Unique Clothing Style
Looking for a unique
clothing style? Don't want to spend a lot of
money? Do it Yourself Clothing may be just the
thing for you!
No longer do you have to own
a sewing machine, understand how to choose and
fit a pattern, or even know how to sew in order
to create your own uniquely-different way of
dressing on a budget. It's easy. It's been done
for centuries. And, what's more, you can do it
I'm going to suggest several
ways that you can create "Do It Yourself
Clothing". With a bit of imagination and the
desire to create your own style, you will soon
be able to discover many potential clothing
products in your own community.
Visit your local antique
stores and even the thrift stores with an eye
for fashions from previous generations. Look
for quality, style, and serviceability.
Remember that "wash and wear" is a fairly new
term. Fabrics from the past frequently require
While there, jog on over to
the "linens area". You'll find a variety of
gorgeous tablecloths, doilies, and, depending
on your age, things you've never heard of.
Now what are you going to do
with all of this? Think of new uses, new
combinations, and up-to-the-minute fashion
statements that you can create yourself. A hand
embroidered clothes-pin bag can be transformed
into a delightful purse while a chenille robe
can become a fashionable coat.
Pioneers, cowboys, and
native Americans had no choice but to create
their own clothing. You have a choice but a
rustic clothing design may be just your style.
Old demin jeans have a variety of uses. Combine
with a brightly colored sash and a plaid shirt
and you have a new look. They can be cut into
squares and hand stitched together with
brightly colored yarn to create an exciting
vest, purse, or even a skirt. Imagine all the
ways you can use an old burlap sack to create a
style just for you.
Fabric Store Specials
Take your imagination to your local fabric
store or Walmart. Look at the bargain and
closeout tables. A yard of lacey fabric or
velvet makes a beautiful stole. And don't
forget to eye the upholstery and tablecloth
fabrics. The printed plastic tablecloth fabrics
have a flannel backing and can be cut without
any fear of raveling on the edges.
These are just a few ideas
to get your imagination off the starting line
and running down the field to a Do It Yourself
Clothing Style that is yours alone!
