I still love the uniforms, but I am less enamored of keeping my bra straps from showing. I resolved to make those things that keep them in place. I don’t know if those things have an official name, but I guess I can call them bra strap holders. I did a search and found a good tutorial that explained how to sew in the kind where you crochet the thread and attach a snap. Here’s the link. However, I was having trouble getting the crochet-with-thread technique to work, and wanted these done, so I got out some ribbon I had and improvised. The result was great. They don’t really match, but you can’t see them from the outside anyway and they keep my bra nicely in place.

Holy cow! You appear to be almost caught up with your blog postings! I would hazard to say that this has kept you extra busy this week!
I guess I'm a little dim but I can't quite figure out how these work. Do you have a picture of them in action, so to speak?
I'll see what I can cook up. But I can give you a hint that the dresses are on the hanger inside out, so what you see will be inside the dress when I put it on. There is a snap at the neckline and that unhooks and the bra strap gets sandwiched between the dress and the ribbon. It's pretty awesome.
I love my dresses that have these built in. So nice to not worry about the strap dropping down, which is just annoying! Nice addition.
