Designing Straps for a Summer Halter Top or  Sun Dress

Anyone can be taught to sew, buy some fabric, follow a pattern, and make a top. However, it's the little extra things that are added to an article of clothing that sets one designer apart from another.  Take a look at this cute summer top for example.  The pattern called for regular fabric for the straps.  However, check out the different ideas a designer could use for this.

This is what the pattern called for.  A small spaghetti strap made from the same fabric that the top was made from.
How about trying this cool idea for your strap!

Braid a strip of yellow lace, yellow ribbon, and fabric the top was made from. Easy...but looks very creative.

This clever idea is just a strip of fabric that the top was made from, with matching beads held in place by knots every inch and half. How creative!
How about just using a soft ribbon for a strap.
How about some matching soft lace for a strap.
And you can combine straps.  This is soft ribbon at the bottom and the fabric spaghetti strap over top.
