Making Clothing
    #4294171 - 06/14/05 04:35 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I just ripped the shit out of my jeans the other day. I wanted to get a cool print, on cotton or hemp, and sew it as a patch. Grateful dead bears, mushrooms, fractals, whatever, would have been nice. I went to a fabric shop and they had a bunch of lame shit, but I found a section of cloth batik prints that were ok. Bought a yard of one and plan to learn the sewing machine and get busy.

Makes me want to learn how to make my own clothes though. Any one have any useful sites or tips? So far I only know of this one store and the batik prints. I would like to find some nice cotton or linen shirts and sew on some poppy flowers as a design.

who has experience in this. Even info on silkscreening would be bad ass.

just curiouse.

My sister makes a lot of her clothes, and you can't tell the difference between them and store bought stuff.

thats cool. If i were to make cloths the would look sloppy. but meh, whatever. I think im going to just pour some bleach on a dare t-shirt, or maybe spray it with bleach. Then maybe die it. Ill prolly end up tossing it, but it could look alright.

i got to a fashion school. lol. i can silkscreen and junk but that gets expensive. it depends on how many colors u want in the design. im actually starting up a company w/ two other people.

as for making clothes, ur better off doing ur own than going by a guide. that's what i've found. i really am not sure where to direct u b/c anything u find online are going to be dorky instructions on making dresses and crap.

just measure & drap. figure out how u want it to look...

Thanks, and good luck to you and your friends.

I think that for now, im going to just experiment on already made clothes. If I end up enjoying it then I might buy some what ever the hell those spools of fabric are. Some nice cotton or hemp.

Right now Im going to patch my jeans, with no prior sewing knoweldge! It cant be that hard.

I'm currently trying to make a pair of sneakers similar to the blackspot sneaker, but it's turning out to be more involved than I thought.
I never make my own shirts or anything but I've dyed a few using plants and whatnot I found out in the woods. Red clay can make a really nice colored dye along with pretty much anything with color. Boil the plant material for a while until the color seeps out and strain it. Before you soak your shirts in the dye soak the shirt in a solution of salt and vinegar, this will help the shirt hold onto the dyes. The dyes actually last a while if you work them in enough. I've yet to try tie dye this way, but I'm sure they'd sell like crazy in the lot.
