Embroidery is the new DIY.
This trend will bring out your inner fashion designer as cool girls from all over internet have been altering their wardrobe with embroidery in the form of sassy quotes, names and other popular memes. The era of Being Plain Jane is below us, so why not wear a tee shirt with a little more something to it? Remember that Abercrombie shirt that read “Fast girls finish first” in velcro? Okay, so maybe that didn’t get a second run with production-but either way- those types of sayings were on to something that was much bigger and better than velcro. Now, you can be your own philosopher and spread your own gospels on your shirt, on your denim, or on your favorite jacket. Gone are the days when embroidered needlework was limited to a round fabric photo frame in your 6th period Home Ec class.
It’s really simple. Head to your local seamstress or visit your local dry cleaners. Any business with a sewing machine and a skilled artisan can create what you wish.
Here’s how all the cool fashion girls are rocking embroidered typography on their favorite clothes.
Revamping A Vintage Sweater
All the cool fashion girls are restoring old vintage sweaters from the thrift store by adding beauty to the logos. You can also buy this type of design at stores like Urban Outfitters and Opening Ceremony. But it’s wayyy cheaper to do it yourself.
Revamping an old sweater is a great starting place and can be done with a needle and an array of thread.
