How can I make the straps larger?

Post by jjcpammc09 » Wed Mar 24, 2010 3:21 pm

I am going to be making Princess Serenity's gown from the anime Sailor Moon. My question is that how can I make the straps larger for the gown? This is the pattern that I will be using for the gown...
I see where the straps are suppose to be on the gown for the pattern but I don't like where it my other question is how do I put the larger straps on the gown to make it look like Princess Serenity's gown?
Thank you!

my suggestion would be to draw the sleeve in the kind of shape you would like, get some "practice fabric" and just play around with it until you get a shape and size that works for you. have someone measure how long the straps should be first, so that you have a ballpark figure of how long they should be.
