Lads, im thinking of making my own RAF style jacket/parka.

How shit/flawed is my method and how likely am i to fuck it up?

Basically, this is what ive cooked up.
>buy plain piece of fabric
>Print artwork i want on the back of jacket (most probably a beksinski painting) using this method
https://youtu.be/yO3qZR8ahlk
>leave 1.5cm border around said image for sewing into using this method.
https://youtu.be/ODoLrCTxp5o
>Cut hole in back of a plain black Parka/jacket and sew into it using above method
?????????????
>cheap Raf parka

I understand theres a lot more to the appeal of actual raf parkas than just the fancy image on the back, but i dont feel like shelling out 10k to buy one. I can see it coming out a lot worse than i expect it to but i guess its worth a try, if not just for practice.

Hello, kmart in my area has some cargo pants that fit pretty nice as pictured and i was wondering what would happen if i died them and which colour would look good they come in black and tan. what would happen if i died the black ones with white dye or bleach? would it look cool or the tan ones navy would that work? cheers
>>
>>7458
you can't dye anything white
if you bleach, it'll weaken the fabric and change the color to whatever the base of their black is (usually an orange)

ignoring the rest of your post
>>
>>7459
ok thanks
>>

do you know about vice versa? white to black

literally just identify the fiber of your item, buy a black dye kit for that fiber, follow the instructions

Oh yeah, and this. Honestly, I would just get a acrylic gel medium instead. It's going to maybe twice as much cost wise, but the finish is going to be smoother and once completely dry is going to wash the same as fabric paint.

don't cut a hole in the parka. just sew the patch over the existing fabric.

if you cut a hole in the parka, it will drape incorrectly forever thereafter unless the fabric you're replacing it with is of the same weight, drapes in the same manner, and you sew it absolutely perfectly.

just sew the patch onto the parka.

trust me.

Nice thread anon, wish it were more active.

I myself made a New Years resolution to learn how to hand-sew my own clothing without a machine. I have nothing but free time and I have always hated using a machine because its loud and stressful.

Starting with a basic bucket hat kit from Alabama Chanin. I also bought the book and it seems that all their teaching styles are based on hand-stitching from start to finish.

I think I want to DIY these rather than spend $500+ on them. Soloist 'The Jean' made from Levis 501s. Does anyone have a pattern like this or would it basically be go nuts with a seam ripper and scissors and guess? Probably going to do them in grey or faded black.
>>
>>7515
I think you need 1 or 2 jeans as a source of fabric. When you cut out a square you'll need to cut out the same figure + 2cm on every side from those other jeans. Plan and measure where you want to cut.

The anon in the previous thread (>>12280390) that made the jacket also mentioned fabric paint. I once painted letters in various colours on a tshirt to make my own devo tshirt (I gave it away). I did 2 or 3 layers of cheap acrylic paint and it didn't disappear after washing, although it had a 'cracked' texture.

It's only lightly water resistant; a heavy rain would make quick work of the jacket

Would someone mind elaborating on "sustainability"? I think it should be fairly easy to piece things together from old inspo and old clothing (to take apart and make into new stuff), if that's what you mean

"The goal of (sustainable fashion] is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility. It can be seen as an alternative trend against fast fashion." Wiki sez. I guess it means that you try to minimize the negative impact the creation of clothing has on the earth so that later generations can still benefit from it. Repurposing clothes is part of it, but also using natural dyes and creating clothes that have a longer lifespan than just one season. Story MFG seems like a good example.

You'd need a sewing awl for the sole and possibly something to punch holes with for the leather, you can buy a leather punch online. Cop leather from etsy, you can get a 12x12 sheet for $5-$7, so you can get a few. Leather is a bitch to sew though.

There are plenty tutorials online. You measure what you need to take in. You fold the pants inside out. You draw a line, stitch and cut the leftover fabric. I think a better project for a beginner would be a tshirt. It's a simple project to get familiar with the sewing machine and it's various stitches. It also gives you a basic idea of how a garment is constructed. The pastebin has links to websites that offer patterns. Instructions are included with them.

What percent cotton/poly was yours and what dye/how much did you use?
I have a 65/35 and I used to packs of rit dye with hot water and salt and my jacket is noticeably darker but it isn't black more of a very dark green and in some light black-ish with the pattern coming through.
Also does anyone know if I will have to use a dye remover before trying to darken it again or should I just keep adding dye to it? I'd post a picture but I have no form of camera at the moment.
thank you.

I would like to create a big ass back patch for this jacket I am working on. I want it to be a tall rectangle and basically cover almost all of the back.

I was thinking of getting it printed on a T shirt and then cutting it but honestly I think it is too big for that. Is there any website where I could just print it on a stretch of cotton fabric?

Some places will print anything on any fabric that you bring in as long as it's in a .svg, but maybe you don't have those where you live.

Find strips of fabric of the desired length and twice the required width, fold in half, stitch shut, iron flat, stitch to shirt, repeat

I make a stencil with freezer paper, iron it onto the shirt, and spray bleach onto the stencil. For the Bad Books one it was 4 layers to get the different shades. Here's a single layer one

>Cut out the lightest color for the first layer stencil. We have three for this one.
>Layer two, cut out the lightest and second lightest color.
>Third layer is everything but black.
>Iron on the first stencil (lightest color)
>With a spray bottle (very fine mist- this is important) of a 50/50 bleach and water mix, spray a conservative amount of bleach onto the stencil/shirt.
>Dab it up with a paper towel immediately
>Peel off the stencil and wait a sec for the bleach to take effect. This is variable on your design, more time= lighter color.
>Carefully line up the next stencil and do the same thing. Since you have the two lightest colors cut out, the first layer will now be lighter and the second will be the initial spray's color.
>After you've sprayed every layer, submerge the shirt in cold water for a bit. This will neutralize the bleach and stop the process.
That's pretty much it, it takes a little tweaking to make it look clean, but after a few attempts you'll start to develop your own technique.

I was thinking that I could grab this shirt and dye it whatever colour I want and keep a good check pattern. They're sold out of my size but any opinions? Best dye? They might restock.

That's the thing with dyes, I'm thinking. They might only come in homemakers colours. Red could come out too pretty.

kind of wanted some nice oversized shirts

>tfw fell for the parka meme
Literally can't get this thing turn black. Using 3 packs of RIT dye and salt etc... have tried 3 times. Probably just going to end up using a shit ton of dye.
>>
>>7673
It's not supposed to turn black, you're supposed to see the camo pattern, otherwise its just another black parka
>>
>>7662
i dont know the exact chemical composition of the soles but leaving them in daylight should start to discolour the rubber

I definitely don't want yellow or dirty soles.

nice work anon

Sup /diy/, first time here. I've bought these white shoes and the seller hid the fact that they were yellowed to shit, as in pic.

I fear that trying to restore the white will be a costly disaster, so I'm considering customizing them. I have no patchwork/stitching/fabric experience, but I am a pretty good illustrator. I would just draw on em, but I feel it would look cheap/crummy. Any opinions/inspo for shoe customizing? They're canvas.
>>
>>7673
let me guess, used shitty bucket method instead of washing mashine
>>
>>7678
just throw them in bleach, then in the washing machine.
>>
>>7676
the imported ones are yellow you god damn fucking retard

they turn that color when they get fucking dirty

Guy with the black parka here. Your pattern was what I aimed for. Yours looks great, don't dye it further. I used two packs for two parkas in a washing machine, both are completely black.
>>
>>7684
Looks nice and clean

>>7679
Nah I used washing machine, but mine doesn't have an only spin mode.
So I sat there with a broom stick for 45 minutes pushing it around. 3 different times.

You can always paint on them with acrylic but it'll look diy

>>7689
burn them

why can't all jeans just have normal rises? i bought a pair of cheap mondays but didn't know they were some dropcrotch fuccshit with microscopic pockets

not sure if it would work but:
apply a heavy coat of white acrylic interior/exterior paint
let them dry in the sun
>>
>>7698
yeah tried art acrylic paint and it came off in the rain :)

Need something high key and waterproof.
>>
>>7699
That's why i think int/ext paint, the kind you would use to paint a house, would work.
I know house paint cracks and flakes on jeans once dry if it's built up enough, so maybe it would do the same on canvas shoes.

I painted some vans red with 2 layer of acrylic paint. I have been wearing them for 2 weeks and the paint cracked a bit but only the 2 layer so you can't see the original colour.
(This picture was taken after 2 weeks of almost daily wear) sorry for broken English, only trying to contribute.
>>
>>7709
dump some inspo, I ain't got no (band) shirts that I'd sacrifice for that purpose atm.
>>
>>7718
maybe you should get some shoes in the colour you want to paint them? So if the paint cracks, the colour of the shoe still matches.
>>
>>7720
Yeah you can do this. I painted my vans because I really wanted some red vans and I had bought some ugly tiedye vans for really cheap. I also think it's pretty cool that you can see the other color under the paint.

Is there a way to replace this safety pin with a standard post pin? I find this too fragile and loose.

>>7722
The posts are usually glued on, so just find a shitty one you won't feel bad abound ruining and take the back off it.

5 minute epoxy it to the back and you're golden.

Or save them. It's still fabric. Maybe for a denim parka.
