Customize your clothes. Transform your world.

Do-it-yourself fashion is the most creative, affordable and fun way to create a style that’s completely and uniquely you. Whether you’re a sewing novice or a savvy seamstress, AlterNation will give you all the knowledge and inspiration you need to create your own trend-setting clothes and accessories. Just dig into the back of your closet or hit up your favorite thrift store, and you’ll be on your way to creating a one-of-a-kind wardrobe that will have your friends asking, “Where’d you get that?!”

  • Convert a men’s buttondown into the sleek and sleeveless Office Corset, or combine it with a flowing skirt to create the surprisingly feminine Men’s Shirt Dress.
  • Reinvent a pillowcase and a flat sheet to create the cute and comfy Bedhead Top and Asymmetrical Sheet Skirt.
  • Pair some ripped-beyond-wear jeans with some trendy fabric to make the Dangerous Cherry Handbag, or cut a few out-of-style pairs into panels for the Denim Corset Skirt.

Not only will you learn to make 25+ projects, you’ll be bursting with ideas for countless more. Join the citizens of AlterNation! Turn your back on the mall, set your own trends, and show off your style!
