“I don’t have anything to wear!” The chorus rings out from (mainly) women standing before their closet’s across the western world.
It is a first world problem for sure, standing in front of racks full of clothes with zero inspiration – yet we also know that the fast-fashion industry is causing massive global issues and who has money to waste on buying even more than we already do?
So today, we are going to look at how we can create our own stylish clothes at home – and even better, how to fall back in love with some of our forgotten clothes that may just need a facelift!
Making your own clothes and accessories may sound like a very daunting task, but it can actually be pretty easy once you know how.
Let’s start with a few sewing tips for newbies before you dive in.
Before you read on, go and have a look at this…..
Fabric can be a magician as you can see with this Bina. You can create 12 drop dead gorgeous looks with just one piece of fabric. You can do this easily yourself, the secret to this is that the fabric should be lightweight and also a type of stretch material. You need to ensure that your fabric is 4 times your hip width, sewing a hem is optional. Then sew press-studs on every corner and you are good to go. You can create anything from a cardigan to a scarf or even a blouse. Just think about how light you will be able to pack!
