Getting a custom built jersey from scratch - need some help!


Recommended Posts

I am at my wits end with finding this jersey:

So I have decided that for a placeholder until I can get a real one, I would like to make a custom jersey.

The questions I have are about how to get it done. I have no sewing skills whatsoever but I have a few ideas.

The easiest idea I have had is to make this scenario:

hockeymonkey_2272_169938816.jpg+ hockeymonkey_2271_193197273.jpg= Team Norway 2010!!

The modifications would be narrowing the sleeves and then moving them up and making new stripes for the hem. I also have a Oilers premiere that could be torn apart in an easier fashion too. I suspect this could take up to 3 jerseys to make. I will of course get a name and number on it in proper font and get the NORGE across the front as close to specs as possible. I have a white OG jersey that I plan to measure for size and send it along when I get it made. Wouldnt mind adding a fight strap if the reebok gameworn is of decent quality.

Is this a feasible idea? Is there a better way about doing this? I am not expecting real Nike swift material here, just something I can rock around here until I can get my hands on a real one from one of the players. I also need to make the laces somehow and could snag them from a reebok replica or another gamewear jersey.

Has anybody attempted something like this before?

Thanks!

I say go for it, this sounds like a pretty awesome, albeit time-consuming project.

I may have a solution for you that would require no sewing whatsoever:

Wouldnt want the Norge on the front anyways. Just the striping and the lace up collar. Send me a pm on prices if you dont mind. I will be away for vacation over the next few days though so no rush.
