What's the most efficient way to become a fashion designer? By challenging yourself to creating your own clothes from the ground up. And while you probably already know this means cuting, sewing, and embroidering your fabrics, it also means making your own patterns.
But don't fret; pattern making isn't as difficult as it sounds, especially if you start off with an easy shape. Check out this tutorial to learn how to make a pattern for a tank top that you can then adjust to make a t-shirt or a halter top.
Learning how to measure yourself as well as making a pattern out of those measurements will definitely make sewing so much easier. Not only are you given the tools to create something simple, but a door to create many other pieces as well.
It might be tedious with all of the numbers but once you get it down, you will love collecting patterns.
