Two great videos showing how to make your own shoulder pads. Recognize the "stars"?

Part 1

Part 2

I love how Nancy takes the time to explain all the steps in clear detail.

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.

Just wondering about the finished size. Are they 1/2", 3/4", 1"? I watched the videos and printed off the templates and plan on making these. Thank you very much for all your hard work!

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.

Here's the tip on the same topic.
