Tips for creating clothing include keeping a sketchbook handy at all times, experimenting with different materials and buying fabric from wholesale resources. If the intention is to create a clothing line to sell, it is also important to determine the target audience and to learn how to self-promote.
Start designing clothes by drawing ideas in a sketchbook. Keep this book in a handy spot and remember to write down ideas from things in life that are inspiring. Using different fabrics at first helps determine which materials work the best with the designs. Buying large quantities of fabric from wholesale sources is more cost effective than buying it from a local fabric store.
