Never directly cut in your patern paper. Use tracing paper to trace your pieces and cut them in that. It will make your patern last longer and also if your size change you will still able to make the model. I know you posted this a long time ago I just wanted to give a little advice :)

it's honestly the best and the cheapeast method for a pattern that will last. So yeah Never cut the partern directly, cut in the copy!

Brilliant.
The only pattern I've ever done anything to keep and reuse is a hairband that I duct-taped the back. ^^;

Thank you! Also your idea is very smart, using duct tape for a pattern it will make it last quite along time :D

Lovely idea!! I'm going to use this; corset making is really hard on tissue paper patterns!

Sorry for the late response but that is super true! If I am lazy and want to re-use a pattern I do this but if I hate that pattern then it gets a rippin' and tearin'

And I know that many people have already brought this up, but how do you use this method on multi-sized pattern paper?

Hmm, nice idea. :) You would need to store them in a bit of a bigger pouch, though. If you just dropped the original pouch in with it, you wouldn't lose the pattern number or required yards of fabric. :D

You are so right!
I am usually lazy and lose my pattern packages hahahaha. SO most of the time its easier to write it on the acutal pattern just incase!

hello, super seemed strange that cuts the mold base:ambulance: and could not find first and recently photocopying a photocopy molderia pretended to be part of or directly traced with carbon paper molds :crying: poor magazines.
or can you got several hmmm ...:O_o:
good your explanation seemed great, but do not agree with the idea of cutting the magazines that way. at least I was always taught in other ways.

:crazy:

You should never iron paper patterns especially if there is cotton in the paper ...it shrinks the size then the pattern will be smaller than what is should be (Ive tried to do that and I got yelled at by my pattern/sewing teacher.) Good idea just saying the size changes when the pattern is ironed

BijousCosplay Featured By Owner May 6, 2010  Student Artisan Crafter
I don't know about that because I never had probelms with my pattern shrinking ~_^

but if it makes people more comfortable not to iron them then don't.

Interesting idea. If you're only making one piece, it certainly sounds like a good way to keep track of which is which. :lol:

When I'm sewing I've always found it a bit more economically feasible to use chalk or wax transfer paper and a tracing wheel, then go over the lines with a disappearing or washable marker. It certainly takes a lot longer, but is useful for multiple uses of the pattern. =p

I have one question about this very interesting tutorial :)

You have a lot of sizes in the burda, vogue... patterns. How do you manage it? Do you chose one size? or do you keep any size on the final fabric-pattern?
And with a multi-size, how do you manage to reproduce one size? With the thickness of the fabric+interfacing, it seems difficult.

BijousCosplay Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2010  Student Artisan Crafter
Ok I was thinking the same thing when I was creating this tutorial XD.
With the vogue patterns I had did it with just one size since it was only going to be used a couple of times in one of my fashion classes.

You know I am going to make another tutorial about mulit-sized patterns since it will answer your question better than I can ;D

Interesting. I have always used building plastic when using bought patterns. (That thick see-through stuff used for floor protection when painting and renovating)

Easy to transfer, durable and cheap. =)

Indeed, the plastic is cheaper than the interfacing :)

Very nice! Thank you for your tutorials.

Camera tip - when you're trying to photograph something up close and get the detail, you have to have it on the close setting (the flower icon) or else it will always be blurry! Hope it works for you!

Whoa!! I never would have thought of attaching a pattern to actual fabric. I've thought of tracing the pattern onto poster board, but actual fabric pattern pieces are sure never to tear or anything, EVER. O_O
