Well, as the title suggests, i am new to this.
I've recently been inspired to make my own clothing
or just customising the clothing i already own
after watching some program on TV.
Thing is... I'm not the most creative person in the world
and i only have a dinky travel sewing machine presently.

It's my school's annual fashion show coming up
and there's always a funky tshirt everyone gets.
It's a man-cut and they all look the same.
Some people customise theirs and i am always jealous
as they look cool and i'm not brave enough to customise mine!
This year, I want to be the one with the best tshirt.
Ideas on how to make it the best
and make it stand out the most would be greatly appreciated!!

awesome idea!!!!! Grin  one thing you could do is get one a size bigger than you are and cut out the seams on the side. after that cut slits all along either side and tie them together. you could also embrodeir around the letters and shapes. hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my favorites for t-shirt inspiration is Craftster "Smarmyclothes."  Her tutorials:

Thank you for your useful words of advice!
I love Smarmyclothes and would love to be able
to sew as good as her! I suppose it just
takes a bit of practise... Maybe i'll get there one day
