How to make patterns from your own clothes

Last week my daughter Amie  had a little accident spilled her juice all over her shirt 

so she borrowed school clothes back home 

She asked me if I could copy this pink dress for her...Well of course I said Yes!!!  This is how I do it!

With the wrong side Fold in half and Lay back of the dress down on the paper 

Draw a dots  outline All around 

Shoulder part 

Fold sleeves up make dots follow the original Armholes seam

Do the same thing for sleeves part 

You will have something look like this ↑

Now connect all the dots 

Add seam allowance and hem

now you have back and sleeves patterns

lets make front pattern 

I don’t want to waste my tracing  paper for the front bodice part Because it’s kind of same patterns with the back 

I use leftover tracing  paper just  big  enough around armholes part 

Copy  the back pattern and cut out 

tape it to the back pattern. Make sure it match up 

Fold in half and Lay front of the dress down on the paper 

Mark dots follow the seam around neckline 

Connect the dots and Cut 

Now the patterns is done

When you use it just fold it under 😊

I bought this fabric last year from JoAnn its very fun print Zebras everywhere!

I made one size bigger for Amie Hopefully she can wear it till next year!

Thanks for stopping by

and allowing me to share a little of my passion

I Hope You Have a nice day!

And don't forget to Do more of what makes you happy!
