To clone a favorite top, you don't need to pin it to a piece of paper. Glad Press'N Seal sticks to fabric, so it can be used to copy your favorite pants or shirt. Just stick it on, draw the seamlines, then remove. This has got to be the easiest way to clone a garment!

I've tried it, and it works like a dream..add a second layer if it feels too skimpy.

Also, this makes a great topper stabilizer for machine embroidery. Use it on high pile fabrics like towels, or sometimes fleece.

Oh, I just copied a jacket and couldn't get the sleeve cap for the life of me. This will work to go around sleeves. Super idea.

Since it can be difficult to copy the seams through the Glad, try running your fingernail down them. They are often easy to feel, like a little valley. Your nail pressure will leave an indentation in the Glad that you can then draw over with a sharpie.

I copy RTW often, in order to have the style, but modify the fit. I think I have tried every method, but had not heard of this until today! Genius! Thanks SO much.
