|2||Use your tape measure to measure the length of the spaghetti strap, from the seam of the front neck point to the back neck point on your dress.|
|3||Place your bias strip muslin block on the table. On the diagonal line, measure over 1 ¼” (3.2cm) using your clear plastic ruler, to create a bias strip from one corner of the muslin block to the other. This will be for the spaghetti straps.|
