A self-sewn T-shirt will look fashionable, original and stylish. However, when designing and sewing such a thing, several points must be taken into account. Then the T-shirt will delight you for more than one season.
Sometimes there is a desire to sew some fashionable thing on your own. For example, an original stylish T-shirt, which others do not have. Basically, it's not that difficult. It is enough to be able to hold a needle in your hands.
Thinking over, choosing source materials
First, you need to think about the model. Whether the T-shirt will be tight-fitting or loose-fitting, with what it can be worn, with what accessories to combine.
Based on this, you need to choose the right material and accessories. It is advisable to choose a fabric that does not crumble during the cut, since it will be difficult for non-professionals to evenly sweep the edges and sew the seams evenly. Therefore, it is better to leave satin and silk for later. But viscose or cotton in combination with elastane is fine.
How to cut
You can make a classic cut, take measurements, draw a drawing and make a pattern, according to which you can then cut a future T-shirt. To do this, you need the following measurements: waist half, chest half, neck half, shoulder circumference, product length.
But there is a simpler way. It is relevant if the T-shirt is loose or slanting. You just need to carefully spread your old T-shirt or blouse on the floor and outline it with chalk. Based on the resulting drawing, it will be very easy to tailor a new thing.
Loose fit has its advantages - you can design some original element, for example, a slot in the back or a batwing sleeve. But you never know what? Fantasy will transform your homemade t-shirt into a genuine work of art. The main thing is to make sure that all the seams are even and nothing sticks out anywhere, then you will get a really designer thing.
The most interesting thing about sewing is decoration. This is what makes the thing unique. The T-shirt can be decorated with anything. Flowers, large multi-colored buttons, appliques and even fur will be used. The main thing is not to overdo it. A cleverly designed T-shirt will look beautiful and fashionable. So, for example, if you decide to decorate it with a large element, then let it be alone. In this case, it is better if it is located on the chest, shifted slightly to the side. A little tip: when you wear such a T-shirt, it is better to collect your hair in a bun or ponytail.
Small details will look exquisite when placed correctly. You can sew on sequins. It is good to group them in an applique or scatter them in sparse rows over the entire surface. Stones on the neckline or sleeve will also look good. You can also sew shoulder straps.
Or you can not decorate with anything at all. It is enough to choose a suitable piece of jewelry that can be changed every time.
