Lace Belt D.I.Y

008

With Paris Fashion Week rounding up, we are beyond obsessed with anything and everything black and white. The major trend highlighted at every show inspired us to create this lace belt. This Chanel inspired D.I.Y will spruce up a plain white tee or a fab gown ready to be taken out on the town. Check out our selection of elegant lace and beaded trims on our site.

SUPPLIES:
Beacon Magna-Tas 809 Glue

3″ Rigid Lace from M&J Trimming

Grossgrain Bow from M&J Trimming

Mundial 8.5″ Dressmaker Shears Scissor

SuppliesSTEPS:
1. Cut lace in half based on the floral design(One side will be larger than the other depending on which lace was selected)
2. Fold the thinner piece in half3. Glue both halves together creating a thicker piece (You can match the lace or mismatch for a more romantic touch…)

4. Pick up the leftover piece of lace and lay this piece under the now thicker band making sure it is centered.
Step 45. Using your Beacon Magna-Tac 809, now glue down this piece for an additional layered look
0066. Be creative! We glued on a bow, but feel free to add brooches, rhinestones, chains or studs! Make this lace belt your own canvas
0077. Ta Da!

Paris Fashion Week: Evening Wear

1

The evening wear showcased at Paris Fashion Week combined hard and soft looks. With peplum waists, feather detailing and cut-outs currently on trend it may not be too difficult to replicate these looks. The black and white based collections feature many tee length skirts paired with ballet flat shoes. This is a different approach compared to the clunky shoes dawned in years passed.

Here are a few of our favorite looks…
