Whether you're looking to make your own menswear accessories, or your own femswear accessories, we've got you covered. Suspenders are so chic, can be easily personalized, and are so easy to make! Hook up your groomsgirls or deck out your own fabulous outfit with some hawt custom suspender action. I'm in love with this tutorial via Autostraddle called This is a holdup: Make your own suspenders. So clever!
Laura kicked off the first of a few installments in DIY clothing items. Here's her explanation:
When it comes to girls who like “menswear,” it can be hard to find what you're looking for. I know that lots of times I get frustrated when I go shopping because they don't have what I want, and if they do it's priced outrageously. There's really no good reason why you should have to spend twice as much for the women's version of the exactly same shirt that's sitting over in the men's department but isn't quite made to fit your body. So we're going to do something about that. This is mutiny: arts and crafts style.
