I have to be honest with you, I have loved corsages since Patricia Field stuck then all over SJP in “Sex and the City.” It seemed quite fitting to be hosting Digital Fashion Week in Singapore last weekend wearing a corsage flower I made when Patricia had been the guest of honour at last year’s event. Here are some of my favourite moments captured with the flower while working (including interviewing superstar designer Holly Fulton in it and opening the whole live streaming coverage).
Thanks also to Perth (my home town) designer Steph Audino for the orange dress I wore.
So here’s how you can make one of these babies for yourself!
Firstly, You will need: stiff, gauzy fabric (mesh and tulle work well), fabric scissors, pink thread, needles and brooch pin.
Cut circles out of the fabric by folding it in half and cutting semi circles. They don’t have to be perfect. I chose to have mine with a diameter of approximately 12cm.
Continue creating circles until you have 15-20 depending on the volume you desire in the flower.
Fold the circles in half and then quarters irregularly.
Draw the needle and thread through the pointed end to secure.
When all the circles have been drawn onto the thread, tie off.
Sew on your brooch pin.
