How to do an spaghetti strap for your dress

How to do an spaghetti strap for your dress

A basic technique that can help you create lots of different hacks for your patterns is to learn how to make spaghetti straps. With a simple strip of fabric you can create straps for your blouses and dresses as well as a loop to apply to any part of your garment.

I'm going to show you two ways to make this type of spaghetti strap. One with visible stitching and the other without any visible stitching.


The first thing to do is to cut a rectangle of fabric. The width can vary depending on the width of the strap you want, but a standard size would be 3.5 cm.
The length is up to you depending on how long you want your strap or tie to be.

In the first method the stitching will be visible. You will see how easy it is.
All you need to do is fold the edges of the rectangle inwards and press with an iron. Then fold the rectangle in half, leaving the edges hidden.

Now all you need to do is stitch along the edge to hold the strap in place.

In the second method, the stitching of the strap will be hidden. This means that the sewing process will be a little different.
You start with your rectangle of fabric. You have to fold the rectangle in half by placing the right sides together and machine stitching.

If the seam allowance is large, you can cut it off. Then stitch a zigzag stitch to reinforce the seam.

You have to turn the strap out using a turner loop. There are different types of turner loops, a very common one is like a kind of large needle.
By tying a thread on the end of the strap and the needle you can pass the needle through and pull to turn it around.

It’s done! See you soon!
