  • Simple DIY Suspenders Tutorial

    February 24, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    A simple way to make suspenders with seven items, in only eight easy steps.

    What You Will Need

    1. Elastic
    (no wider than 1")


    2. 4 Straight Pins


    3. Needle and Thread


    4. One 1" Metal Back Patch


    5. 1 Garment Tape Measure


    6. Scissors


    7. Four 1" Grips With Brackets

    STEP 1: With the tape measure, measure from 1 inch below your left front pant loop, bring the tape measure over your left shoulder and down to 1 inch below and to the right of your center pant loop, or 1 inch below your right back pant loop. This is the length of elastic you will need. Be sure to cut 2 strips of the elastic in this length.


    STEP 2: With the scissors, cut 2 straps from the elastic in the length you measured in step 1.


    STEP 3: Use the straight pins to pin a horizontal line to hold the elastic end around the grip, making sure that when the grips are clipped onto your

    pants, the elastic is snug but comfortable.


    STEP 4: Hand sew the end of the elastic so that it's around one of the grip ends. (This will be the back right end)

    STEP 5: Take the end of the elastic that is not yet sewn, and put it through the metal back patch, so that the point of the triangle is facing up.


    STEP 6: Sew the unfinished side so that it's around a second grip end.


    STEP 7: Take the second strap of elastic and repeat steps 3-5, making sure both straps of elastic form an overlapping X.


    STEP 8: Trim off most of the excess elastic that remains, clip on all 4 grips.

    Sue Manuel who is a loyal Britex Fabrics customer stopped in looking for some fabric for a new creation that her dress maker back in Canberra, Australia will be making for her. Our staff immediately noticed the fabulous jacket she was wearing was crafted from our French wool, silk lining, and shiny buttons. Her jacket was designed and made by Gloria Grady, her dress maker in Australia.
