If you haven't noticed already, my blog sort of serves and my own personal notebook. It is full of things that I need to know or links that I find useful.
Today, I am considering how to trace patterns. I need to do this for a few reasons. First of all, I have a need to do a full bust adjustment on all my patterns. Second, I have a suit pattern for my son that I intend to use several times. As a toddler, he grows quite quickly, meaning that I will need to use multiple sizes. I refuse to buy the pattern over and over, and I caught the dickens trying to find that suit pattern anyways. Finally, I don't like plus sized patterns. The selection is too limited so I will need to grade the patterns up. Using patterns means cutting patterns, generally. I want to preserve them the best I can for future use so I will be looking to find a way to keep from cutting my original pattern.
So I was looking and I found a tutorial on tracing patterns: http://blog.caseybrowndesigns.com/2010/03/tracing-vintage-patterns/
