Spice up your holidays by making your own smartwear from old clothes. Let’s crack the bubbles of wits to find some wonderful tricks for making holiday clothing.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
Hit the Beach in Style
Crafting beach wear that can actually make you look more hip, feel more confident can be quite simple and smart. Mixing and matching articles of clothing to create a new look is one of the fundamental tricks taught in a fashion designing course.
Combine Two Tees to Make One Beach Dress
Have you got 2 oversized tees that are lying around for nothing? Just sew or tie the low and top ends of the tees to design a cool new beach dress with a unique cut.
Wear a Scarf as a Skirt
This is a simple trick. Get an elastic band to be worn around the hip. Take the scarf and fold it into pleats. Tuck one end of the pleated scarf into the band and open up the pleats around the waist. Voila! Your skirt is ready!
Make a T-Shirt Necklace to Jazz Up your Look
You can make a fancy necklace from a t-shirt to up your style quotient when on the beach. Cut the t-shirt into many horizontal strips. Make pairs of these strips into braid-like ropes and connect them to make a fashionable necklace.
Look Cool on your Next Trip to a Cold Place
Looking fashionable and stylish in a freezing hill station can be easy if you tactfully use a tad of creativity and some basics of fashion designing.
Make a Beanie Hat From an Old Sweater
Cutting out a beanie hat from old sweaters is a cool hack one could pull off easily. All it takes is a decent hand at stitching. If you have an old sweater that’s only occupying space in your closet, then it’s time to bring out your sewing kit and turn it into a snazzy beret!
Cut a Tee, Make a Cardigan
This is to turn your favorite tee, that fits no longer, into a cardigan. Just cut through the middle of it in the front, attach a hem-tape at the seam to straighten it and wear it on a warm outfit. Fashion designing institutes stress on the importance of knowing the right tools for making the right modifications on an existing garment. You can put this knowledge to use here!
Make Mittens from Old Socks
It’s easy to make mittens from a pair of socks with some minimal cut and stitches. It’s one of the easiest things to make and can be embellished with simple props like beads or buttons.
Carry Wearable Fashion While Camping
You go camping in summer to beat the heat and enjoy the outdoors. Read on through a few amazing ideas that should be buzzing in fashion design classes to make camping fun and fashionable.
Make Khakis Interesting
Khakis are part of standard campwear but pepping it up is a definitely creative task. So why not cut interesting designs from old shorts or sew a fancy pocket to it?
Wear Fashionable Belts
A pair of shorts is a must-have while packing for camping. Take it up a notch by making a designer belt that could have accessories like hanging tribal beads, tassels and added hang-ons. Add a bandana or cowboy hat to make your own style statement.
