Some patterns also have different styles on the same pattern piece, e.g. short and long sleeve options, by tracing the pattern you can then make another dress using the difference style options.
If you like, you can even resell your patterns on eBay after you are finished with them.
POINTS TO REMEMBER WHEN TRACING YOUR PATTERN:
- Be sure to clearly mark all cutting lines and your lengthening or shortening lines.
- Grain line
- Mark all notches and dots
- Be sure to write on your pattern:
- Name and number of piece, e.g. sleeve
- Company name and number
- How many to cut
