Have you seen Observer‘s article on the new customizable collection from Gucci? Jared Leto looks great in his custom bomber jacket. (Speaking of Jared Leto, I can’t wait to see him in Suicide Squad! But that’s a topic for another day). Gucci has jumped on the DIY train, citing the punk movement as their inspiration. Observer reports that Gucci designer Alessandro Michele sees DIY as a way to “[allow] the clothing you wear to act as an extension of your personality.” I couldn’t agree more! If Gucci’s price tag is a bit high for you (it’s definitely out of my price range), there’s still hope! You can customize your fashion with DIY clothes. Let your personality shine through your unique style when you make or alter clothes yourself. Whether or not you’re a wiz with a needle and thread, you’ll find great no-sew projects and sewing tutorials in this collection of DIY projects.
Just last summer, I started looking up different ways to alter t-shirts because I had some that I loved but just didn’t fit well. I certainly don’t know my way around a sewing machine, but there are so many ways you can alter clothing just by cutting and tying! Thank goodness for no-sew projects. Now I can wear my shirts without looking like I’m wearing a potato sack (the struggles of having zero curves). These 30 projects include altering clothes you have, making clothes from scratch, and creating unique DIY accessories that are 100% you (the constellation earrings are a personal favorite. What a cool idea, right?). Use these projects for inspiration to come up with your own DIY fashion that will be totally original. Whether you spice up some jeans with a bit of lace or sew yourself a pair of totes adorbs shorts, there are so many ways to DIY your clothing.
