A special touch

There's a new shirt here. It has a boat neck which is said to be flattering to my long face and long neck. I need all the flatter I can get. I just know, however, that my bra straps are planning to sneak out and display themselves at every opportunity. ( I know it's 'in style' to do that but not 'my' style.) So. Sew. I'm going to take some silk ribbon and snaps and make loops on the shoulder seams to control those voyeuristic straps. Back before the earth cooled and I stitched Vogue patterns, we did that. Just thought I'd remind you. Polly

I read on a newsgroup----maybe this one??????----where someone used a colored marker on metal---maybe bobbins? So I used a black permanent marker on safty pins to match a friends top to keep bra straps under control and pin to the shoulder seams. Hope this can help you! Barbara in rainey SC

Not exactly, Bobbie. My krinkly old fingers don't do dainty safety pins anymore. A ribbon beneath a strap and snap is heaps easier. Plus - I can just 'do it' without having to get it neatly. However . . . I'm having happy fun with a marker. It's a silver Sharpie. That rascal write visibly on black. I've been slowed down by which way is UP for the connections for hooking up the camera, the Onstar, the thumb drive and all manner of teensy things. Everytime I'm challenged and figure it out, I mark UP with my silver marker. How Sweet it is. Polly

I like your hint with a silver marker on black. We use a black marker on light color items. We mark on the gray vacuum the size belts to purchase. Barbara in SC
