Creating and designing clothing online is a fun and easy way for people interested in starting their own fashion line to get a feel for the structure and detail that goes into the creation of shirts, dresses, slacks, shorts and more. This article will show you where to design clothes online.
Section one: The basics
Many websites, which cater to the custom clothing crowd allow their users to design a variety of items for free, and the practice and experience can lay a solid foundation for upcoming fashion entrepreneurs.
Finding the website
Find a website that allows you to create and tweak custom clothing designs for free. Websites, such as Spreadshirt, DressByDesign, MakeYourOwnJeans and StyleShake give users the opportunity to make your own customised clothing. Selection of clothing
Select the clothing item that you want to design. For example, choose jeans, a dress, a skirt, a hat or whatever item, which inspires your creativity. If you are creating clothing to add to your own closet, pick something that will be a nice addition to your current wardrobe and style. Fabric choices or colours Decide on your fabric choices and/or colours. Consider the season and the other clothes that you may want to wear with it when making your selection. Again, be conscious of the intended wearer and the colours that will enhance her skin tone. Choose specific qualities for the neckline, hemline and in-seam. Pick cuts and seams that will complement the wearer's figure and are appropriate for the item's day wear or evening-wear functionality. Think about any jewellery that may accessorise your decollete when narrowing down your neckline preferences. Design to your heart's delight
Play with a variety of colour combinations and different tailoring specifications to test the website's design capabilities. Do not limit your creativity by trying only one website. Instead, test-drive a few websites before committing to any purchases. Save your designs in your user account, or copy and paste your images to your hard drive. Ordering the designs and patterns
You can order your designs to be made and shipped to you, and some sites give you the option to order patterns of your personalised clothing and to be an online designer.
