How to Design Clothes: 9 Steps (with Pictures)
Cecilia Cassini - 10 Year Old Fashion Designer | Oddity Central Get inspired. Look for fabrics, objects or people who inspire you to create a new piece of clothing. Search online or in magazines for current or retro trends that you might want to incorporate into your designs. Try visiting craft and fabric stores to find swatches or notions that could form the basis for a whole piece. Begin to draw. You can draw on paper, or with a computer software. Either way, start with a basic human form. It doesn't have to be anatomically correct, as long as it provides a stable basis for you to design clothing. Outline the basic shape of the garment you wish to design, starting with big ideas and adding details as you refine the drawing. Add color. A lot of the success of your design can depend on what colors you use. Think about the garment's intended purpose and how you imagine someone wearing it. Then choose your colors accordingly. Try to blend unexpected color combinations to add an element of surprise to your design. Use accessories. Frame your design by drawing in accessories such as belts, scarves, jewelry, hats or shoes. Choose items that are compatible with the overall theme of the garment. You can also add a hairstyle or facial expression to the drawing. Learn to sew. Acquire basic sewing skills so that you can bring your designs to life. Learn how to sew using patterns so that you can eventually design your own. As your talents progress, you might find yourself becoming inspired by different stitches or techniques. Select a fabric. Consider texture and flow of fabric in relation to your pattern. Obtain extra fabric as may arise with assembly, as well as embellishments such as buttons, lace, beads or embroidery floss. Assemble your design. Once you know how to sew and create a pattern, build your design. You might want to use a dressmaking dummy to form a basic fit. Make a portfolio. Keep a collection of designs in a folder or notebook for future inspiration. Consider carrying a sketchbook with you, so that you can take down ideas whenever they strike. Promote your designs. When you're confident that your designs are good and your garments are wearable, consider submitting your work to sites that share fashion designs online. This can help you gain exposure and build your career.
  • Make sure that this is something you'll stick to. It will be a waste to buy stuff and not use it.
  • Take art classes to help with the drawing of base models.
  • Ask for help from someone with more experience.
  • Take accurate measurements of the person that will be wearing your design.
  • Think about the texture and fabric and if it will be a strong, durable, non-shrinking fabric.
  • Don't invest in a big purchase like a sewing machine if you've never used one, or are only making a single garment. Just borrow one from a friend or family member.
  • find colors that look great together like zebra and brownish tan or black or white with a bright pink or blue
  • Look on Google different designers for ideas and inspiration.
  • Make sure you have enough material for your outfit.
  • Be cautious with sharp and hot tools, such as scissors, needles or an iron.

Build your own costume

One thing we are trying this year at our 4-H Halloween party is a Build Your Own Costume contest. We have asked people to bring along random objects and clothes/etc that would normally be going to a rummage sale. We will place all items on a table, and let the kids rummage through to "design" their own costumes. We plan on giving prizes for most humorous and most creative.
