Keeping up with the latest fashion trends can be tough. Many of us spend hundreds in the hopes of creating a brand new look only to find we’re already two seasons behind. What if we don’t want to waste our time anymore? That’s when it’s time to look for the best DIY clothes you can make at home.
A new tank
Many of us have an old t-shirt or two lying around the house. If you want to give yours a brand new style makeover, then look no further. All you need to do is cut off the collar and the sleeves leaving two larger holes for the arms. Then, merely gather up the back of the shirt in the center and tie it with a spare piece of fabric. Voila! You now have your very own open-backed tank top giving your t-shirt a new lease of life.
A fringe dress
Buying the perfect fringe item can be tough. Sometimes, there is never enough of the additions to keep us happy while others there is so much that we look as though we should be an extra in The Searchers. Why settle for anything less than perfect when you can craft your own? All you need is a plain dress and some matching colored fringe. Merely glue on the desired amount of fringe to the material, and you’ll be ready to rock in no time.
A poncho jacket
Never has an accessory been so simple to craft. All you need is a large rectangle of material, such as faux leather, velvet, or suede fabric. Then, measure where your arms will require to go and cut two matching holes. Yes, it really is that simple. You can go one step further and add a button to the front of the jacket if you want to add a spin, or get snipping and create hundreds of alternatives. The choice is yours.
Oh, yes. Ripped jeans have become one of the biggest fashion trends of the decades as designers realized we will now willingly by clothes with holes. It’s genius. If you have a pair of jeans that have seen better days then why not create your own pair? Start by marking out an area on the denim. Then, make a small cut and begin to pull the blue threads from the fabric until you are left with only the white cotton.
It seems as though those old t-shirts have plenty of uses. If you can’t bear to part with an old top but need a new way to wear the item, then it could be time to break out the scissors. Start by cutting off the sleeves and collar of the garment. Finish by sewing in a piece of elastic around the top of your new skirt, and you’re ready to take your creation to the streets.
Getting a new wardrobe doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, the best DIY clothes you can make at home give us a chance to put our own spin on our new threads.
