Looking for some new fashion ideas for your fall wardrobe, but don’t really have the budget to go buy anything new? You might be surprised to learn you can easily DIY your way into an awesome autumn wardrobe, and not an obviously handmade one, either. Up until recently, I would never have considered making anything I wore, because I thought it would end up looking obvious that I made it, and not in a good way, either. Was I ever pleased to learn that some of the favorites in my besties closet were things she made. After learning this, I decided to try my hand at a simple T shirt makeover. The rest is history, I am hooked forever. I scoured the internet and Instagram all summer looking for cool new ideas to make for fall fashions. I found 34 fabulous ideas I am thrilled to be able to share with you. From sweaters to hat to coats and poncho wraps, you are sure to find some cool new ideas to keep you fashionable and warm at the same time.
This fall you will need a good and warm sweater but if it’s a beautiful and chic one it’ll be better!

This pom pom sweater is so fun for valentines day, or just a cozy winter day. So make your own with this quick and easy clothing refashion tutorial.
Make this awesome look by turning your jacket inside out and then measuring out the length of fabric or spacing for ribbon. Use the iron-on lining to place and hold the material in position as you hand (or machine) stitch around the edges. Repeat these steps to update every jacket in the house for a festive and fashionable fall. Read more about the complete tutorial from A Subtle Revelry.
Whether you style with its matching top or with your favorite cotton tee, these bunny pants make a stunning statement. Such a great idea! Awesome way to also disguise a stain on a pair of your favorite pants. The stencils are really a fun addition and I bet they would also look cute with owls or foxes. I just love this. I am going to have to give it a try.
We pretty much want to put jewels on everything these days, including the ever-classic trench. Get the much-coveted Burberry look by jazzing up the collar of your trench with emerald rhinestones. This calls for a DIY, of course. This may not be the easiest of tutorials but it’s so worth the time and effort, if you are so inspired.
Wow, this looks super beautiful! It definitely doesn’t look like a DIY project. I am so happy I found this website. I need to take more creative risks like this, it’s an awesome project. I love the relaxed yet sexy skin look. Gorgeous applique and the most beautiful sweater I’ve ever seen. I might just have to make one similar.
Let’s keep up the colorblocking with a little fashion DIY inspired by I Spy DIY. To be stylish is not about paying through your nose always. Instead use your brains and come up with some DIY clothes ideas that will make you look like a fashionista.
Inspired by fashion straight from the catwalk and just in time for fall weather, create a custom Burberry Fashion Show inspired monogrammed poncho with this tutorial from We All Sew. This is a DIY version of that exclusive monogrammed poncho, minus the not-so-budget friendly price-tag that goes along with the brand. The fabric is a polyester, rayon blend and the author used a wool felt for the lettering.
This is the perfect DIY to inexpensively satisfy your personal shopping urges if you’ve been spending your cash on Christmas gifts for others. What a great idea! It looks so easy, too, even for impatient people who can’t’ sew (like me!). I will definitely have to try this out for the winter season and then again for some spring looks.
Give new life to an old sweater with this DIY Polka Dot Wool Sweater from Kittenhood. Maybe moths had a field day with your wool sweaters this summer, or you’re just really, really sick and tired of your wardrobe. This is the refashion that you’ve been waiting for. What a great project to try!
Inspired by The House of Earnest’s DIY method, the author of this post created a shorter and heavier weight version out of a gorgeous flannel herringbone cotton to layer and cozy up with for fall. What an impressive tutorial! The process is super simple (no pattern needed!), but it does require a bit of sewing (not expert sewing, but beginner sewing). You could also hand sew this piece, but that would definitely take a while!
