DIY LAST MINUTE 70S HALLOWEEN COSTUME THRIFT FLIP | DIY BELL BOTTOM JEANS | Jeanae Melisa

What's up guys it's your girl Jeanae Melisa serving you 70's vibes yes ye. So today,I'm going to be showing you guys how I made these bell-bottom jeans out of a,pair of skinny jeans. Let's get started! Alright so first things first I'm taking,my skinny jeans and I turned them inside out and then I'm taking some scissors,and I'm cutting right up the sides of each pant leg and I ended up cutting,both sides open I don't know why I only showed just one side I don't know but,then I'm taking my measuring tape just to see how long that cut is. I,think I cut mine about 16 inches I just did it up to the end of my knee and then,I'm taking the extra Jean material that I have and I'm cutting the same amount,so 16 inches and this is gonna be the insert for the bell-bottoms.,And I am gonna cut both of those pants legs in half like I'm doing right here,because you're going to need four pieces so yeah.,And then I'm gonna take those cut outs, those jean cutouts and I'm just gonna,make like the sure that the tip of it is kind of like in a triangular shape just,so it's easier for me to sew it on to my skinny jeans. So I did that for all four,of the inserts.,Okay so now I'm taking pins and I'm just pinning the blue-jean insert onto these,skinny jeans and I am gonna do this on both sides of the pant legs and on both,pant legs. So you should have four inserts, four cuts, one on each side of,the pants and then you're going to sew them onto the jeans.,Thank you guys so much for watching this video if you liked it make sure to give,it a big thumbs up and also don't forget to hit that subscribe button if you're,not subscribed already and while you're at it turn on those post notifications,such and notified every time I upload a new video and I'll see you guys in the,next one!

70s Inspired Vintage & Retro Outfit Ideas (+ Lookbook)

70s Inspired Vintage & Retro Outfit Ideas (+ Lookbook)

Hello everyone my name is Khatia and by far one of  my favorite decades for fashion inspiration has  ,to be the 1970s. I love bell bottoms, floral  prints, chunky platforms you name it, the  ,trends in the 70s were just top notch! Some standout  styles I've taken inspiration from today  ,include the bohemian/prairie look the old  Hollywood deco revival and the Americana slash  ,denim trend but I'll go into more detail as I go  through each outfit make sure to let me know in  ,the comments if you want me to make a video on any  other decade but without further ado, let's begin  ,for the first look I based my outfit around this  vintage red striped wide lapel shirt. Stripes  ,were big in the 70s and I feel like vertical  stripes in particular have more of a vintage feel  ,especially in combination with a pointed collar  you'd normally pair this type of top with a  ,pantsuit but I opted for a red corduroy skirt  to match instead while go-go boots were more of  ,a 60s trend they did stick around for a couple  of years so I wore these white knee-high boots  ,with my outfit and I tied in the reds and whites  of the look with a striped hair ribbon the 70s  ,were all about large, gaudy jewelry so I went with  these hoops, a gold chain and a rainbow gem ring,the second look is more inspired by the peasant /bohemian trend and it's essentially what I,would wear to a music festival if i was around in  the 70s. I based the look around these multi-color  ,paisley flare pants textiles like this, that mixed  various colors and patterns were very prevalent  ,in the 70s. On top, I wore an ochre blouse with  bell sleeves to match the flare of the pants  ,for accessories, I went with this handmade  pendant in chevron which was another trendy  ,pattern at the time this necklace, the  blue gem ring and burgundy Toms tie  ,in with the colors and patterns of the  pants very well. I also wrapped the satin  ,scarf straight around my head I feel like  this way goes well with my bangs but head  ,wraps and headscarves in general were  a hallmark of the 1970s bohemian trend,Denim might have been the most popular fabric  of the 70s, apart from polyester, and more women  ,started to incorporate pants into their wardrobes  as the second wave of feminism and the Women's,Liberation Movement started to gain more traction So for the third look I went with these classic  ,blue denim flares and I paired them with a  vertical striped poop sleeve cropped blouse  ,but the accessories are what really bring it  home, I wore some platform cork heel sandals  ,platforms in general were huge in the  70s but this particular strappy style  ,was a go-to both in high fashion and as casual  wear. I also wore this gold circle chain belt  ,with some yellow aviators oversized glasses  were another 60s trend that bled into the 70s  ,and finally, I added a multi-color ascot and  a rainbow gem gold ring to match the colors  ,in the top. Ascots were another clever way  people chose to wear scarves in the 70s  ,The next look takes inspiration both from the  bohemian and Victorian revival trend that also  ,took place in the 70s. I kind of feel like we're  seeing another Victorian revival trend because  ,of the modernization of corset wear along  with cottagecore becoming more mainstream  ,so I wore this more modern beige empire  waist maxi dress with a pink floral print  ,it has peasant sleeves and a maxi silhouette  which were two essentials in the bohemian trend  ,there was also a bit of an Old Hollywood glamour  1940s style revival at the time so furs, especially  ,in the shape of coats were reintroduced into the  fashion scene which is why I chose to add this  ,white fur vest on top of my dress as well once  again I wore that gold chain belt but this time  ,as a headdress and I added those same white knee  high boots to complete the look ,For the following look, I went back to the denim flares but this time I paired them with a multicolored vintage blouse  ,this one has shoulder pads, which was a trend  that nodded once again to the 1940s when women  ,started to wear more masculine silhouettes as a  response to the laxation of gender roles caused  ,by World War II. I added another ribbon to my  head but this time in a green floral print  ,and these green circle frames to match  These tan leather sandals have a peep toe  ,tying in with a strappy sandal trend along  with the neutral color palette that was  ,prominent at the time. Finally I added an evil  eye necklace to match the gold in the blouse,If you're curious about fashion history and  design then you can look to Skillshare who  ,has kindly sponsored today's video if you're not  familiar with Skillshare, it is an online learning  ,community with thousands of inspiring classes  for creative and curious people like you they  ,have classes on illustration, music creation,  videography and so much more! I took a class  ,on Skillshare called "Digital Illustration  Streamlining with Adobe Tools" by Jing Wei  ,I do have familiarity with Adobe programs but  in this particular class I was able to see how  ,Adobe Illustrator fits into the context of digital  Illustration as opposed to graphic design which is  ,usually what I use it for and I actually found  it to be much easier than I expected, especially  ,after hearing the artist explain their process in  vivid detail.

turn any skinny jeans into 70s flares + sun & moon painting - relaxing diy

turn any skinny jeans into 70s flares + sun & moon painting - relaxing diy

Hello, my lovely friends!,Want to turn some old jeans into awesome flares?,Let's do it then!,My mom and sister love painting by numbers so we have a lot of leftover paint,And I think it is a great opportunity to use some of it,I made a sketch of what I want to paint on the legs,First outlining it with fabric chalk, just simple shapes,The field just started blooming!,Now it's time to paint,Last time taught me that it is always a good idea to make a white base layer first ,So here we are,First layer is always the hardest to paint on fabric,And don't worry if it comes out patchy, second layer will cover it all,My body definitely didn't thank me later for painting in this position :D,First layer is thankfully done!,For second layer I pick all the different shades of yellow,It will be the base color layer,Painting goes much more smoothly with white underneath ,Adding different shades makes it more interesting,For the moon I picked more muted and cool tones,Just to make them look a little bit different,Now let's add some fun color,I picked red for the sun and purple for the moon,Add them wherever you feel like and as much as you feel like,And I totally forgot to film how I do the same with the moon :D,And now it's time to sketch the faces and other lines,A little bit of brown paint goes a long way,Finishing the lines,It is always my favorite to be out in nature and do things I love,I dream about my own house so I can spend all day every day outside enjoying nature,But now it's time to get back to my apartment :),Painting turned out lovely!,Now lets turn them into awesome flares,Unpick the both sides of the legs till about the knee point,This angle looks like I am doing it in a dangerous way, but don't worry, I was completely safe,Make sure to watch a proper tutorial for seam ripping, this tool is very sharp!,My fingers always stay off the way :),I cut my finger ones with the knife so now I am always extra careful,This is how it should look,Now we need to add fabric to these places,If you pick fabric thinner than the jeans I would recommend either interface it or put it over the jeans fabric harvested from another pair,Decide what size of flare you want (i went bigger than that :D),My fabric was pretty thick so just a layer of interfacing was good,You don't have to do it tho, feel free to experiment:),Here I am marking the triangles on the fabric,When cutting don't forget to add the seam allowance ,Cut out 4 triangles. I made two a bit bigger because I thought my first one wasn't big enough ,I placed the bigger ones on the outer sides of the legs,It turned out looking pretty good, but you can make them even. It was just me working around my mistake,But there are no mistakes, only happy accidents :D,Can I be Bob Ross of sewing?,There are no mistakes, only design choices! :D,Jokes aside, I actually believe that. Just relax and make the most of what you have,You can work around any mistake you make,Trust me, I make them all the time!,It is your piece of closing, your piece of expression. Nobody will notice anything wrong,To prove that I can say - you never notice mine ;P haha,Here are the triangles,Pin them to the slits you made,Here how it should look on the jeans, triangles are a bit longer cause we need to hem them,Sewing all the sides in place,The easiest way to hem for me is to iron it in place first,Ironing the first fold,And the second fold,Steam helps sometimes,And the last but not least, sewing hem in place,Yay, we are finally done!,It was a nice quick project, wasn't it?,I swear I felt like I came out of Mamma Mia movie!,This is my favorite outfit now,Don't be tricked by the sun, it will go away soon :D,Stay tuned for the next video where I turn my old broken boots into a fringe jacket :D,Thank you all so much for watching! ,Now go create yourself:),This shot is here purely because I am obsessed with my look,I couldn't not stare at the camera for more than a second so it was't usable for video,But I like it anyway, I don't want it go to waste,Okay bye! <3

Last minute Halloween tutorial || Hippie

Last minute Halloween tutorial || Hippie

hi guys and welcome back to my channel,today's look is going to be my first,Halloween tutorial and if you're,anything like me you probably wait until,the last second to come up with,something to do for Halloween I'm queen,of finding costumes that already exists,in my own closet so because of that,today's look is going to be how to do a,last-minute hippie costume so I'm going,to show you some makeup looks that you,can do that are super simple the only,things that you need for this look are a,black eye liner mascara a headband and a,tie-dye shirt that's really the basics,of this look and I'll show you how to,take those items and kind of transform,them into something that can definitely,pass for a fun costume so this looks,really fun for parties to take to school,to do whatever where trick-or-treating,no judgement if you're twenty-something,and trick-or-treating you know we all,have our things but anyway I really hope,that you enjoy this look please let me,know in the comments below if there are,any other specific Halloween looks that,you would like me to try I have two,other ones that I'm thinking of but I,would be more than happy to try some,more so let me know in the comments,below and as always if you like this,video please give it a thumbs up and,consider subscribing to my channel to,see who I just like I had something in,my throat sorry to see more videos that,are popping up of my channel I'm coming,out with new ones all the time so,without further adieu please stay tuned,for this hippy Halloween look,I'm gonna start out using a matte shade,I'm just taking a really big blending,brush this is just to lay down a kind of,flawless surface for the eyeliner that,we're gonna put on like it like I said,well I can't talk today like I said it,doesn't really matter what matte shade,or what nude shade rather I'm just so,long that it's matte so I'm just gonna,brush this all over the lid and a little,bit higher because the eyeliner luck,that we're gonna do is going to be a,little bit above where normal eyeliner,would be so just brush that on make sure,it kind of covers up any redness or any,like veins or anything on your on your,eyelids easy peasy all right so the main,star of this look is going to be a black,liquid eyeliner this one is the Urban,Decay 24/7 waterproof liquid eyeliner I,don't know why I thought this had like a,fancy name it doesn't this is my,absolute favorite one it's a little,pricey so if you're looking for,something drugstore this is not it so we,are going to kind of try and replicate,the iconic Twiggy look from the 60s,that's what I was kind of going for,because when I think of well it's kind,of like mod but when I think of a hippie,look I think of that iconic like lower,lash look that we're gonna try and,replicate and I think that it just goes,well with the rest of the costume so I,don't know if it's exactly time timeline,appropriate but you know what it's,Halloween like I don't think anybody's,gonna be raging on you about your,history could be wrong maybe I don't go,to the same kind of Halloween parties,that you do anyway so to start off the,eye liner look you're gonna find its,easiest if you look in the mirror to do,this obviously you're gonna find your,crease so wherever when you have your,eye open and you're looking straight,ahead wherever your eye crease is we're,gonna try to trace that line with the,liquid eyeliner leave the eye closed for,a couple of seconds after you do the,look so that it has time to dry before,you open your eyes,doesn't smudge all over your whatever,that skin is called lower eyebrow upper,eyelid I don't know I'm really not on my,filming game today so you'll have to,excuse me anyway,let's get started with the eyeliner I've,talked for 20 minutes about how to put,it on,so let's actually do it so I totally,failed the first time I tried to do this,so if it takes you more than one try,don't lose heart because it's actually a,little bit harder than I thought that it,would be try not to rush it,you're sitting at home thinking wow this,looks like a hot mess you're not alone,because I'm also thinking that but I'm,gonna wing this out and then I'm going,to run and go get a q-tip and clean this,up a little bit what you can always do,by the way really easy just take a,little bit of makeup remover on a q-tip,now you don't have to ruin your whole,look I'm gonna take this line though and,wing it out a little bit at the edge,just like hey and then I'm going to line,the lower lash line just like I normally,would you're not winging out though,leave it right to the end of the lash,line so once you feel satisfied with the,eyeliner look on the upper lash line,I have to apologize this look is,definitely a little bit more challenging,than I anticipated so like I said take,your time and if it takes you a couple,of tries that's what makeup remover is,for so for the lower lash line we are,going to emulate like I said before,we're gonna emulate that iconic picture,of Twiggy her trademark look was these,crazy lower lashes that were kind of,painted in with eyeliner so that is what,we are going to try and do right now,again take your time don't poke yourself,in the eye nobody wants that I'm just,gonna do a series of short little lines,kind of to look like like bottom lashes,just longer,so once you have that painted on it,might look a little scary right now but,we are going to put on loads of mascara,especially concentrating them on them,especially concentrating the mascara on,your bottom lash line okay so once you,have the eyes done we are going to do,one more fun little thing on the face,and that is to take this is one of the,NYX jumbo eye pencils you can use an eye,liner you can use a crayola marker you,can use really anything that you want,I'm just gonna draw a little peace sign,on my cheek and then I'm gonna zoom out,so that I can show you what we're doing,with the rest of the look all right so,to get our hippie hair the first thing,that I'm gonna do is put my hair in a,middle part which looks super weird if,you never do your hair in the middle,part like I probably the last night at a,middle part was when I was in maybe,fifth grade so I think it looks super,weird on my face or on my head but um,separate your hair into a middle part,the best that you can,hello okay and then we are going to take,hair from each side and create two,little braids to meet back in the middle,so what am I looking for,oh my little elastics I recommend,getting these little clear elastics the,little black ones work too but the clear,ones are better because you can't see,them but I'm gonna take hair from this,side you're not gonna do a French braid,this is just gonna be a normal a normal,braid that will just reach around to the,back,so before we have these meet in the back,we're going to take our headband I have,one that's kind of Flowery because I,thought it was appropriate for the look,I'm pretty sure it came from forever 21,so it was probably only like two or,three dollars also I mean costume shops,you could find them pretty much anywhere,but anyway so I am going to try and have,it go across my head like that you can,kind of play around with it to see where,you want it but then I'm going to pull,the braids out so that they are not,underneath it gently because otherwise,that really hurts oh hello okay so now,that you look kind of like a weird space,creature um you're gonna take one more,clear elastic and have the braids meet,together in the back to kind of conceal,a little bit of the back of the headband,once you have that elastic in that is,sealing them you can take the other two,out that are at the end of them right,now or you can leave them in that's,completely up to you I'm probably gonna,take them out just because I think it,looks better,so yeah just gently have them meet in,the back and then you can kind of play,around with it you can stretch stretch,the braids out a little bit if you want,to make sure your hair is kind of laying,flat the real question is is this a,hippie Halloween costume or a look,someone wore to Coachella that's the,real question here yeah that is what I,would do for the hair then we have one,more final piece to put on for our,costume and that is our tie-dye shirt so,I'm going to put that on and then the,last thing that you can do if you have,any I have some little peace sign,accessories if you have any,necklaces or earrings or anything like,that feel free to add them they just,give your local little bit of something,extra that's what I'm saying every year,that I went as a hippie I never had to,buy anything because my closet is just I,hippie closet,yes so that is the finished look it was,pretty easy a nice go to hippie look if,you have a party coming up and you,really don't feel like spending money on,anything or you don't have a lot of time,although leave time for the makeup,because as we found out that actually,takes a little bit extra a little extra,time words coming out of my mouth don't,make sense takes a little bit of extra,time because it was a little bit more,difficult than I originally thought,please give this video a thumbs up and,subscribe to my channel if you'd like to,see more and I hope that you all have a,wonderful day and a very happy Halloween,bye

shop,and i got this fabric this fabric really,um screams 70s for me it's a suit set i,think so this is like,shirt a button-up shirt with a matching,skirt,both of these together came to three,pounds by the way,anyway so i have more than enough,material here to make into a top,so yeah i think we should just get,started okay so,i'm going to start off with the top here,i'm going to lay it out flat,on the ground and because i'm making the,top anyway i'm just going to keep,the top basically how it is i'm just,going to crop it,maybe adjust the neckline somehow but,i'll see when i get to that stage i,don't know what i'm going to do,with that yet but i'm definitely going,to crop it so to know,how far i'm going to crop it because i,don't want to obviously overcrop it,or not crop it enough so it's still,too long i'm going to take a different,top which i know,the crop is a nice length i'm going to,lay that straight on top,and here you can see where i should make,the marks to crop the,top so i'm actually going to use an,eyeliner for this,you can obviously use chalk or a pen of,some sort but i feel like,the waxiness of an eyeliner transfers,better onto fabric that's just my,personal preference obviously you can,use,chalk or whatever you would like to so,i'm going to mark out,the line where this top stops,however i'm going to leave like two,centimeters of room,just for hemming obviously because you,don't want to,cut it to this length and hem it and,then it'll be too short,so i'm just going to leave a little bit,of extra material,you probably can't really see on camera,but once you have your mark in here,you're going to take your scissors and,you're going to,trim the excess material off,like so i just tried the top on to make,sure that,the crop was a good length and it's fine,and while i was still wearing it i,decided i wanted to make the neckline a,more of a v,a deep v-neck so i folded the excess,pieces underneath and i pinned it all in,place,when it's sewn it will look like this,but before we get sewing i just want to,sort the sleeves out and this is where,the excess fabric comes into place,i'm also not going to lie i really don't,know what i'm doing,i have never made massive like bell,sleeves before so um,i am really just going with the flow and,if it turns out all right then it turns,out,right so as you can see these arms are,not they're not bell-like at all they're,just like shirt,sleeves so with that i'm going to cut,along the seam which is underneath the,arm just to open it up,okay like so what i'm going to do is i'm,going to make the rest of the bell,sleeve of this fabric,and eventually attach it to this,which will make the massive arm okay so,now i'm going to grab,this fabric this is actually the skirt,that goes with,the blazer thinking about it i actually,might use this,waistband for the bottom of the,top i might do that so just in case i,use this,i'm just going to um cut off this,waistband,okay just gonna put this in size just in,case i use it with the skirt,i'm going to actually open it up so it's,one,massive piece of fabric i'm just going,to cut down this main,seam so now i have one massive,bit of fabric i'm actually just going to,take the,top again and i want to measure the arm,length,right so this is the length that we're,after so i'm going to take the bottom of,the skirt and connect it to,the end of the arm just because it's,already hemmed and it's neater,the arm stops,here so without going to mark the point,that it stops on my sleeve fabric,right so this piece of fabric is a,little bit too big to put,in the entire frame but all i've done so,i know where the middle of the,entire fabric is and i've just folded it,both sides to that half so that means,i've got equal amount of,fabric on this side and this side where,the fabric meets here i'm just,going to cut down so you're left with,two,separate sleeves,cool so here's one and here's the other,one right so now you need to,with pins attached um what am i,attaching,hold on i need to figure out what i'm,doing okay right i've got it,i've got it it's fine it's fine i've got,it so,what needs to happen oh we need to cut,it down,jesus christ am i losing my marbles,this side lined up with this side,i'm gonna follow it down to where uh the,underneath of the sleeve,finishes mark that on my new fabric just,so i know where to cut,down so this is all the fabric that i,need from the arm,i'm just going to cut off this excess,fabric okay,um again i've said so many times already,i don't know what i'm doing i'm actually,going to,just connect the seams together,just at the ends so this side goes with,this side i'm gonna put a few pins,in here just to hold it in place so as,you can see here,this is the massive sleeve,right got it i understand what i have to,do,so as you can see you don't want a,massive square sleeve we want it to be,diagonal like this so all you have to do,is lay it out flat like this and cut,diagonally then with my pencil i'm just,going to mark,where i want to cut,right and then all you have to do i,think,is sew this and then attach it onto here,so i'm just going to pin it all together,but make sure you put,right sides together so you don't see,any seams,from the outside while you're wearing it,right so it's going to be,like this i don't know if this is going,to turn out,great to be honest it is what it is,though,because it's inside out you can see all,the seams but from,the other side you won't be able to see,any of it,it's absolutely fine so i think it's i,think this is it i think this is how,it's going to be,i'm going to stitch along here and i'm,going to stitch along here,and switch along there so i'm going to,the other arm,and yeah wish me luck,is it this is how the top turned,out i know it was a little bit of a jump,cut from the last clip to,this clip but all i did was took the,waistband from,the top of the skirt and i attached it,on to the bottom,so now it like stretches kind of at the,bottom,uh but yeah this is what it looks like i,feel like a bird like i can just fly,away,to be honest i quite like it i think,it's quite successful then the only,thing is i've moved her hair in the way,the wing,thing here kind of stops here and it's,not the top of my arm the top,arm is like here so i'd rather it like,come like,further into my arm instead of it,stopping right there but,i mean it's not the underworld and it's,also quite low-cut,so i have to wear something underneath,because if i don't then it will be very,dangerous,if i wanted to have it not so plunge i,can easily just stitch that up there but,i kind of like it like this i kind of,like it so this is what the front looks,like,this is what the back looks like,i feel great i feel so bloody seven twos,i,love it see i did the makeup for the,occasion as well and the hair so yeah,this is what it looks like,i hope you enjoyed this video don't,forget to like comment and subscribe,and i'll see you guys in the next
