There are many ways to do your own clothes.
In modern Western society, the profitability of waste and confusion determine a perspective that is generally dominant. The way to make your own clothes according to this perspective is to buy a pattern, follow the instructions on it and make this piece of garment because it was designed. This has many advantages for those who have little time but always interested in the manufacture of clothing. It has even more benefits for those who benefit the industrially established way to make clothes.
The models are sold for heavy profit, and because making clothes this way is so expensive, mass producers earn more money still by continuing to sell you clothes for less than you can do them yourself yourself . These mass clothes have been designed around a model or model, whose proportions differ from you, your family and friends. The adjustment is then a mass product fit, theoretically designed around at least one average proportion, but trying clothes, it is obvious that if the average exists, it does not model the garment industry.
The factory is a modern invention, much younger than clothing and fashion. The clothes were formerly made by people who knew and met those they made clothes for, even using the carrier as a model for adjustment. Thus, there are ways to make clothes that do not have so strongly on consumption processes. It takes more time to make your own clothes, true. This requires learning and commitment. However, it does not require schooling (especially if you already know how to sew) and should not be expensive either. The time commitment is not serious. Once we started learning, to engage in the creative process, the time is filled and the hours of television monitoring or reading novels become hours of learning and crafts. Or maybe only an hour than a few nights a week to play with silk paper and needles is all you decide to spend.
The design methods are simple.
This makes a flat pattern on the paper curve to adapt to the body are only small triangular areas cut or folded. These triangular areas are called darts. With a base flat pattern, the possibilities of altering slightly or completely the design are as simple as changing these darts. There are simple means of moving darts in other areas of the pattern, combine or divide them, rotate or straighten, gather or release. And although these methods are mathematically perfect, they require very little technical knowledge or calculations or complex notions. You do not need software to do it.
