Making epaulettes (epaulets)

You can always look beautiful and original, and at the same time you do not need to spend money on expensive items and unusual decorations. Unusual and original jewelry for clothes can be made with your own hands and they will look as good as purchased ones. Today, epaulettes are used in their brilliant costumes and world famous stars and women of fashion from around the world. In order to unusual decorate a simple sweater, denim or leather jacket, you can make your own epaulettes. 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 black thread.
  • Thin chains of two colors.
  • Decorative ribbon in dark blue.
  • Metal accessories for costume jewelry: embracing beads, fasteners for tapes.
  • Any metal elements for decoration.
  • Scissors.
Getting to the manufacture of epaulets. First, you need to give the hanger the correct and desired shape.I cut my shoulders with scissors and gave them the shape of a rectangle. We verify that they are the same.

Next we take a piece of black satin fabric and cut off two identical pieces so that they are larger than hangers. Each piece of fabric wraps the hangers and sews them in the middle. We try to sew tightly, so that the fabric neither crawls out, but keeps its shape.

Here you’re ready for two black rectangles. Now that the base is ready, it needs to be beautifully decorated.

First, cut off two pieces of ribbon. This ribbon can be purchased at the store of fabrics and accessories. You can take a ribbon of any kind and color, as long as you like it. Cut the pieces of ribbon sew with a needle and thread in the middle.

Now on both sides of the tape we sew on one hugger for beads.It seemed to me that they look very nice here.

Next on the front corners of the epaulet we attach one fastener for tapes. They are good because they are perfectly and tightly fastened due to their teeth and have a ring on which you can still attach something. In our case, I put two chains on the rings and, additionally, one metal stick each, which also looks good.

Now it remains to sew metal elements to the shoulder straps. I had a square shape. I first placed them on shoulder straps, looked at how it would look, and then sewed them tightly.
