Deadly DIY - Sew Your Own Tights!
We need to talk. Okay. So, you know how that Australian company Black Milk sells their bodysuits for like, $90~ a pair and they sell out in like, 10 minutes? And then they sell on ebay later for around $400? (Or if it's the R2D2 bodysuit, $4000?)
Okay well that's just stupid. For serious. Anyone who knows how to use a serger will tell you that is WAY more than a bodysuit should cost. Fabric - even spandex - doesn't cost more than $25~/y. And a bodysuit probably uses about 1/2y of fabric. So that's about $12.50 worth of fabric. Doesn't it just make sense to learn how to use a serger and make them your self?
