Met Gala 2019

Fashion News

It’s the first Monday of May and we just can’t keep calm because it’s Met Gala Day. Met Gala, formally known as Costume Institute Gala is an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.

It refers to the early ’60s when women and men would wear outfits that exaggerated and at the same time distorted their body shapes.

Step 1: Measure a piece of leather that has a width of four inches and a length of ¾ of the trivet’s circumference. A circle’s circumference is 2πr, and the circumference for our seven-inch-wide pot holder is 43.98 inches. Divide that by ¾ and our length of the leather is about 33 inches. Once measured, cut out the strip of leather.
Step 2: Hem the short edges of the leather with a needle and thread. Stitch the long edge of the leather to the trivet’s edge using a blanket stitch. Continue until the whole long edge of the leather is sewn on.
Step 3: Measure two strips of braided cord to the desired purse strap length. Hand stitch each end to the purse to create straps.
Step 4: Stitch on the bead to the top end of a trivet with a needle and thread or a piece of braided cord.Take another piece of braided cord and make a loop that is long enough to extend from one side of the bag to the other side. Stitch the loop’s ends on the trivet.

WHAT DO YOU NEED: 

1. old clutch-style purse;

2. tacky glue;

3. marabou boa;

4. scissors.

HOW-TO…

STEP 1: Lay your clutch flat and visually estimate how far apart the pieces of your boa need to be to get the kind of coverage you want.

STEP 2: Spread the tacky glue in vertical lines down the front of your clutch, and across the top below the clasp.

STEP 3: Starting from one side, lay one end of the boa onto the glue at the bottom of the clutch.

STEP 4:  Fold the boa piece over at the top of the clutch, and then loop it down towards the bottom.  Snip at the bottom of the clutch.

STEP 5: Repeat for all the lines of glue until the front of your clutch is completely covered.  Allow to dry and then trim the ends so they’re all one length.
