Mine was transparent enough to see the drawing outlines through it. If yours is not, try using a window as a lightbox to trace, or cut the shape out of paper first.

7. Set strap length. Your mileage may vary.
You will need six pieces, about a foot and a half long.
You can always cut off the extra later, so make them longer if not sure.

Cut the Rope DIY Step 8 8. Attach the straps to the inside of the bra.
The double straps on the sides are optional, but they help this thing fit better, stay on, and give lift.
If you’re doing double straps, tie the bottom pair around your back as normal. Then, pass the top left one behind, across your back and to the neck strap on the right.

Cut out and sew on the red candy shape from white and red felt.
