You can always look beautiful and original without ever needing to spend money on expensive things and unusual jewelry. Unusual and original jewelry for clothes can be made with your own hands and they will look no worse than purchased. Today, epaulettes use world-famous stars and fashionistas from around the world in their ingenious outfits. In order to unusual decorate a simple sweater, denim or leather jacket, you can make epaulets with your own hands. They will be a very original addition to the image.
What we need for the manufacture of epaulets:
- Shoulder pads (shoulder pads).
- A piece of black satin fabric.
- Needle with a black thread.
- Thin chains of two colors.
- Decorative tape in dark blue.
- Metal accessories for jewelry: bead hugs, ribbon fasteners.
- Any metal elements for decoration.
We begin to manufacture epaulettes. First you need to give the shoulders the right and the right form for us. I cut the shoulders with scissors and gave them the shape of a rectangle. We verify that they are the same.
Next, take a piece of black satin fabric and cut two identical pieces so that they are larger than the shoulders. We wrap shoulders with each piece of fabric and sew them in the middle. We try to sew tightly, so that no matter the fabric sprawls, it keeps its shape.
Two black rectangles are ready. Now that the base is ready, it must be beautifully decorated.
First cut two pieces of ribbon. Such a ribbon can be purchased at the fabric and accessories store. You can take a ribbon of any kind and color, if only you liked it. Sew the cut pieces of ribbons with a needle and thread in the middle.
Now, on both sides of the ribbons, we sew on one hugger for beads. It seemed to me that they look very good here.
Further on the front corners of the shoulder strap we attach one fastener for the tapes. They are good because they fit perfectly and tightly thanks to their teeth and have a ring on which you can still attach something. In our case, I put on two chains on the rings and one additional metal stick, which also look good.
Now it remains to sew metal elements to the epaulettes. I had a square shape. I first placed them on the shoulder straps, looked at how it would look, and then I sewed it tightly.
You can sew ready-made epaulets to a certain thing tightly or put them on a pin, and then you can remove epaulets and attach to other outfits.
