    One possibility is to check the line of dresses by Nataya.

    Hi!
    Find a tailor or sewing business and describe to the owner what you need. A good fabric center will have a variety of interesting fabrics. Before you purchase any pattern, have your measurements ready. A tailor may make his own patterns or use ones you purchase. He or she can measure your bust, waist, hips, torso length, skirt length and the items will fit you to a T. Be sure to mention that you need to be able to extend your arms far in front and have the outfit fit appropriately in that position. Consider good clothing a long-term investment in your harp business. If using a tailor, realize that he or she will know far more about fabric-pattern matches than anybody else around.

    In Savannah, Georgia, on Bull Street is an extremely talented tailor. The shop name is “Gentleman Jim’s.” If you are anywhere near Savannah, his work is amazing.

    Sincerely yours,
    Susan Abken

    For one man’s point of view, avoid strapless and spaghetti strap gowns. Believe me, the men are out there wondering what keeps it up, etc.

    That sounded wrong.

    Or as my Dad called them, “dress-less evening straps”
