The front and lining originally have double back straps. For this version you’ll only need binding straps. 1 Set of back straps you can put aside, the back straps from the main front bodice you need for measuring how long your binding needs to be.
Tip: Measure the short side, the middle and the long side, add to each strap 3/8″ – 1cm extra (seam allowance) and subtract that number by 2. Sew a long binding strap in 1 time, you cut in the correct pieces afterwards. Use your back straps as a guideline.
I used a prefab binding with 1/2″- 1.2 cm finished width, or make it yourself.
