Im also going to start making my own clothes. In fact Im sitting down with a pen in hand and sketching a few designs. Im cheating a bit by taking huge "inspiration" from some catwalk designs that I like before I start really designing my own clothes.
I love a lot of designer clothes but they are so far out of my budget. I hope to make my own versions of these designs but for a fraction of the price.
It is my mother that is encouraging me to make my own clothes. When we shop together she says its ridiculous how much shops charge for clothing that is so easy and cheap to make. She is going to help me innitially.
I need help with sewing and cutting techniques but a lot of it I will make up as I go along. Fabric is so cheap that it doesnt matter so much if it doesnt go perfectly straight way.
Ive borrowed my aunts sewing machine and Im just waiting until the weekend for my mum to sit down with me and show me how to use it. Im going to start very simply by resizing an old tshirt.
I hope to start making dresses and other clothes from scratch soon. If it goes well [fingers crossed] Ill share some photos of my stuff here.
