VIDEO: How to make Silk Tops

Post by Diavolos » Wed Jan 30, 2013 9:15 pm

Hey, I just made a small video (not a clear one thought this time :/ ) because a friend of mine asked me how to make silk tops. I just made a video only to show it, I don't plan to use this little piece of work anywhere because the colors used are only to make some contrast

Anyway, I'll make a new video soon, with black hair this time, orange lace and white fabric to add more to the contrast and shoot it with my analogue camera because it has much better low light setting and macro mode.

This is probably not the correct way to make a silk top, this is the only way I know and I am trying to find the right tools to make it faster, because if you see the video the most time consuming part is to get the hair inside the little nylon loop at the end of the needle so as to pull the hair through.

Long story made short : here is the video!

New update on how to make silk tops.

This time I use black fabric, white hair and the huge foundation lace so as to have contrast.

Also this time I use two different ways, one is with the normal stitching needle and the loop in the end, the other one is with an "easy-to-thread" needle so the looping of the hair is done faster.
