Let's get a DIY thread going on here. what you guys/girls been making
i hemmed and frayed some pants, then printed a graphic on them cause i'm obsessed with the hand-print YYPH blazer. opinion/criticisms/discussion welcome
i hemmed the pants on a sewing machine, nipped off a lil bit of the edges and put it in the washing machine. very cash
used friend's sister's screenprinting equipment, i actually just drew the graphic and he cleaned it up on photoshop and printed it on the pants.
okay i've never DIY'd anything before so need some help
i've got the parka in the picture and the outside is a pretty thick waterproofed polyester
is there any way to print text onto this and if so, how do i do it?
Today I've cut a tshirt diagonally into a shape of a scarf,then soaked it in coffee.
1.How should I dry it?
2.Can I put in the laundry or will the color wash off?
I love the idea but why is it pointing up to your crotch? Could've used a slightly more interesting graphic imo but good job anyway. Also personally would've preferred a baloon pant/tapered silhouette +- pleats over frayed but thats just me
made this skirt out of an old blanket. Beven wanting one for a while but didn't want to spend $50 at AA
If it were me I'd try to do 2 layers of spraypaint very carefully stenciled on and then put it in the dryer on low for a bit.
But honestly fabric like that isn't meant for silk-screening, dying, or painting.
Need some help famalam.
I have pic related and I kinda wanna chop the bottom dark grey hem off. I got an XL, when I really shoulda got a L, so I don't need the length, and just feel it would look a lot better without it. I already roll the sleeves up onto my wrists. If I just cut it off with scissors will it look shit? Best way of getting rid of it?
Well if the issue for you is their wideness then you can taper them in a heartbeat, not that I completely endorse that idea, non-skinny jeans are cooler at times. Raw cutting the ends can look great depending on your style, and hemming up will avoid the saggin' over shoes look a lot of people dislike.
i've done this before
10oz denim is a fine weight
12 oz and above is considered workwear denim, and i frankly do not feel comfortable in denim above 10 ounces
the easiest way to go about this is to get an old pair of pants that fits you well, seam rip it (while jotting notes of the construction), and then using the pieces as your pattern for the new pair (make sure to iron them first)
it's been a while but if i can recall correctly, you begin sewing jeans by sewing the front crotches together
remember to always have the fabrics face to face when sewing
the face is easy to recognize in denim
Is there any denim that's really nice quality that you'd recommend. Price isn't an issue and I have all I need for making them i.e workspace, sewing machine, seam ripper fabric scissors etc etc..
well since you're in a position where purchasing at retail is the only real option, i would go onto moodfabrics.com
i don't think many fabrics, if at all, list the weight
i'm sure customer service could easily help with that
Pretty boring but cropped my pants last night.
Considering I never wore these old jeans I'm happy with them.
I deconstructed and tailored this overcoat down a few weeks ago
also I ended up removing and sewing on new buttons
probably one of my favorite fits desu
I actually follow you on IG
Im thinking about doing a raw hem on a pair of raw denim that I have. they are a 36 inseam and I got them tapered but they still dont stack exactly how I want them to. I barely wear the jeans now
it fits well. nice job
