Do you need patterns to make clothes?
A necessary component in design, a pattern is the base level template for every item of clothing. However, as necessary as it is to fashion design, it is a challenging and very technical aspect of the process.
How can I make a pattern?
There are five methods for making your own patterns:
- Pattern drafting with measurements.
- Clone existing clothes from your closet by tracing them.
- Deconstructing ready made clothes.
- Developing a block or commercial sewing pattern.
- Draping on the stand.
