I loved the tip on saving you favorite clothes by taking them apart and using them for a pattern. I've been doing this for years.

But, one more thought here, this is the time to make it bigger or smaller, add darts, saving the lace and so on.

The great thing is measure the articales after they are taken apart and use those measurments to cheak your patterns. Measure the pattern pieces after you iron them out and check to see if they are the same as your favorite outfits that YOU know fit you. Your patterns will always fit the first time and you do not need to baste and try them on they will be cut to fit. GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY SEWING!
