Stitch Your Own Suspenders!

DIY SuspendersLove the look of suspenders on your guy? This project is super easy and makes a great gift! Enjoy…

Suspenders stepsTips: To measure them on your mister, cut elastic into two separate strips. Have him hold them in front at his belt line where he would clip them, take the other two ends over his shoulder. Criss cross them and stretch it to his belt line on the back. You'll want them to be slightly stretched but not too tight so that he can move comfortably. Once you've found the correct length, cut off the excess! 

1. Supplies: 3 yards of elastic (ours was 1 inch wide), suspender clips, sewing machine. 2. Once you've made the correct measurements, simply attach the clips by putting the elastic through the hook so that the front of the clip isn't on the same side as the end of elastic. Sew a straight line across the layers of elastic to secure the hook. Once you have clips on all four ends, you're ready to to sew them together! 3. Layer them in an X form with back ends having about 5 inches of elastic. You'll want the X to be longer in height than in width so that the suspenders aren't too wide. Think of it as it could fit into the corners of a rectangle verses a square. Once it's layered correctly, sew it together by topstitching a diamond shape through both layers.Suspenders 2Suspenders 3Have a great day! Kinsey

  • Via OnceWed (I don’t know why I subscribe to a widdeng blog, okay? It shows beautiful photography. BEAUTIFUL! And lovely, happy American people with very white teeth. I just like it. Stop hassling me!) comes this beautiful shoot, by Brandon Patoc, of a young couple in vintage styleeeee. While I feel like vintage widdeng photographs are often a little contrived, and might be a little, um, posey, for a bona fide widdeng, this shoot is so beautiful. You can check out the full spread on Yuri Manchik’s blog.

  • this is genius! why haven’t i made a pair yet?

  • Very handsome looking, but it always cracks me up when a man wears suspenders AND a belt! I guess better safe than caught with your pants down, eh?

  • I used your tutorial for my son’s Valentine’s Day outfit, and they turned out so great!!

    Thank you girls for always posting these unique but easy tutorials 🙂

  • What a handsome fellow? Kinsey, is he yours? You’re a lucky lady. I love this idea and want to steal it for my man and me, too!

  • Great idea! Made me giggle though, as suspenders are a VERY different thing here in the UK, and most girls probably wouldn’t be too keen on their man wearing them, haha!! 😉

  • Awesome. My guy’s been needed new suspenders and for some reason it didn’t even occur to me that I could make them.

  • Oh wow, love them! When I first read the post title I thought they something else (in England suspenders are what ladies wear to keep their stockings up). Great DIY. Thanks.

  • When I saw this tutorial, I thought of the suspenders I’ve been meaning to get but I didn’t know where to begin. But with this I just need to get the supplies.
