BONJOUR MONSIEUR

This quick and simple moustache vest stands out from the crowd, the moustache is detachable so there are many ways to wear it. For a more masculine touch, combine with a blazer for a very quirky bow tie!



You will need:
Pen
Paper
Black Fabric (preferably remnants)
Stuffing
Matching Thread
Tacking Thread
Scissors
Pins
Needle
Safety Pin
Plain t-shirt/Vest


Step 1: First of all, draw out a template of a moustache on A4 paper, draw it landscape as big as you can so its proportionate with the top.


Step 2:     Once you are happy with the moustache, cut it out and pin it onto the black fabric.
Step 3: Next, using tailors chalk draw the outline onto the fabric (do this twice) and then cut both out.




Step 4: Place both cuttings on top of each other with right sides facing in. Pin and tack.

Step 5: Take out the pins and then sew half a cm away from the edge using a sewing machine with the matching thread. Remember to leave a gap so you can turn the fabric out to the right side.



Step 6: Now, pull out the tacking and turn the moustache inside out. Use a pick to get the ends out.
Step 7: Cut the stuffing up into small pieces and then stuff into the moustache.


Step 8: Using the matching thread, hand sew the hole up and on the back of the moustache, attach a safety pin.
Step 9: Attach the moustache to your top. Et fini!

Tell me what you think of this tutorial in the comments below or even show how yours turned out, I would love to hear from you!

WELCOME

This is the beginning of my blog which combines my interests in fashion and sewing. Here you will find little projects inspired by catwalk trends which are simple to create, as well as posts about fashion and my outfit ideas. I hope to get this blog on its feet in the next couple of weeks with the hope that you will enjoy it as much as I have creating it!
