Re: How to Make a Floating Shoulder Pad

I of the Cocker Spaniel shoulders (or perhaps "shoulder" would be more accurate, since they aren't even) LOVE this idea! I wear shoulder pads with EVERYTHING except perhaps my nightgown -- ha! -- and it can be a real challenge in certain garments. Plus, I hate that little "dent" that may appear at the end of the shoulder pad nearest your neck, right next to the dent that's already in existence due to the ever-prsent bra strap. This is such a great idea. THANK YOU for sharing it with us in such a clear and concise way. :o)
