4 Creative Ways to
Customize Your Clothing

Get creative and transform your clothes

Customising your clothing is a great hobby to take up right now. You have probably noticed that more and more shops are allowing customers to personalise their items.

But the fact that it’s trendy isn’t the only great thing about this hobby. It is a pastime that allows you to be creative and imaginative and to transform something ordinary into something beautiful and unique.

Customising clothing is also a very easy hobby to get started on. You will need some basic craft tools like scissors, a sewing kit and some material and accessories. However, the specific kit you need will depend on how you aim to adapt your clothing. Over time, you can begin to learn more complicated ways to customise. And if you really enjoy this hobby, you may even wish to invest in some professional tools, like a sewing machine.

Ideas for customizing your clothes

Interested? Here are some ideas for customising your clothes to help you get started:

1. Embellish - If you like your clothes to have a bit of bling about them, why not add some shiny additions like Swarovski crystal elements, colourful gems or pearls. When it comes to embellishing, it can be easily overdone so do stick with the rule of less is more. Add concentrated jewel detailing to small sections of clothing like collars, cuffs, capped sleeves, pockets and hems. You can choose stick-on items, or you can glue or sew them on by hand.

2. Fringe - You may have noticed that the seventies are back in a big way in the fashion world. This means you’ll be seeing a lot of hippie fringes on garments. But there is no need to spend a fortune on a new outfit when you can make your own at home! Fringe detailing can be added to plenty of garments and accessories, including waistcoats, tops, dresses, skirts, scarves and bags. Ready-made fringes can be sewed to the edge of garments, or you can fringe certain clothes, like t-shirts, easily yourself.

3. Dye - Why not embrace the ombré trend by dip-dyeing your plain t-shirts, dresses or skirts? It’s really easy to do and creates beautiful garments that are perfect for your spring and summer wardrobe. You’ll need some clothing dye (in whatever colour you desire), some heavy duty rubber gloves to protect your skin and some plain garments.

4. Patch - If you have any clothes that need patching up, or you just want to add a bit of interest to your garments, adding sections of contrasting material can work very well. Worn out elbows can get a second life when repaired with a fabric in a beautiful colour or pattern. Just for fun, why not jazz up a plain pair of trousers with some vibrant material on the bottom pockets or around the hem.

These are just a few ideas for customising your clothes. Once you start exploring this hobby, you’ll discover there is so much more. We hope that this post has inspired you to start customising your clothes, transforming them into creations that all your friends and family will admire.
