However, if you have a fuller bust these dresses are really flattering to your figure, and they keep you cool in the summer – what’s a girl to do?
I recently dreamt up this nifty little idea to solve this problem and its pants! Ladies wide lace panties to be precise, the ones that are made with just wide lace; you can pick up a pair for around £1.50 and Asda often do deals for 3 pairs for £5 so they are very inexpensive. Additionally, one pair will fix 2 dresses. What’s more, they come in a whole range of colours, so you are bound to find some that suit your dress perfectly. The lace of the pants is used to bridge the gap.
To get the lace in the right position, I find it’s better to put the dress on. Cut out the gusset from the pants, and cut up the side seams, this leaves you with a ‘V’ shaped piece. Now tuck the lace in the dress where you would like it to go. Try to get the seam or bow at the centre of the dress. The ‘V’ shape still allows you to show off a bit of cleavage if you desire.
Pin the lace into place from the front so that it holds whilst you take the dress off. You can always neaten up your pinning when the dress is off.
Then all you need to do is to sew the lace into place. I hand sewed then lace in with invisible stitches so that it didn’t show on the other side.
Because the lace has elasticised qualities I have also found that this also fixed cross over styles too as well as clothing made from jersey material.
