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.
