Ideas to transform masculine clothes to femenine ones

Recommended Posts

Natasha

The title is pretty self explanatory.

I want to experiment with clothes (having my own clothes that fit my body), but still don't manage to find the courage to buy female clothes.

 

So as a work around, for experimenting at home, I was thinking that maybe I could transform some of my masculine clothes or buy some and transform them at home to fit my needs while practicing a bit of sewing, which I would like to learn.

 

For now I have transformed some boxers to look like panties. It was entertaining to do and they made me feel quite liberated while wearing them. For top underwear I still don't know how to do it though.

 

Also, I was thinking about buying aprons and transform them to skirts and dresses. I got the idea after some experimentation with an old apron I had at home and it actually looked quite well.

 

Does anyone have other ideas?

 

Thanks in advance.

Over the years I would alway alter my jeans to fit my body better since I liked them fitted.  I remember my therapist asking at my first appointment if I was wearing women's clothing.  You can alter shirts as well to shorten the sleeves and take in the sides a little.  Look at how women's clothing is shaped and you can see the differences.  Sewing can be rewarding once you get a hold on how to do it correctly.

I have several jean skirts that were cut and sewn from worn pants.  They are amongst my favorites but i'm sure they need a strong machine to make.  

You can also make some pretty extreme cutoffs but most women wouldn't ever wear them.

 

Hugs,

I have transformed shirts in the past, taking in the waist to give a more feminine tailored look. Sewing really came into it's own though when adjusting female clothing to fit better. I have also designed and made bikini bottoms which, although looking feminine, fit the tucked male anatomy better as they have the inbuilt strength that normal bikini bottoms don't have.

I’m making some skirts out of some of my male jeans. But I did realize one thing, advantage of using male clothes is I will actually have pockets.

Different sized A-shirts are easy to use as tank tops, skirts, dresses and even night gowns. They are clingy and not thick. I would pull them up around my hips and they would be instant skirts, ranging from mini, medium and maxi. Using the 2xl and 3xl are instant  dresses. Since you can sew, you could alter them to whatever you want. Extremely versatile.

      We have a naughty word filter that takes care of most obscenities. F bombs will earn you a rap on the knuckles with a ruler as will the common word for feces. It might be a good idea to double check what you have written before hitting the submit tab   MaryEllen

      am i allowed to swear on here? i dont swear alot, but sometimes it just comes naturally and i have to remove it or block it.

      I always shave mine, but they just go hairy again. Still an inconvenience to have to shave, but to me it is much better than the horrible black thick hairs everywhere. They're my main cause for dysphoria.

      hi, i keep having thoughts that i'm not trans, even though i know that i am. i think its influenced by some of my family and other people that i know, who try to deny it. is there any way to stop these thoughts and reassure myself?
    • AnnaD
      thats just ridiculous to be honest, i already hate schools stopping students from wearing certain clothes (unless theyre offensive) or having certain hair etc... but when they kick a student out just for something that they can't change, its too much.

      i'm only out to a few people so far, but when i'm eventually out fully, i see theres quite a lot for me to look forwards to. i know that it takes a lot of pressure off. 👍

      So a lot of threads here are about the challenges of coming out and the such. One thing in all the therapy I have done over and over, is that we should try and look for good things. Now, their are struggles, and the other posts serve functions in helping people understand what they are about to face, and how they might deal with it. But, I thought it would be cool if we had a list of things from people of all the things that make them smile, or have bouts of joy that can only occur because they are out! For me: -When someone calls me Mackenzie or she/her it makes me feel good.  -When I see a dress that looks wonderful, I get to say, "Yeah, I am going to buy that" instead of "Damn, I wish I could get that." -The look of my body when it is hairless, and I am wearing my feminine clothing, and I see a women in front of me in the mirror.   Those are just the tip of the ice burgs! Share yours, and lets couple the advice in this forum with some highlights and silver linings!

      this is actually [messed] up (not sure if swearing is allowed here so i've blocked it out)

      this is a long chain of replies

      sorry this is quite a bit late, but yes, a nurse should understand. the nurses in my school are great, but i know some teachers who are just plain ignorant. at least your friend Will and your teacher is supportive, its good to have friends.

      you're basically going through another puberty, so you might feel a bit strange. a needle is still a small price to pay for your correct hormones 👍

      that's a nice poem, well done 👍

      I was exhausted after the movie Endtime I went to bed right away, actually sleeping til 5am. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I drove to a 24hr Mexican food drive through and bought a breakfast burrito, and drove to a drive thu Starbucks, 😂🚙🌯☕️.  Then the a/c technician called early, amazing, so I had to 🚙💨 over to my friends house to help. She doesn’t like to home alone with technicians, I don’t mind. That took a while. Then dropped an electric razor for my dad, then shopping for groceries, made it out of Costco with spending over $100, then finally back home to eat lunch.

      My breast forms became uncomfortable pretty fast when I began HRT.  Charlize idea about the "adds one size" type of silicone enhancers did work for a time as well.  Another product that I used are called petals which have s sticky silicone  surface on one side that keeps the nipples from being as obvious when you are not wearing a bra.  An old riddle that I have posted here a time or two that does have truth to it: What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF.    I have maxed out (after 10 years) at a B and find the front closing bras to work better for me.  Part of my tissue is under my arms and the Front Close pushes that forward.
