In this video we have a huge me-made wardrobe try on to give us and you some styling ideas for handmade clothes and embrace DIY fashion for spring!
We are now totally bored of the sweatpants and hoodies that have made up our lockdown wardrobes, so it’s time to refresh our handmade style for spring. If you are looking for some me-made wardrobe inspiration, or planning your sewing for spring, we hope our ideas on how to style handmade clothes will help. We are always looking for new me-made wardrobe ideas, but until you try everything on it is hard to know what you need – if anything – each new season. Having a spring try on helped us take a fresh look at our memade wardrobe and now we are full of spring sewing ideas.
We all love making and wearing me-made clothes, but it can be hard to know how to style handmade garments. A wardrobe try on is just the thing to help figure that out. Try on everything you have, mix up the colours and accessories, and you’ll soon be full of spring sewing inspiration. If this video has give you some spring sewing ideas and helped you decide what to sew for spring wardrobe, we’d love to hear your plans in the comments below!
