Detachable straps

Madeleine's picture

I want to put some detachable straps on my daughter's wedding gown.  I have seen these frequently on swimsuits and thought it would be easy enough to purchase some little hooks that slide into ribbon or elastic loops.  However, I have not seen those hook type ends that I've seen on the RTW swimsuits.  Can anyone suggest an alternate method for the detachable straps or a resource for those hooks?  Thanks!

Thank you for your reply.  Unfortunately, it looks as thought the website only offers the hooks wholesale with a minimum $50 order!

I also saw them while in a JoAnn's Fabrics store and I am sure they have them at FabricDepot in Portland, Or

Sewsassy does sell wholesale, but they also sell retail.  If you read the description above the list of hooks here is what it says. "SWIMSUIT  S HOOKS $1.25 package of 12, $10.00 package of 144
Clear Plastic.".


Just don't click on the wholesale link.  It just lets you know you CAN buy them wholesale IF you want to. 


I have ordered from SewSassy and they are very helpful and the service was good.

Thank you!  I guess I misunderstood the site.  I saw the price for one package, but didn't see how to order them.  I'll check it out again.
