This is another tutorial brought to you by designer Divya N.
- Tulle/gauze,tissue ( I picked a white & silver jacquard tulle)
- Satin tape (in a colour matching to the tulle). I chose beige
- Pearls, beads and focal objects
- A piece of felt or fabric felt
- Scissors, sewing needle and thread
- Clear glue
- Measure your wrist circumference and cut a length of tulle that is twice that measure.
- Choose the width depending on how broad or narrow you want the corsage to be, then pick the approximate center and start making gathering stitches from one end to the other. Leave 1/2" gap and repeat. Pull to gather and tie the knots.
- Press the tulle down (you can weigh it down with a book if your tulle/gauze is stiff). Then place the center of the length of satin tape (wrist circumference plus min 3"-4" on each side for tie up) along the length of tulle. You can make it as long as you want. Singe or fray check the edges of the tape before starting to stitch.You can either stitch them together using a machine or hand stitch as I did. Since I was hand stitching, I attached the silver beads and pearls as I went to save time.
- Before you start this project, think about your focal piece. It can be anything that you think will do justice to this corsage. Since I wanted mine to be simple, I chose a focal rose bead and a matching silver colour ring for the center. I first glued it down and ran a couple of stitches through it to secure it.Then complete the other side with pearls and beads.
- Finish and secure.
- Once finished, glue a strip of felt/fabric on the understand to cover the stitches and to provide stability to your corsage.
