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
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!
