I know you’re all expecting a How To on sewing in-seam pockets this week, but I’ll have to ask you to please take a rain check until the following week. Instead, I thought I would share a simple and quick project for those of you making jackets and blouses for the fall. Sure, shoulder pads evoke images of female power brokers and yuppies, or Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation album ( I don’t care much for the former, but Janet Jackson is a different story. I spent a lot of my adolescence mimicking her moves and style). Well, “Go Big or Go Home” isn’t the rule here. So try making your own, smaller, shaped shoulder pads by following the simple instructions found in this How To.
