I am really surprised at the positive reactions I am receiving here. I thought it looked awful! Well, the stitches looked nice, but as far as the fit... well, that's another story.
I was thinking that maybe I could take the straps in an inch. I'll have my mother sew them in one inch then I can just cut the excess. Has anyone ever done that? I have read in Stephanie Pearl McPhee's books she has done it successfully, so long as the sewn edges are tight!
