How To Clone Your Favorite Clothes & Save Money

Do you have a favorite piece you would love to duplicate? Learn to create patterns and clone your existing clothes with this easy video tutorial. You’ll love the results.

We all have those go to pieces that we literally wear to death. They are our old faithful favorites and we wish we had bought them in every single color. We certainly know how that feels.

Well now, rather than buy multiple colors when you purchase, we show you how you can create your own patterns from existing clothes. It’s like cloning your wardrobe and we love the idea.

Think of the money you will save and the fun you can have when you can create your own custom pieces. It’s best to start before your item gets too old or tired and once you’ve created your pattern, you’ll be able to keep reusing it.

We’ve included a video tutorial to step you through the process and you’ll see that you don’t need any advanced sewing skills. There’s no need to unpick stitches, or take your item apart. The Blogger has used a tank top as her example. Once you learn the basics, you will be able to do this for as many items as you like.

Create Patterns From Existing Clothes

via All Free Sewing

The Creator recommends that you start off simply with an easy piece. A favorite top with simple lines is ideal. Look for something that does not have complicated pleats or extra details. That’s why a T-Shirt, Tunic or Tank Top is perfect for your first project.

A Tank Top in particular, is a good beginner’s project as there are no sleeves required. Her other tip is that you start off by making a muslin version of your top rather than using an expensive fabric.
