That's awesome you guys appreciated this video. Nancy really took her time practicing and getting this technique down before we filmed. Shoulder pads it seems are a lot easier to make yourself than try to find for retail sale... I was using my handheld camcorder to record the video so quality is as good as I could get.
I've been experimenting adding more multi-media content to reviews and message boards. Here are the YouTube videos, you can watch them right from PR now.

I have looked in the garment district for good shoulder pads, and came up with huge things that are better suited to a man's shoulders than a narrow shouldered woman which I am. It's easy to make shoulder pads and Nancy shows you just how easy it is.
I'm so glad you found this video helpful -- Brian and I had quite a bit of fun filming it. The shoulder pads are 1/2" thick, and they're designed to fit a standard tailored jacket with set in sleeves. And I agree it's much easier to make your own shoulder pads than to try to track them down.
