QJin: Oh shit, did I press anything? ooo 😮 Both: What’s up q-tees? QWon: Welcome to our 4th episode of ‘DIY Kpop Closet’ and I’m sure you guys know that a few days ago BlackPink released their new music video called ‘As If It’s Your Last’ QJin: Yeah, I remember we kept refreshing our Youtube feed to watch the video and when it was finally uploaded we immediately wrote a comment there hoping that they’d notice but.. (sucks in breath) that thing didn’t go well, obviously QWon: At least we tried QJin: Yeah QWon: So we decided to create a red top that Lisa was wearing as well as the checkered skirt that Rosé was wearing For the top, you’ll need 1 yard of red jersey fabric and half a yard of white jersey fabric QJin: And for the skirt, you’ll need 1 yard of checkered patterned fabric and one zipper and you guys know the drill the final uptake lookbook will be at the end of the video so make sure to stick around with us until the end. And let’s get this video started Both: Chop chop First, measure the narrowest part of your waist and the widest part of your hip and lastly, how long you want your skirt to be starting from the narrowest part of your waist let’s call the measurement a star, heart, and triangle, respectively Next, with the measurement you just measured we’re going to draw a trapezoid shape the width at the top of the trapezoid aka waist is going to be equivalent to star divided by 4 the width at the mid section of the trapezoid aka hip is going to be equivalent to heart divided by 4 By the way, the hip is located at 7 inches down from the waist and the width at the bottom of the trapezoid aka hem is going to be equivalent to heart divided by 4 plus 1 ½ inch and lastly, the length of the trapezoid is going to be equivalent to triangle Next, mark a quarter inch down from the top of the center front and then connect that mark to the top corner of the side line Make sure when you connect the two points the lines are smoothly blended and slightly curved rather than being straight and that is going to be your new waistline for your skirt Next we’re going to create a waistband and to do, first create a 1 ½ inch wide section at the top waist proportion of the skirt then cut the skirt into two separate pieces following the line that we just drew Let’s copy the two pieces on a new sheet of paper so we have both front and back pieces for the waistband and the skirt pattern For the back waistband and skirt draw a half inch of seam allowances accordingly except 1 inch of the hem and cut two on fold for the back waistband and cut one on fold for the back skirt For the front waistband and skirt pattern before we draw the seam allowances we’re going to make the pattern 3/8ths of an inch narrower at the width to do so, cut off 3/8 of an inch at the center front of the skirt and the waistband pattern Once you’re finished, draw half an inch of seam allowances accordingly except 1 inch for the hem and cut four for the waistband and cut two for the skirt pattern Now let’s make the pattern for Lalisa’s top First, trace half of your favorite oversized long sleeved jersey top you’ll need to trace the front and back neckline shoulder, armhole, side seam, and the hem Next, we’re going to make the neckline wider and deeper To do so, first, for the center front neckline go down 3 and a quarter inch for the center back neckline go down half an inch Lastly, for the shoulder move 1 and a quater inch to the right mark all those three points then we’re going to connect the new center front neck to the new shoulder point and the new center back neck to the new shoulder point Then you’ll have a new front and back neckline that looks similar to what you see on the screen Once you’re done, copy the back bodice pattern on a new sheet of paper so that you have a separate copy for both front and back bodice The only difference between the two bodice patterns are their necklines Next, we’re going to create the neck binding and to do so first measure the front and back neckline measurement and let’s call it a star and a heart respectively Next draw a rectangle with width that is equivalent to 1 and a quarter inch and length that is equivalent to the addition of star x 2 and heart x 2 Add a quarter inch seem allowances all around and cut one for the neck binding Moving back to the bodice on the front bodice, mark one inch at the neckline and connect that mark to the end of the armhole where it meets the side seam then cut the line that you just drew so that they are two separate pieces For the front raglan piece add half inch seam allowances all around and cut two For the front bodice add half inch seam allowances all around except one inch for the hem and cut one on fold repeat the exact same steps for the back bodice and add seam allowances accordingly and cut two for the back raglan and one on fold for the back bodice Next, trace half of the sleeve from your favorite oversized tshirt and then add half inch seam allowances all around and cut two on fold for the sleeves Lastly, we’re going to create sleeve cuffs and to do so, first measure the circumference of the widest part of your hand Let’s call the measurement a star
*She says star but we clearly see a heart on screen. From here on I’ll sub it as heart* next let’s draw a rectangle with length that is equivalent to four inches and width that is equivalent to the heart measurement add half an inch of seam allowances all around and cut two for the cuffs You’ll need to draw and cut these shapes on stencil paper for this project An ‘O 8’ and two stripes for the sleeves the word ‘trust’ for the front bodice and the word ‘line’ and another ‘O 8’ for the back bodice Once you have cut out the stencil position them to the pieces you have just cut out and use the fabric paint to paint over the stencil Once it’s all dried up gently remove the stencil from the fabric For the bears mouth, we figured it’s easier to actually draw the shape using a small brush rather than cutting a stencil for it Make sure to repeat the exact same steps for the rest of the stencils on the front and back bodice and the other remaining sleeve sew the style line of the front raglan and front bodice together in half an inch and repeat them for the back bodice as well Next, sew the shoulders of the front and back bodice together in half an inch then grab the neck binding and fold it in half length wise and sew them together in a quarter inch Once you’re finished, fold the neck binding in half and place it on top of the neckline of the bodice and sew all three layers together in a quarter inch Now grab your sleeves and sew the armholes of the bodice and the sleeve together in half inch next lay the back bodice and front bodice with right sides facing together and sew the sides seams and the sleeves underarm together in one continuos line in half an inch Fold the cuff in half width wise and sew them together in half inch then fold the cuff in half in length wise and shove the sleeve through the cuff and sew all three layers together in half an inch Lastly, cleanly finish your hem with a serger or a zigzag stitch and fold the hem in one inch and sew it in place First sew the side seam of the front and back skirt together in half inch seam allowance Then grab the front and back waistband together and place the correct sides facing together and sew the side seams together in half an inch Once you’re done sew the waist of the skirt to the waist of the waistband in half an inch Grab your zipper and sew the zipper to the center front of the skirt Sew the remaining opening at the bottom of the center front in half an inch For the hem, fold it in half inch twice and sew it in place Grab the remaining waistband which is going to as a facing for a clean finish and sew it on the waistband of the skirt in half an inch Next, fold the raw edges of the facing in half an inch and then fold the entire facing towards the wrong side of the skirt and then from the correct side of the waistband stitch in the ditch to keep the facing in place then you’re finished!
