Written Instructions:

  • Start with the waistband at your underbust
  • Place both straps over your shoulders
  • Fold the straps over themselves ½” to show the lining
  • Cross the straps in the back to make an X, keeping the lining folded over the straps
  • Bring the straps to the front and cross them on top of your breasts then dip down to the opposite underbust creating the sweetheart neckline
  • Cross the straps back over themselves at the center front to be able to wrap them back around the side of your body that they just came from (left back to left, right back to right)
  • Before bringing the straps to your back: take the straps from the center front and flip them to show the lining color. Flip again. Keep flipping the straps to create a candy cane effect for as long as you can
  • Wrap the straps around your back and to your front
  • Cross them over each other at the center front, then again
  • Keep flipping them in the candy cane if the straps are not long enough yet
  • Bring the straps to your back and tie in a double knot or knot and a bow
