It's really not difficult, but if you're new to sewing you might want to try something with woven fabric first, since knits can be a bitch to work with if you don't know what you're doing.

I got this 60's adidas jacket, and I strive to reanimate it.
It has got a few paint stains which are about 20 years old.
The zip and the velcros are broken but are replaceable.
The cuff has a large paint stain, and I'm thinking about getting both cuffs covered in reflective paint.

But I have no clue what to do with the small paint stains that are all over the jacket.
Because It's unlikely that I'll be able to remove them even with gasoline.

What could I do?
Also, I'm open to suggestions

thanks /fa/

i have nos experience but i'd imagine removing the collar in a way that was comfortable and aesthetically pleasant would be pretty difficult. its also a nice jacket to begin with.

perhaps try customizing it rather than fully transforming it if you get me
>>
>>13014677
You would have a hard time. A kimono collar wraps all the way around the neck to the bottom of the actual jacket, creating a sort bomber jacket effect at the neck. A regular western jacket with a collar does not do this, instead opting for an O-neck with two 90 degree angles met at the first button (and obviously a collar on top).
You could do it if you really wanted to, but I think you think it's just a matter of cutting one seam while it's a whole series of additions. I hope you decide to do it though because I'd love to see the result.
>>
>>13014849
Yes, i thought about adding a black or brown line like the blue one on the picture and removing the buttons but not much more. It has an already an "chinese/japanese shape"

Don't worry about expensive materials, custom graphic designs or fancy shit until you have absolutely mastered the basics. I made the same mistake, trying to dive in head-first, and wasted thousands of dollars on bullshit that never looked 'right.'
Go buy $100 worth of muslin and mess around with some simple but structured patterns until you're comfortable with your machine.

I had a similar thought and moment of dread between cutting and putting it together, but in the end I'm pretty happy with it. I'll probably end up keeping it for myself and using a different bodice for the remaining fabric.

Yeah that’d be ideal. How would I go about it?
>>
>>13027059
Trace a pattern for the back panel and front panels of the jacket, and then the front and rear of each sleeve onto large construction paper. Then cut it out a little larger than necessary to allow for your seams. Sew the seams together so the Sherpa fabric has the finished edge inside, as youd expect from a liner. Then, hem the sleeves. Insert the liner in and sew it at the collar, then the front panels, then the bottom of the back panel. Then sew the sleeves in.

In my experience, it's better to have a Liner Thats a little too large, because too small will pull the jacket and change how it fits.

Hey /DIY/, so I have a question for the sewers out there.

If I wanted to add fabric swatches to already made pieces (t-shirts, pullovers, etc., pic for reference) what would be the best way to do so? Would I have to do it by hand? Or can I use a machine (I would prefer this since I have a hand-me-down one, but have no prior experience sewing)?

And if I used a machine, would I have to take the piece apart first to do it? Or is there a better method? I haven't been able to find a single good tutorial online that shows this, so hopefully someone here can help.

Thanks in advance.
>>
>>13008160
Very nice g
>>
>>13032868
It's dead simple desu. Just iron the sides flat then sew any way you see fit. You can do it by machine or by hand but that question comes down to "do I have a machine, do I want to do it by hand, and (most importantly) can the machine fit into this specific spot"

I've done loads of patchwork before and the only times I've ever had to take a piece apart was if I was applying a patch underneath a previously existing seam, those times being patching a pocket and patching a hole on my pants on the way outside. Patching anywhere else really doesn't call for a disassembly of any kind.

If you want videos, maybe look up how to patch pants, or how to patch an old shirt. It's the same concept. Also don't be afraid to hand sew!! It's dumb easy, you just put the needle in the fabric and pull it out on the other end. Good luck my dude

Cheers man, appreciate it.

I guess that's what I was wondering, if the machine can fit a specific spot. I'm not against hand sew, I just prefer the consistency and ease of a machine, but I'll look more into hand sewing first.

Thanks again.

I'm having a tough time attempting to understand what I should be focusing on, as I desire to venture further into the creation of clothing pieces but I am very limited in regards to my formal artistry skills.

I would like to work in the world of fashion, but it seems like you need to be a damn good artist to get into the design schools that are worth a damn, and it seems like any schools that are seen as lesser than a place like Parsons will more than likely not land you an internship.

I went to /ic/ to explore the ways in which I could quickly improve my art skills in order to hopefully create an art portfolio that would allow me entry into a place like The New School, but it seems like if you are not posting something about Loomis figures, anime or character development then it is, more often than not, disregarded.

Can anyone in the field give me some perspective on their past as a creative? Should I go back to focusing mainly on creating my own patterns and pieces instead of learning stuff like perspective and human anatomy for drawing?

i went to a pre-school for design, helped me build a small portfolio and learned me design process. Its practically impossible to get into any of the good design schools without some pre-studies

pre-school for design

Are there any names for this other than a pre-school for design? The only things I get on Google are things for children. I've searched for things like "primer school" and many other terms to no avail.

Should I begin emailing the admissions offices at design schools for advice on the best resources for pre-study in order to build a good portfolio?

I'm enrolled in school now, but I am reluctant to take any art courses since I don't want to miss any of the art coursework. It probably sounds strange, but for once I can say that I don't want the credits for a course to transfer.

current project, a military inspired thermo vest.
kinda stuck on what to do with the straps on the sides. any ideas/inspo?

Anyone here apply DWR to some of their clothes? I have a Cotton-Nylon blend pants that I would like to apply some, their fairly expensive and don't want to ruin them. Any guides on how to do it? And how long do they last?

I can sew up basic shit. Although everything that I know is pretty lacking. I feel like I have just a basic grasp at most of the shit that I do, but the way I felt after sewing up my first piece from a pattern that I made felt rewarding as Hell.

>>13033592
Take this with a grain of salt because I'm still a peon, but whenever I think military-themed then I think of utility with a purpose that's presented in the most efficient fashion. Are there any ways that you could thread the belts through the middle fabric in a way that I could adjust the sides to better conform to my body without having to take the piece off or move my body awkwardly to adjust the tension while having the belt hidden from plain sight?
>>
>>13033682
ah true, instead of going for its aesthetically i might aswell just make some sort of function (unnecessary or not) although sewing that stuff is difficult as fuck and time consuming
>>
>>13033708
I don't understand the grind in creating something like this so really take it with a grain of salt. I'm really digging the jacket though.

>>
>>13034046
spring wardrobe stuff; a cocktail dress and some blouses and a chanel style cardigan jacket and some odds and ends.

I'm punching way above my weight-class in all honesty, more than likely I'll have to bring in some help or risk making a mess of it all.

Well, I am learning slowly. But I can't help that my conceptual understanding outstrips my skill. One minute you are sewing a bucket hat and the next you are reading advanced couture sewing techniques before you even finished it.

gotta practice the technical.

How did you make that pin?
>>
>>13035493
It's a clip. I pretty much just took a hair clip blank and soldered some spent brass to it.
>>13035157
This one I used a drill and a jewelers saw to cut out a design into nickel, then polished it and used wire to attach it to the clip.

Once you get the basics down it isn't too hard to make a jacket. Admittedly this picture was from before I finished pressing everything, and it isn't the same size as the dress form.

I recently did this illustration and since it has only one color, I was thinking about screen printing a t-shirt with it.
From your experience, would I get enough detail for it to read well?

I used the "Nupastel" one from Kyle Webster, if I recall correctly.
But I believe the main thing about that one is the DIY crayon texture I used. I scanned it, removed the white paper and then just painted everything on top of it using clipping masks

update on the DIY.

I thrifted another pair of jeans with the same wash and used the back pockets and scraps to make cargo pockets. Its a work in progress but I think it look decent.

Maybe without those awful stripes.

I think it looks fine as is. Its very clean and gets the job done.

on the other end of the spectrum. maybe inspo for another project. my brother has this paintball vest with an overkill lacing system with pulleys. Ive never seen a tactical vest with something like this before a majority just use straps and buckles.

the entire point of the pants are the stripes.

Aw geez, thanks anons. Admittedly I did buy a metric fuck-tonne of fabric that I thought had 'mass appeal' so that I can try to build up a bit of a following and easy sales before I move into nicer stuff.

well theres your issue. nothing ventured nothing gained

I guess, but in my defense, the patterns aren't cheap and I have none of the supplies.

not if you have the right tools
only cut myself once lol

I tried dying my chucks black and I am so very displeased with my result. Not only did it turn the soles blue, but it shrunk the shoes too small somehow, I read online that converse "cant shrink" well sorry, wrong, if you put them in hot water for a long time, they will shrink like a motherfuck. the dye didn't barely even do anything either, it turned green converse into slightly darker green.

sorry for the seriously late response, I've been occupied with this project and some personal things so I did not get into /fa/.
I'm from Argentina, I'm just going to print out some patterns since there's a dude I found online that makes patterns from photos and prints them about 12 dollars each size.
The idea is to make asian inspired clothing but not just making asian looking prints but also using some custom patterns.
The cost of each shirt is around 7 dollars or so, with packaging and all that crap, we are going to sell it for 15 dollars and split the profit in half since my friend is the guy contacting all the companies and he is the investor, (we are just using his money) so my only responsability is to make some nice designs and post stuff on our instagram and facebook pages.

We are going to start producing next week if everything goes as planned, so wish us luck!

yeah maybe not overdo it, simple so that i actually end up using it
