DIY Bridal Lace Capelet

DIY Lace CapeletGreetings!

I hope you are all doing well.  I finally completed the Bridal Lace Capelet Tutorial Series!  Yes, series:)  During my planning and preparation phase, I thought the tutorial can be done in one video.  However, as the project progressed, it expanded to two…then three.  Because this series challenged me technically as well as creatively, I gained a lot of knowledge from it.  And when my mind and imagination expands, I get super excited! (the nerdy side in me;)

So when can I wear the Bridal Lace Capelet?  You can wear it during your wedding ceremony to have a little modesty or it is even a great bridal accessory during this Fall and Winter season.  The Bridal Lace Capelet is a great way to dress up a simple wedding gown as well as keep you warm.  Because it is lace, it won’t take away the design element of your wedding gown which can be seen through the lace.

Well, feel free to view the DIY “Bridal Lace Capelet” Series:

Part1of3: Making the Capelet Pattern.  You will learn how to make a capelet pattern according to your unique measurements.  You will be taking 4 custom measurements: Length, neck width, shoulder, and capelet width.

Part 2of3: Creating the Bias Tape.  The bias tape is a great tool to hem curvy areas on your garment, for example the necklines and armholes.  For the capelet, we will be using the bias tape for the neckline and the front hem.  I chose organza so the lace design can still be seen at the hemline.

Part3of3: Cutting & Sewing the Capelet.  In this tutorial, you will learn how to sew the whole capelet and adding the finishing touches.

{ISSARA} Ruffle Neckline Accessory – One Accessory, Multiple Styles

Okay Ladies…do you want different style options in one accessory?  Well, here it is.  The {ISSARA} Ruffle neckline accessory is something fun and will give you multiple looks in one piece.  I can see this worn at a casual destination wedding where you use one style to the ceremony and another to the reception.  Need to cover up a strapless dress?  Put it over your shoulders.  Are you ready to party?  Slide one side under your arm and party it up.  Have fun with it!

I can also see this being made for the Bridesmaids.  They can each accessorize with it and all wear it differently.

Starting with this video, I will be introducing the option to learn more advanced sewing techniques.  Well, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much I did designing the concept.  Thank you for visiting!

Simple DIY LINDA Shrug & DAWN Bolero


Combine the LINDA & DAWN

You can make this dramatic Bolero by using three very simple tutorials, The LINDA Shrug, the DAWN Bolero, & the CAMRYN Flower.  I have attached it below.

*NOTE:  I made two LINDA Shrugs for a fuller look and sewed it side by side along the  neckline of the DAWN bolero.  Finally, I accented it with 3 CAMRYN Flowers to complete the look
