This article will show you 3 DIY clothes hacks that can save you a lot of money while you’re building your wardrobe. All these hacks are mostly common sense, but the fact is, that not all people follow the rule. After reading this article, you should have an idea of how to be a more practical and wise wardrobe manager. Don’t forget to bookmark this page for future reference.
The first of my diy clothes life hacks is to use the full tutorial method when learning anything new. For example, don’t try to glue a piece of denim together if you’re not an expert. If you look like a fool while trying to glue something, chances are, you won’t be able to get it looking good. Using the full tutorial technique, you can learn all about any subject. This will make it easier for you to be more creative when you’re putting your wardrobe together.
One of my favorite DIY clothes hacks is the scissors and glue technique. It may seem simple, but once you try it, you will understand why it is one of the best. There are a few ways you can use the scissors and glue technique to save yourself some money. By cutting a piece of fabric in the right length, then folding it in half, and using some staplers to cut off certain areas of the skirt, you can make the skirt looks like it was made specifically for your body.
To make the skirt, I recommend using a serger. You can also sew a pocket onto the bottom of the dress. The pockets don’t have to be anything fancy. You could use small clear plastic containers to hold your makeup. Some women prefer to use shoe organizers as a mini-purse.
Another of the great DIY clothing ideas that will save you money is the zipper tape method. I’ve seen this done on some very expensive dresses. The only tools you will need are zipper tape and some hot glue. Simply open the zipper, fold the excess fabric around the zipper, and press it into place.
If you want to save even more money, you can make your own DIY zipper. Using the exact same pattern that you used on the top part of the skirt, cut several inches of black marker or white paper. Once you have the length you want, fold the skirt into half and place the inner skirt inside. Next, use some hot glue and put a decorative button on the bottom back of the outer skirt to make it look like the skirt is part of the bodice.
Another great way to save even more money on the wedding day is to use duct tape to hold the skirt to the dress. This is a great idea for long dresses. I also recommend taking some extra time to add some tulle or ribbon to the bottom edge of the dress. To do this, simply cut some ribbon or some tissue paper to the exact size of the bodice. Attach it using duct tape and you’ll have a lovely custom made dress that will keep you in complete luxury all the way around.
Last but not least, one of my favorite DIY clothes hacks is to sew a heart shape into some button holes on a dress with a bodice. Then, using some glue and some tracing paper, I attached it to the bodice with sewing tape. There were a few parts where I had to use the sewing machine, but overall the project was simple and very enjoyable! I would say that the best part was putting the heart shape together as a full circle and wearing it on my dress for the first time!
