HOW TO DO A FRINGE NET TANK LIKE SELINA GOMEZ

image

I thought about a new style but wouldn’t spend much money on new clothes. I decided to create my own top like Selina Gomez.

Here are the steps:

1. Cut the tank into even strips.
2. Divide the strips into pairs and knot them for the first tier.
3. Take a strip from each knot and knot those ones to create the second tier.

This is another easy DIY without using the sewing machine and perfect for the summer.

Your shoulders and hips are around the same size with non defined waist. Your waist measurement is less than 9” smaller than your shoulders or hips. Banana shaped women commonly have short waist and flat bottoms.

DO:

  • Wear evening dresses that create body-shaping silhouette.
  • Wear peplum tops, dresses or skirts.
  • Wear pants of any style.
  • Wear empire waist tops or evening dresses.
  • Wear skirts of any style

 

DON’T:

  • Don’t wear wrap tops.
  • Avoid detailing around the waist.
  • Don’t tuck in tops if you have short waist.
  • Don’t wear clothing that are too tight.

Miranda Kerr’s Couture Wedding Dress

imageIn May Miranda Kerr and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel got married, but what the Victoria’s Secret model wore had – until now – remained firmly under wraps.

Inspired by the “iconic” gown worn by Grace Kelly at her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco, Kerr’s Haute Couture Dior gown was designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for American Vogue.

“I think it’s every girl’s dream to have Dior design her wedding dress,” Kerr told Vogue.

HOW TO DO: NO-SEW T-SHIRT BOW SLEEVES

Bow+sleeves+on+t+shirt

Would you like to have a t-shirt like on the picture?  You’ll need a shirt, a pair of scissors, some machine washable glue, measuring tape, and about 10 minutes of your time. Now just follow the tutorial step by step.

1. Cut a 2.5 inch slit from the top of the shoulder down toward the armpit on both the front and the back of the sleeve. It’s important that you are cutting outside of the seam.  (This means your total slit length will be 5 inches.)  Once you’ve finished that, there’s a possibility that the shoulder seam might hang outside the shirt, like it is in the picture.  To avoid this, you should cut the unsightly seam off of the shirt in the area where it was visible.  Repeat this process also on the other sleeve.

2. Carefully cut off the very bottom of the shirt, below the seam stitching.  Save this strip of fabric for step 3. You’ll be using it to make the centre of the bow.

3. The strip of fabric from step 2 will be folded in half.  Unfold it and cut out two 2.5 inch strips.

4. Use your fingers to pinch the centre of one of the sleeves.

5. Wrap one of the strips from step 3 around the sleeve where you pinched it.  Put a dab of glue on the end of the strip, there you can see a star in the picture.

6. Fold the other end of the strip over the glue so that the strip becomes a circular band around the sleeve.  Pinch it tightly between your fingers to make sure that the glue is secure.  Repeat steps 3 through 6 on the other sleeve.  Before you trying on your new shirt, let the glue drying!

If you have a rectangle shaped body like Kim Kardashian and Kate Winslet your build is characterised by:

  • Bigger thighs
  • A rounded bottom and hips
  • A small waist
  • A full bust

DO:

  • Dresses with empire line that goes in under the bust.
  • Dresses with hemline no shorter than knee length.
  • Tops with banding or nipping at the waist.
  • Tailored shirts and jackets.
  • High-waisted trousers and pencil skirts.
  • Skirts that will show off your great legs.
  • Skinny trousers.

DON’T:

  • Straight shapes that hide your waist.
  • Details that create additional volume around your bust, tummy, thighs.
  • High necklines that cover up your cleavage and décolleté.
  • Narrowing leg lines or wide/short sleeves which finish near your bust.
