DIY Fashion: ThreadBanger

Video Demo: How to Tailor and Fit Dress Shirts & Make Your Own Thrifty Body Form

ThreadBanger's Rob and Corinne show how men or women can easily tailor and fit baggy dress shirts, without having to pay a tailor to resize them or having to buy a more expensive tailored shirt. Also included are easy how-to instructions from Anda Lewis on making your own thrifty, customized body form for tailoring your clothes at home (you use a lot of duct tape and an old T-shirt, so its incredibly cheap) and an exclusive interview with Brooklyn-based designer Rebecca Turbow.

To view ThreadBanger's embedded YouTube video without its Google ads at the bottom, click the button with the X in the lower right corner (it appears shortly after the video starts to play). However, please view the ads at least once all the way through so that the sponsors are happy and ThreadBanger earns a tiny bit of revenue. Since you'll likely watch this how-to video a couple of times, watching it at least once with the displayed ads, and clicking any of them that are intriguing to you, should be no hardship.
