To make free sewing patterns you must use clothe that you want to copy. Simply lay them on a dummy, the same way you would wear them yourself. Use masking tape to completely cover the garment on the dummy. You are basically reproducing the shape of the dress or clothes on the mannequin with masking tape. By removing the masking tape later on, you will obtain a unique sewing pattern based on your favorite clothes, and all of this within minutes! This is a great technique for anyone to try at home, with great results guaranteed!
There are a few ways of making special patterns: you can imitate darts, gatherings or any special shape. Of course, is better to have already some skills in sewing and in any craft, as a matter of fact.
By trying a few times you will definitely find the right technique for you! Also, using masking tape removes lint from your old garments, which is great. Another great use for this amazing technique is if you have got moth holes in your vintage skirts, dress or suits. It is quite easy to reproduce the original garment using this fantastic technique and sometimes it is even better like this. It now times to make your own new garments instead of buying old vintage ones.
