Put simply we allow you to sew your T-shirt from A to Z. We provide you with fabric pre-cut based on your chosen color, style and measurement. We also provide any other accessories you will need such as thread and pins. In short, we give you everything except a sewing machine.
Sewing a T-shirt can be a complicated process even for those experienced in sewing. This is why we have carefully understood the pain points of making your own clothes and broken it down into simple steps.We carefully label each fabric with stickers. We draw lines on the fabric so you can sew along it. We also provide markings so you simply have to join them together. Finally we give you highly detailed step by step video tutorials and instruction manuals to sew easily. Think of it as putting together IKEA furniture, but for your clothes.
Furthermore, all the “Ready to Sew'' kits are meant for experienced sewers and offer no special markings or guidance for novice. We strive hard to ensure that anyone can do it, even if it’s their first time using a sewing machine. We also have added features such as stickers, sew along lines which you will not find in other kits. We are also 100% organic.
No. Unfortunately we don’t. However if you want to reuse the pattern, feel free to recreate it based on the fabric outline.
All you need is a sewing machine and the will to do it :)
For several reasons!
In most cases, fast fashion clothing is low quality due to using cheap materials and labor. They are made to fall apart quickly so you'd go back and purchase more. There are some exceptions occasionally, but in general, fast fashion is made to be thrown away after a couple of wears.
Our aim is to ensure sustainable consumption. We want you to have a T-shirt that will last forever. For this reason we provide superior quality fabrics which are OEKO-TEX and GOTS certified.
With our kit you also get to experience and become mindful of how clothes are made. In addition you can pick up a new skill: sewing! It goes beyond making your own clothes but also mending and repairing any fabric in your home. Finally you will not be contributing to the unethical practices in the garment industry. Currently up to 93% of major brands aren't paying their garment factory workers a minimum wage and they still employ significant amount of child labor.
Zero. Even if you have never sewn or used a sewing machine before. We have built the tutorials with complete beginners in mind.

Yes! We attach an envelope with your kit so that you can send us back the leftover fabric or your old Mademyself T-shirts, which we then send to a recycling plant. Inorder to reduce carbon footprint, we recommend you send us a minimum of 500 grams. In return we also give you a 20% discount on your next purchase!
Each year 2 billion t-shirts are sold with each t-shirt taking 766 gallons of water (10 bath tubs). This is primarily due to over-consumption and poor quality of clothes. By making your own clothes, you are less likely to throw away the T-shirt you have made. We also provide higher quality fabrics that will last you longer than fast fashion garments.
Cotton growers typically use many of the most hazardous pesticides on the market. These pesticides can poison farm workers, drift into neighboring communities, contaminate ground and surface water and kill beneficial insects and soil micro-organisms.Organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides. It doesn't damage the soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 88% less water and 62% less energy. By buying 100% organic you reduce your environmental footprint significantly.
There is always room for improvement so we will continue to strive to be more sustainable in our practices and be transparent about our journey towards full sustainability.
Absolutely. We understand this is not for everyone. If you didn’t enjoy the experience and were not satisfied with your T-shirt, feel free to send it back to us and we will refund you 100%! Shipping excluded.
You don’t have to place the logo on the T-shirt if you don’t want to! We only intended the logo to showcase the fact that you made this T-shirt by yourself. You are free to put any logo you want :) Alternately you can also send us your request and we can do a custom logo!
Sure! Just send us a note with that text you would like and we can accommodate your request!
