    Making your own clothes.

    Discussion started by suburbian bum - May 11, 2002

    I recently though of the idea of making a pair of pants from scratch. I think this would be good fun, cause you could make em however you want. Im thinking of making some fairly baggy corderoy pants, or mayby khakies(sp?). ANyways i was wondering if you guys have nay tips of hte subject and mayby sites with dimentions for sewing so i could get the general idea.

    i'm adding cuffs to some black pants that i have that are too short. purple flower print, because i'm gay. i mean samoan.

    oh, and i made some pants a while ago where i cut the pocket open, and cut a pants leg off some hospital pants from the thrift store and sewed it in there so the pocket goes down to the ankle. "theft pants" i call them. my ex-girlfriend still has them.

    Yeah making huge pockets is always fun, and surprizingly easy. I could sew two pockets into a pair of pants that could hold like 15 cans in about 10 mins.

    use a stitch ripper to tear apart a pair of your favorite worn-out nasty old pants (assuming you have some). use this as a template, but change the parts you want to.

    i haven't done it, bu tthis is how i'd do it. it'd be a lot of work, but you'd have the perfect pair of pants.. the holy grail of clothing....

    i have a lot of clothes that i made my self, it's fun... i don't really have any tips, except if yer doing something big like pants i'd recomend using a sewing machine and not hand-stitching-- it gets to be quite a pain...

    just experiment and see what works... have fun! :)
