Going Alone In The Fashion World

Putting your own spin on fashion is something that every single one of us does. Sure, there are people who have the same tastes to a certain degree, but there will always be something that we do different to those who claim to be the same. We are no longer following the norm and adhering to trends just to fit in. We are instead in an age where it is cool to be different, on trend to be unique and very much the done thing when making our own stuff up to fit our style. 

How To Make Clothes
Textiles is a dying art, especially in regards to being taught in schools nowadays. For some people it’s easy enough to pick up online with instructions and patterns available for you to follow, but others need a bit more guidance. It’s one of those things that you either pick up straight away or you don’t, so don’t be hard on yourself if it doesn’t come to you naturally - it’s the same for a lot of people. The best thing to do is browse through mannequins and dummies that you can use to aid your dressmaking skills and ensure that you have everything available to you that you need in order to make the item of clothing that you are attempting. Start easy with a simple slip dress, or don’t even make anything to wear at all - at least, not for you. Pillowcases are a good place to begin, but making clothes for children can also be a great experiment to test your sewing skills. 

How To Make Jewellery
People have been making their own jewellery for centuries, and are showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. There are video tutorials on sites like YouTube that are easy enough to follow, simply because it doesn’t take much skill to make basic jewellery that can be worn at any time. Usually it’s the items that take the least amount of time to make which seem to attract the most attention, as a simple design can be the most striking of all. The materials are available to buy all over the internet and in most craft shops. If you get good at it and enjoy what you’re doing, why not head over to a craft marketplace such as Etsy to sell to the public? It’s a great way to earn a bit of extra cash for doing something that you love. 

How To Style Your Hair
Again with the video tutorials, it’s probably a lot easier to watch somebody style their own hair/another person’s hair than read instructions on how to do it on yourself. We aren’t all double jointed so much so that we can twist our hands around to plait our hair as we would do on another person, and so it just takes a lot of trial and error on our part in order to be able to do pretty designs. Choose a style that suits you and work on it.
