I'm not sure if this goes in the DIY forum or not, since I'm not sharing DIY tips, I just want to ask if anyone here makes their own clothes? I have a very unique style, so I find it VERY hard to find clothes that suit my own personal 'vision' especially in the high street, almost all of my clothes shopping is done online for this reason. But even so, I find it very difficult to find clothing that suits my desires....

so I thought, why don't I make my own clothes? I have some experience with making my own clothes, as I make costumes like below:

I haven't made any 'casual' clothes for myself yet, but I'm exploring the idea and would like to.

I wondered if anyone else makes their own clothes, what they think of it, and if they have any examples to show? :D I would love to be inspired!

I make my own clothing, mostly for fashion shows since I'm a fashion design student. Here's a collection I designed last spring.

Hi, I make my own kilts.
Its a hobby, and hand stitched wool kilts are way too expensive for me to buy.
I have also made myself a stingy brimmed pork pie hat out of leather and am currently working on a veg tan sporran stamped in a celtic pattern style.

@Olivia A. Your costumes are so cool! I made some costumes by myself for cosplay) And some simple dresses as 'casual' clothes.

Beautiful! The closest I've ever come to making my own clothes was hand-painted tees and sneakers over a decade ago.
