don't know how to alter it for a low back halter. I am still learning the ins and outs of sewing, and I think this would be a great project to try.
