Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Thick velvet chokers have been the epitome of celebrity fashion for the last couple of seasons. However, the mysterious part is nowhere appears to sell any currently. I have decided to take these important fashion matters into my own hands. Let's be real. You know you need a velvet choker. Let's do this!
What you'll need:
I have chosen to use Velcro to piece this choker together, as it can be quite hard to find clamps large enough for the wide faux velvet ribbon. It also makes it a lot cheaper as buying clamps, clasps, jump rings, etc. very expensive when you're making just one necklace.
To begin measure the size of your neck with the measuring tape. Make sure it's not too tight as it will make your choker uncomfortable. Then add 4cm which will be used on each end later. To make sure you cut accurately, use the fabric pencil or a pin to mark where you need to cut.
Fold over 1cm on each end of the ribbon and pin like the photo above on the right. Sew both of these ends to secure them.
Cut one piece of Velcro to the size of the ribbon one centimetre in width. Pin one piece of Velcro to each end of the ribbon. One piece should be pinned to the inside of the ribbon. Flip the ribbon over and pin the second piece to the outside of the opposite end. It's a good idea to check if the necklace will fit together correctly at this point. If it doesn't double check where you have pinned the Velcro. Once you are happy with where you have pinned the Velcro sew it where it has been pinned.
Your fabulous new accessory is complete! Happy styling beautifuls.
