Two types of garment making skills which you can learn very easily are:
- Saree Blouses
Creating saree blouses is an art because it represents you as a woman. There are so many types of saree blouses in the market today and new designs keep getting launched every other day. You can create a high-neck blouse, halter-neck blouse, backless blouse, boat-neck blouse, jacket-style blouse and many others.
You can even use your own creativity and create your own designs with the basic knowledge in saree blouse creation.
- Baby Clothes
Finding the right outfit for kids can be difficult and is very expensive. Even when you find the right clothes, kids grow fast and the clothes don’t fit after a period of time. So, instead of shopping constantly for kids, why not create clothes for your kids and put personalised designs in them on your own. You can create so many types of frocks, playsuits, shorts and so much more.
2. Fashion Illustration
To design an outfit on your own, it is very important that you create a fashion sketch first. This will help you understand how the design can actually be constructed into an actual outfit. Every fashion designer in the world uses the same technique. They draw their design first and then create the details they want to show their design to someone else. Also, everyone is in love with Indo-western clothes and you might want to try this out.
- Indo-Western Clothes
The latest trend being followed in India is wearing Indo-western clothes. These clothes are basically a combination of Indian and western clothes like shirts & saree or kurti & jeans. But there are so many kinds of outfits you can create with Indo-western fashion illustrations like lehenga with cape, cocktail saree and more.
You can even create your designs and make them for yourself and others as you desire.

There are clothes which you want to wear but they could be a little too plain for the occasion. This is where patchwork comes in to save your heart and the garment. You can turn so many plain outfits into designer ones like kurti, tunics, tops, jeans and much more so easily.
- Indian Stitching
Another loved embroidery design technique is Indian stitching as we all love our traditional designs which we have seen while growing up. Indian embroidery techniques include Kantha, Kasuti, Phulkari, Kutch, Banjara and Kashida. These are some of the most common Indian stitches used all over the country.
4. Fabric Designing
Designing of fabric is one of the most underrated parts as it gives the basic design to your garment. If there was no fabric designing then we would have only bold, plain and single-colours. Fabric designing made our clothes more beautiful through its variety of designs and patterns that we love and many times get confused as there are so many types of designs for the same type of garment.

Here are two different types of textile design techniques which can help you design fabric easily.
- Indian Handpainting
From the tribal areas of India, comes a very special type of fabric designing called Indian handpainting. There are many different types of handpainting like Madhubani, Warli, Kalamkari and many others. You can use these techniques and create many varieties in clothes and bags, which have become very popular lately.
- Natural Dyeing
The creation of clothes using natural colours has always been very popular in India. This is because of the basic fact that colours used have no chemicals in them and thus, the body won’t be harmed. The use of natural dyeing has increased in recent times as there were many allergies and infections due to chemically induced garments.
