Clothing Ideas You'd Do If You Were A Clothes Designer - Page 2

How did you go about learning how to tailor? Have you enrolled in local fashion classes, read how-to manuals, or just winged it? Haha I'm in the same situation as you, but have no idea how to begin. Thanks.

Doing away with vanity sizing, especially for men's clothes. Let's both be honest, there's no way that shirt is a small. I think there's a DIY tailoring thread to be made at some point. Next time I hem some pants, I'll try to come up with pics for it.

In Barneys yesterday there was a gay boy who was already busting out of a 40 and came up to my SA and was like "Ummm....I need this in a 38...or actually I can really fit into a 36."

I read up just a little bit, then figured out the rest from practice and analyzing the garment. Some things are super easy, such as hemming. You break a seam, raise it/lower it, then resew the seam. Others, such as slimming a shirt, are just a bit more difficult. There are also hard and easy ways of doing things. For instance, with shirts you can either totally reconstruct the entire shirt to do it 'properly' (remove sleeves, slim sleeves, slim and reshape torso, make sure sleeves match armhole in torso in size and angle, reattach), or you can simply make a few simple, straight seams up the side and arms, cut the fabric from the inside, and voila! The area where the sleeve meets the torso at the pit will be 'off' a bit, but it's not something anyone will notice.

Just an example.

If I designed my own line, it would only go from XS-M. Not because I think being bigger than a medium is a bad thing, but because my ideas wouldn't be of interest to people larger than this. I'm really slim and there isn't enough catering to us. :x

^^^ Yea, going along with that. I'd just do the basics for lanky / skinny / tall body types. (Solid tops, khakis, Sweaters), affordable of course. Theres only one brand that puts out this type of fit (and I have atleast 10 or 12 pieces from them ). I can usually find 31x34 pants anywhere, but as for tops, Id be like a 36 or 38XL, So its not like I can just get everything tailored... Oh and a hoody with big buttons, but I see its being done.
