Sewing Your Own Clothes Gets Modernized With SANS

We all hate seeing our favourite clothes on someone else. But in a world of mass production, it is bound to happen. And let's face it, not all of us can afford designer haute couture...

So what's the solution? How does one wear an ensemble that is a reflection of one's self? How to stand apart from the world, at least with regard to the clothes we wear? Make your own clothes, which I guess would be the best and surest way to create a style statement that is all you.

But here comes another glitch. Not many of us know how to cut cloth, leave alone, sew a dress...

SANS is here to rescue us.

With the readily available patterns on the site and only minimal sewing experience you can

1) buy and download the digital pattern / instructions,

2) print (A4 or Letter sized paper),

3) cut and sew your own SANS piece. Recycle something, decorate it, try something unexpected...and this is where SANS is so great.

It lets you let your creative juices flow. The sky is the limit.

Part of an avant-garde online fashion experiment, SANS lets you do more than simply ordering shirts. Customers can add their own touch by printing a pattern from the SANS website and sewing it together on their own.

So, wait a while before ditching that worn-out tee from 9th grade, you can simply transform it into a recycled, but trendy garment. And, to celebrate this revival of personal flair, SANS features customer designs on their website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both women's and men's Square sewing patterns are available with more advanced pieces to follow. The patterns retail at $6 each.

So what are you waiting for? Get online, download, and get a pair of scissors, snip, sew and transform

Here's to a new wardrobe!

Just plain UGLY!!!

This is a total insult to anyone who sews. However, if you want to discourage a potential sewer, this is it!
