I have shelved this project for a while 'cos it was just stressing me lol!! I sewed the bra in by taking apart an old bra. I hade the top of the dress using a pillowcase, then I just sewed the bra in along the underwires- NOT the rest of the bra, so basically it has bra bits flapping about inside util you do it up, then you can zip the back properly....I then cut the straps, put the whole shebang on and tied the straps around my neck to know where to sew the elastic together, took it off again. marked it with washable marker.
the cover for the strap was made like a scrunchie, threaded all the way onto one side, the elastic of the strap sewn thgether at the marked points, then the cover pulled all the way down and sewn to the bra base.

Keena- so true. like I said, I kept the bra part. I'm gonna so domething, just not right now 'cos I don't want to look at it lol!!!

Super dress I love it, and love the idea of using a bra for the top part!!  I wish I could wear halternecks but my the weight from my bust quite literally would snap my neck, ack. 

Its freaky cos I bought the exact matching valence sheet about 10 yrs back and got my mum to make me a wrap around skirt with it, well it's not freaky it just made me go like 'wow small world'.... anyways I digress, whilst the valence bit made a cool flounce at the bottom of my skirt that I love, your dress is sooo much nicer, plus my skirt has a habit of falling down and exposing my bottom  Shocked
