9780806948744: Patterns from Finished Clothes: Re-Creating the Clothes You Love

“Step-by-step, the photos and line drawings show how to copy pants, sleeves, pleats, shirring, pockets, and other details. It covers copying asymmetrical garments and knit clothing that is stretched out of shape....Doyle suggests ways to vary the pattern, then shows garments she’s collected from used clothing stores to study for unusual details...I’m glad to welcome this book to my library.”—The Creative Machine.

From Library Journal:

There are several good reasons to duplicate clothing for which no commercial pattern exists: a fatal spill may have destroyed an expensive garment; there is a desire to copy a well-fitting purchase in a different fabric or color; or a favorite garment has been worn to the point that mending is no longer an option. Doyle demonstrates how to take an existing garment and make a pattern faithful to the original?without equipment more elaborate than cork sheeting, tracing wheel, pins, and paper. Assuming the reader is already familiar with basic garment construction, she works through the process of analyzing a finished garment and preparing a paper pattern and construction plan for it. In the process, she demonstrates how much the amateur sewer can learn about sewing by "dissecting" the work of commercial designers. A unique reference for sewing collections.
