How To Make Adjustable Bra Straps

"If you’ve ever tried bra making, you know just how complicated instructions can be on how to sew bra straps. The written tutorials and illustrated photos make the process seem overly technical and difficult. So, today I thought it would be helpful to simplify the process and walk you through each step. There’s even a video tutorial to guide you through each step! By the time you are done with this little tutorial, you’ll be able to confidantly create adjustable straps for all of your lingerie-making… or tank top making projects. Enjoy!"

  1. To begin, trim two pieces of 3/8” elastic to 2” and two pieces of elastic to 18” These will make up your bra straps.

  2. Take the 2” pieces of elastic and slip them through the round holes of your bra strap slides. Sew the ends in place.

  3. Take one 18” piece of elastic and slip it around the center bar of your bra strap slider. Pull 1” of elastic through and sew in place with a stright stitch. Trim away the excess.

  4. Slide the other end of 18” elastic through the round hole of your bra strap and back over and under the bra strap slider. This will complete your adjustable bra strap!

  5. Sew the raw edge of the 2” elastic about 2” from the center back of your bralette to secure.

  6. To attach the other side of your adjustable bra strap, place the right side of the foldover elastic and 3/8” elastic together and sew with a straight stitch.
