If you have a garment that you love, one that you’d like more of, you can use this way of taking a pattern from it without ripping the garment apart. Based on the classic “rub-off” technique, the innovation here is to use buff-colored organza (which is see-through), to retrieve the information from the garment. Once this information is retrieved, you will learn how to transfer it to paper, and then to create the corollary pieces, to produce a working pattern ready for construction. Also covered is how to find grainlines when the fabric doesn’t show them readily. All in all, this is a useful book for studying garment construction, as well as making copies of a loved piece.
