When I was much younger, of course, making a garment was usually cheaper than buying it. But now, the majority of clothing stores try to offer goods at as low a price as they can.
I usually tell these students that I make my own things for a few reasons:
- I can modify the fit as I am making the garment, so that it fits my specially-shaped body
- I can use the garment as an expression of my own creativity.
- It helps to convert potentially time-wasting activities (such as watching tv, waiting for an appointment, being the passenger in a car) into productive activities.
- I get a sense of accomplishment when I have completed something.
