Written Instructions:

  • Start with the waistband at your underbust
  • Fold the edges of your straps in over themselves to reveal the lining color
  • In the back, make sure your straps are still folded over so you see the lining color, the front color, and the lining color again
  • Cross them over each other to make an X
  • Bring them around to the front and widen them out
  • If your dress is not tight enough on top, hold both straps with one hand and adjust as necessary with your other hand
  • Wrap your straps around you waist once
  • Cross the straps over each other at the back and flip to the lining color
  • Bring the straps around to the front and throw one strap over your shoulder to create a mock utility strap
  • Wrap the other strap around your waist
  • In the back: take the utility strap and loop it straight down through the strap around your waist
  • Take the other strap and loop it straight up through the same strap that the utility strap went through
  • Tie the straps together once then create a bow
  • Now you have a mock utility strap!
