      How to create patterns from existing clothes!


      I have a favorite shirt, I’ve worn it nearly to death… so my spouse recreated it using inexpensive material and the original shirt as a pattern. Here’s the tutorial for how to do it yourself:

      To create your pattern you’ll need the following:

      Serrated tracing wheel
      large piece of cardboard
      Pins
      Pattern Paper or parchment paper
      Ruler

      If you don’t have pattern paper you can use tissue paper, it actually works pretty well and it’s really inexpensive. Just be aware that it can tear easily

      In case you’re wondering how much material you’ll need here is a Yardage chart (from Lost Apron) that will help
