You probably didn’t know that emo clothing was a major industry in the late 1980s, thanks in part to the music of The Who, The Grateful Dead, The Ramones, and a whole bunch of other obscure bands.

But that’s not to say that you can’t make emo-style clothes today.

If you’ve got the right tools and the right gear, you can make them.

For one thing, you don’t have to pay any licensing fees.

For another, the clothes you make are going to look great, and they’re going to sell for a pretty good price, too.

But it’s not all that simple.

Here are a few tips to help you get started, and you can start by making your own.

Start small You don’t need to be an expert to get started.

If your local shop sells clothes for $20, you might want to make some.

Just follow these simple steps: 1.

Get a blank piece of paper and cut out a logo, maybe a stylized one.


Cut out the piece of fabric that will be your collar and cuffs.


Cut the fabric into pieces about 2 to 3 inches long.


Cut them in half and place the half of the collar on the other half of your shirt.


Fold the fabric around the two pieces of fabric so that you have one piece in each corner.


Cut two strips of fabric into the size you want your collar to be. 7.

Cut one of the strips in half, making the cutouts.


Cut your other strip in half to make a hem and sew the two halves together.


Stuff your shirt and cowls with your fabric and then trim the ends of the strip.


Cut a fabric block for the cuff.


Sew on the collar.


Fold your strip of fabric in half again and place it over the end of the cuff, making a loop.


Sew the cowl onto the collar piece, sewing at the edges, and pin.


Sew your cowl on, making sure it’s in the right place and doesn’t go down your shirt collar.


Sew a loop on the cuffs so that the cuff can attach to the collar and not fall off.


Sew and pin your collar on. 17.

Fold in your cuffs to form a cowl, and then attach it to your shirt using the loop you just made.


You should have your emo style collars ready for next week.
