So now that you have both of these done, you can start stringing it through. Cutting off those. It's a good idea if you have some type of tool that you can help push it in. Just make sure it's something that's not going to damage the suit, or you can just kind of work through with your fingers. If you do make a little bit too small, working it through your fingers might be a little difficult. It's almost done. And also, you want to remember you don't want to pull too hard because you can break the stitch and then you're going to have to take it out and stitch it again. And then it gets to the other side, just pull it right on out. Then you can kind of just get a picture of how the top is going to look. So just like that. And then at this point, if you did want to add some padding into it, you can do it at this time. You can take out your string, or you don't have to, and then you would just put your pad into it and just sew it along the edges again, or you can do that at the same time that you sew in your fabric--the elastic, excuse me. And then you just want to do the same thing to the other side, and then just string it right on through. Just pull it through and now you're halfway done. You have the end of your straps and you have the triangles. So now the next part that you need to do is always trim off your threads to make the suit look clean.
