How to Create Custom Clothing
Most commonly custom clothing is used to refer to garments that are tailor-made, usually with a specific style or cut of fabric in mind. There are times when we know exactly what we want, but at the time of shopping we don’t have the option of taking our pick – we must buy what we can get, not matter how it looks on our frame. Custom clothing was created so that people could make garments to fit their exact size and body shape. Some custom-fitted clothes may have had a very small amount of alteration, while others may have required some serious reworking. This is because the nature of custom-made clothing is such that the proportions involved cannot be altered without altering the whole structure of the garment in question.
A great example of custom clothing is pants. When designing a pair of custom pants, you need to keep in mind what will be worn around them – will they be worn around the waist, or will they be worn over the hips? Will they be worn low or high? How about the length of the leg? All these factors will come into play to determine the way the pants fit and therefore the way they should look and be made to fit.
Another great way to create custom clothing is through the use of a special sewing machine. Although it is possible to sew garments manually using a basic sewing machine, if the fabric is complex and bulky, the sewing machine may be too large and heavy to be an effective solution. For these types of clothing, it would be best to either take a piece of fabric from an outside source and use needles to create a sleeve for the garment or to purchase a mini sewing machine which would be able to create custom made clothing from within.
