Copy Ready-to-Wear

Have a favorite something you've worn to death, but just can't part with? You can give new life to old garments! Make a pattern (without taking your old favorite apart) and make a new one. Learn how to copy an existing garment, create a pattern, and make a muslin to test the pattern.


  • Favorite garment you would like to copy * Note that a garment that is made from a woven fabric, rather than a knit will make learning the process easier

  • Styling Design Ruler (available at Treadle)

  • Straight pins with a ball head, plastic or glass, approximately 1 1/4” long (longer pins will work if they are sturdy)

  • pencil and notebook

  • pattern making paper
  • Woven garments: muslin fabric to make test version

  • Knit garments: knit fabric to make test version - choose a knit with similar weight and drape as original garment

* ALL sewing will be done outside of class *
