Styling Tip Every Woman Needs To Know | Slimming & Affordable For Mature Women Over 50


today I’m going to show you a styling
tip that every woman needs to know it’s affordable its slimming its DIY and
it’ll come in at under $20 hi I’m Schellea and welcome to Fabulous 50’s today I’m
going to show you how to make something like this which cost me four hundred and
fifty dollars I’m going to show you how you can make it at home yourself for
twenty dollars and it’s so easy you’re not going to believe it and here are all
the benefits of this particular garment it moves like magic so when you walk it
kind of sort of moves with you which is very very feminine and I love that and
the other thing is it’s very slimming because the lines coming down and the
drape of this fabric is really just giving length to my body
another major bonus is it covers your belly fat so anything that you’ve got
hiding underneath that you’d like smoothed out can be achieved with making
something like this and I’m going to make it a little bit different length to
the one that I have here just to show you the difference of what you can make
at home depending on your body shape I’m also going to show you how to tweak it
if you have a big bust and what to do if you’re smaller on top I’m going to show
you how to tweak it if you’ve got a big tummy it hides arms and it’s just flowy
and beautiful step number one is the easiest thing you go to the store and
you choose a piece of fabric this size and you choose a fabric that has a nice
drop on it and what I mean by that is when you let it fall it just falls
nicely it’s not stiff and whether you’re going to make this the summer or for
winter the same rule applies it’s got to have a drop and that’s what gives you
the beautiful drape of the fabric so this is kind of heavy this is a little
bit of a knit and it’s stretchy the first thing you do is hold it up to your
neck you decide where you want this piece the front piece to finish so on
this one here it finishes quite high and if you’d like to cover your tummy
and disguise that you make the length lower which is what I’ve done on this
one here and I’ll show you in a moment and I like my length to come down a little
bit lower because I don’t like this look here of just plain pants and I’ll
just quickly show you what I’ve done here which is another little tip okay so
I would not like to wear this just by itself because I don’t think that looks
very attractive or very feminine so what I do is just get a piece of fabric like
this and it’s stretchy this is fake suede and then I wrap it around my waist with the long bit down and a short bit
here and then I tie it just like that for me I like to just cover it up it’s
given me a asymmetric line here and that brings the eye down so it makes me look
a little bit taller than what I am I’m five foot three and if you’ve got a big
bottom it covers your bottom as well that’s just a little extra thing that I
wanted to show you but that’s what I do anyway back to the top after you’ve
found the perfect length for you and you’ll measure that out depending on
your body shape you’ll take the piece of fabric and you’ll fold it in half just
like that and take this part in the middle and put
a pin there so you know that’s the center and the center here is going to
go over your head how simple is this this is the exact
same pattern that I have with this beautiful blue Kashmir four hundred and
fifty dollar top and then we’re going to have one sleeve which is only a cut one
head and neck and then another sleeve it couldn’t be simpler I’m gonna show
you three different ways to wear this okay this is what I made for 20 dollars
and all I’ve done to those places where I cut holes in my neck and my sleeve
here and my sleeve here is just over lock I just over locked around where the
frayed edges were and that’s all I had to do if you’re fancy and you know how
to sew properly you can do a proper hem on that but it’s not necessary so as you
can see this moves beautifully it’s very soft and flowy my arms just have the
perfect amount showing so if you don’t like your arms very much and it’s summer
this is the most perfect thing to cover your arms because this is all you’re
going to see and this is the nice part of most people’s arms and here are
things that you can tweak first of all you can tweak the neck so cut the neck
you know just enough to get your head through and start there so once you’ve
got it on go to the mirror and stand there and have a look at yourself and
just see where it looks better with the cut if it looks too much like it’s
suffocating you cut a little bit more and if you’re very
large in the chest just cut a little bit more again because you’ll notice the
more you cut the better it’s going to look so you can cut this right down so
it’s off the shoulder and you can sort of bring it down I like to have it up
high that’s just how I like to wear it but there’s so many different ways
because we’ve all got different body shapes so cut enough to fit your head
over and then start tweaking once it’s on and then you won’t go too far that
way another thing you can do is adjust this height and this is about the height
it was for my blue one and if that was the case I’d wear something like this
and these are just Spanx tights so they kind of work really well with everything
and suck you in which I love and you know when you walk you’ve just
got this beautiful goddess thing happening and I love it that’s how
simple it’s literally one bit of fabric with three holes one two three plus I’ve
got an extra bit of fabric which I cut off the bottom here and I have also over
locked the edges and if it was cold I would fold this piece in half wrap it
around my neck and loop it through and then that’s just a little bit warmer
also you can take this piece put it over your shoulder so you’ve got another
piece of drape and take this piece tuck it in create a different line altogether
and then you’ve got it’s just a different thing that you can make and
you can create no one else will have the same thing I’m going to show you now how
to wear it in a different way this look can be very very summery too so I’ve
just put white jeans on and a contrasting color necklace and ring take
this bottom edge put it up here on your shoulder and pin it now you’ll hide the
pin so that you can’t see it but I’m just going to show you what it looks
like and you can put a brooch there as well but it just gives a different look
and it’s very very summery no matter what you’re hiding under here your big
belly or your big hips or your big thighs everything’s concealed and it
just all skims over your body rather than clinging to it so if you had a very
sheer fabric you could wear this over your swimwear or you could wear it just
over shorts and a singlet and at nighttime you could wear it over a tight
skimming dress now for summer you can wear a sarong any kind of sarong just
tie it so that the angle of the bottom is going downwards in an asymmetric line
take the hem and tuck it in and then you can take your sleeve up and up so you
can wear it with sleeveless and look how beautiful that just drapes
or you can take another piece of fabric and then thread that through the neck and that’ll just give you another way to
wear it and wear this sleeve down so that would look really nice just going
out for dinner and you can create any of these looks with one piece of fabric
ten minutes worth of sewing and zero skill in cutting so it doesn’t matter if
you’re too tall too short too wide underweight overweight this will work
for you it’s just a matter of how you wear it
and you’ll always feel good because you’re never going to have to hold your
tummy in and you know hide the bits you don’t like I really hope that you got
inspired to get creative and make something for yourself you’re going to
look amazing and you’re going to feel amazing

  1. Schellea, you have such wonderfully, creative ideas; SO
    DO-able! Thank you so very much for sharing such marvelous concepts and how to implement them. Even though I am far from a seamstress, I with a bit of practice on inexpensive fabric, I believe even I can accomplish such a project! And, if not, then, off to the tailor I go with my selected bits of material!
    Enjoy an amazing day!

  2. Hey Schellea, I tried your idea and it was great. Thanks a lot for your inspiriationπŸ’πŸŒΊ

  3. This is a great idea Schellea! I'm going to try this but I think I am going to make the neckline wide so it falls off one shoulder.

  4. you could use that long piece as a turban πŸ™‚ love the style AKA "over 70 still glamorous " πŸ™‚

  5. I just envision this whole piece in a beautiful cashmere in camel! I wouldn’t wear something so covering in daytime summer, in fact I wouldn’t wear it in summer at all unless it was a tremendously windy and cool night.

  6. Thank you so much for this video Shelly !!πŸ€— (hope I spelled your name right). Specifically a great inspiration for a Fall crochet project. Absolutely love the simplicity of shape. Thank you again!!!πŸ˜€

  8. Wow! This idea is a seriously innovative and flattering look for women of all shapes and sizes. Thank you so much for sharing . Your channel has so much interesting, varied content.

  9. Love your clothing ideas! I’ve used a couple of your suggestions and just absolutely love them! Keep β€˜em coming! 😘

  10. I'm going shopping tomorrow for fabric so I can make 2 or 3 of these in different colours! Thank you so much for your inspiring videos, can't wait for the next one!

  11. I’m heading to the fabric store! I love this look; a glam way to hide my problem areas. I can see doing it in a stretchy lace fabric for evening or one with metallic threads. Thank you for spending the $450 and sharing the measurements with us.

  12. Thank you so much for this inspiration 😍 I only recently discovered your channel and you are such a wonderful and positive character πŸ’•

  13. Thank you this was so interesting but I don't know how to sew so I would have to leave it frayed. Love your idea

  14. Yikes. Looks great on a very thin tall person, otherwise think it adds bulk and makes a person look larger. N sort of wearing a blanket poncho thing..your style is beautiful but a thumbs down on this

  15. I love it! I am definitely going to try and make one of these for myself!
    What kind of material is your pink one made of? Thanks again for sharingπŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ‘πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

  16. The pink one is beautiful, it fits you great, but it's too transparent and this transparency makes the outfit look cheap – 20usd and not a cent more. The blue one is a bit short, but the fabric is so much better…

  17. Thank you so much for all the information! I appreciate the time and effort you put into this video. I am going to look at fabric much differently now!

  18. Thanks for the fun and elegant idea. Both garments look fabulous on you.
    I have made similar tops from two long identical scarves with a few stitches here and there. They can also be turned 90Β° so the neckline is a V and the hem is horizontal and sleeves have long flowing tails.

  19. I might try it because it’s gorgeous. I’m so challenged when it comes to sewing. I can only cut. πŸ˜‚

  20. Hiya Schellea
    Thanks for this awesome tip, what a great outfit.
    I wonder if fleece blankets could also be fashioned this way…they would be lovely and cosy.
    With warm wishes from Ally WA πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

  21. Hi gorgeous!!!! This is awesome!!! TFS and I’m going to make one too !!!Its beautiful!!! Hugs and love ❀️xoxo

  22. Your video is wondrful. Can you tell me what the dimensions of the faux swede small tie piece you used. Thanks so much, keep up good work

  23. Thank you so much my dear. All the styles are beautiful in very interesting. β€β€β€β€πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  24. thank you soo much! I'm so happy I found your channel!
    I am almost 59 now and i was blessed with a with a very slim body, even after giving birth to my children. 3 years ago my belly started to grow although the rest of my body nearly stayed as it was before. Like you, I still look younger and feel younger aswell. Your tips and tricks really are wonderful and I can't wait to see all of them and try them out. I signed your channel (and I apologize for my bad English). Love from Germany!

  25. Wonderful. Very feminine. Adds a little warmth on cool mornings/evenings, yet allows for maximum airflow for perimenopausal overheating, and hides any underarm sweating. I love it.

  26. I love this so much but I’m really bad at sewing…..do you know of any lovely pre made ones? I’m in the UK xxx

  27. If you do sew, you could curve the edges. I’m also 5ft 3in, so I love to see your ideas. Awesome video! Thank you.

  28. Brilliant and simple. I love all the blue hues on you, can’t help itπŸ˜‰and turquoise, just 🌟thank you so much

  29. …. I am 5'2", and thank you for this great information…. I've been watching your channel for a while now, and you are just so grounded, real and " a breath of fresh air", amidst some of the other things going on , on You Tube, in regards to fashion and style. I am 64 years young and I've got pretty good style, but I believe that life is a lifelong learning process, and I have no doubt that so many woman appreciate you…!!

  30. Awesome idea! I’m looking for inexpensive ways to accessorize my wardrobe, that would work professionally and casually. And it’s an easy trip to the fabric store for 1.5 yd of knit fabric! Perfect!! Thanks Shellea!

  31. This was a very good video with easy ideas for creating new looks with minimal effort. I love the versatility of it all & will be trying it myself. Thank you again Shellea.

  32. Thank you for showing such a simple way to have something so beautiful. I think the pink one you created was beautiful.
    I haven’t seen you for awhile. Hoping all is well.
