Before I begin I would like to sincerely apologize for randomly dissapearing for a month. I’ve experienced ghosting before and therefore know how annoying and hurtful that can be. I went ghost due to a lack of organization on my behalf due to the incorporation of two other obligations into my schedule. Now that I have finally figured out how to balance them with creolethrifting.com I will resume weekly uploads on this platform every Wednesday! So now without further ado let’s get to the article!
So you know those “cheap” diys for pretty items? The instructions claim the materials only cost like ten dollars but then the items needed to actually do it cost like 50 and are difficult to find.
I’m talking to you double sided tape!
The final straw is when the tutorial says that it will only take fifteen minutes but it ends up taking five hours and you end up with this:
So in this realistic DIY that is not the case. It actually costs 5 dollars and requires the use of regular household items that the typical person has.
The end result is a beautiful bow-like lingerie piece:
Do not fret if your first go looks a bit closer to this
I actually like this more, its giving me:
“Yeah ah ha, you know what it is
Everything I do, I do it big
Yeah ah ha, screaming that’s stuff
When I pulled out of the lot, that’s stuff
Step up in my town when you see me you know everything
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow”
Point is you’re (maybe) not a seamstress and may need to finagle your creation or use some tape. However you choose to do it I’m sure it will turn out great.
Bow Lingerie DIY
4 hoop earrings
1 pair of scissors
1 bundle of 5 inch wide ribbon (I found mine at my Goodwill)
1 bundle of gift wrap paper for measuring, unless you have actual measuring tape, that works, too, I guess
Step 1: Using your gift wrap measure your torso; do this by holding the gift wrap vertically starting at your waist and then marking on the white part of the paper were the top of your head stops.
Step 2: Using this measurement multiply it by 3 and that is how much ribbon you will need to cut off for your body piece. Your shoulder strap will be about 1/3rd of the original measurement.
Step 3: Using two of the hoop earrings fasten both ends of the strap piece onto the body piece, fasten the bonds 1/3rd of the way on the ribbon reserved for the body.
Step 4: Tie your ribbon into a “naughty knot” around you. A video detailing how to this is outlined below.
You’re now complete! Rock your lovely Bow lingerie as a sexy gift for your significant other. Have them open it.
