already posted in the skirt thread
I made this myself. It is a multi pleated shorts - front and back - that gives the impression of a skirt. Designed the pattern etc. Also made some other stuff.
also made a poncho for ma gf. pic related
yes I am a man > see hairy legs
right now also working on a pair of modified pod shorts. Will post pictures shortly but I'm mid construction so don't expect anything great.
I didn't add any lining because I wanted it to be as light as possible and the wool fabric already feels great, though I have to say that nowadays I'm a little more experienced and probably would add lining. But the seams are all neat and tidy. No repairs yet.
Yes. It's thick cotton felt and pleather
well the video i posted covers a lot of sewing techniques and there are more videos from that channel
i used to help my grandma to do patterns by drawing what you want to make in a sheet of paper then imagining the panels of the garment and drawing the lenght lines like a real pattern
please excuse photo quality only have my phone atm
I might try to DIY something to make this kind of pattern in the future.
Would need some sort of fabric paint, would depend on the material too.
I was wondering, Knoch makes a lot of his own clothes, but how long would it take to learn to do that from scratch?
I might be doing a fashion course, but I'd really like to give it a shot.
The ease of the pod shorts is actually quite good. I don't even struggle walking up the stairs or jogging. Only running would be hard I guess.
I don't have an overlock and the machine I use is 20 years old and doesn't have a very good program for cleaning the seams. But the seams are tight, not fraying, and noone is seeing it when im wearing the shorts.
Obviously there's room for improvement but I'm still content with my work.
Didn't articulate myself correctly there. It's only based on their design. If you look closely you see that my pleats are going inwards
pleats here are going outwards: https://www.ssense.com/men/product/comme_des_garcons_homme_plus/black-pleated-wide-leg-shorts/91402
>don't compare yourself to Knoch
I didn't compare myself, but alright.
You /fa/ggots really do have a God complex with him, don't you?
>n-never say anything bad about Knoch!
Pretty sure he doesn't like any of us because we drove him away like we do with every interesting person we have.
Take the dick out of your ass mate.
true but practice is very important because whats the point of having the tools when you dont know how to use them
i´ve been wanting to make a dress like Dior´s cruis 2015 where Raf layered various printed and uniform fabrics to make a cleveage or a whole top
hahaha that reminds me the first time i went to cop fabric thread and buttons, for everything it was like $50 for two small rolls of thread, like 3m of cotton felt and some buttons and a mannequin is like $5
damn, i can live out of this if i ever get to make proper garments
btw any suggestions or things to keep in mind while copping a mannequin? should it be mad of something in specific or what about the measurements?
Do you mean a form? Get an adjustable one, especially if you're making clothes for yourself
you should do what they do in mythbusters and make a bust using your proportions by like making that mold and filling it with that rubbery stuff
that would make a perfect dress form for your proportions
If you can invest in a Wolf dress form, do it. It will last forever. PGM dress forms work if you're on a budget. If you're lucky, you can sometimes find both of these brands used. Don't buy an adjustable dress form unless you want a piece of useless garbage.
hmmm it sounds very nice but right now money is very importnat to me and i dont know how much would it cost to make a custom bust and finding some materials is very hard for me
maybe i´ll go for the adjustable mannequin if i eer find one, thanks anyways
made some new products for my webstore
if you guys want to buy one let me no
now i know how to make money for rather cheap
i need still some help tho
i´m want to make garments out of scrap and maybe custom made garments to sell them over /fa/ and other fashion sites
i.e. a fuccboi on /fa/ sends me some inspo pics for me to design him a new garment piece, i design it and send him the sketch, lets say a new jacket, he sends me his measurements and then i start making the garment, it will take me like a week or so and lets say like $50 for fabric, electricity and labour and then sell it to him for like $60 including shipment, but he has to send some money first for me to buy the materials, something like a contract, if he doesnt want it anymore, i can send some money back, not all because i´ve already made the garment custom made and then sell it to another person
will i make it /fa/? is this doable?
i still cant figur out the product thing,
in terms of regular garments, can i make lets say three jackets for each standard sizing and then sell them? would that be like 9 products of my 5 product limit or it would be just one product because its one garment but with three units and in three sizings
