Study the patterns you like
Just as it helps a writer to write and have an interest in reading and for an artist to practice drawing and study art, he will discover that learning to make sewing patterns is easier if he studies patterns that have already been made.
When working with existing patterns, you learn what a properly constructed pattern looks like for any piece of clothing you want to make. Most likely, if you are interested in creating sewing patterns, you have worked on one or two before, so use them as a reference when creating your own.
Have the right materials
Sewing patterns tend to be placed on tissue paper so they can be attached to the clothes for cutting. But if you want to make a pattern that is reusable, make sure you have some thick paper or light cardboard to create a master pattern.
Make sure you have enough on hand in case you make mistakes since nothing is more frustrating than making a mistake and not having materials to try again. When you learn to make sewing patterns, expect to make mistakes the first few times, as this is a normal part of the learning process.
When you are making your pattern, take the necessary steps from the person for whom you are making the pattern. This will give better results than starting with guesswork. Keep those measurements at hand when designing the pattern. When aligning your sewing pattern, you’ll want to have two special rules, an L-square and a hip curve, handy so you can make your pattern accurate.
Remember, although sewing is an art form, creating the pattern often means being as accurate as cutting a piece of wood or drawing a graph in math class! Using your L square and hip curve to help, align the pattern and cut what you have drawn to create your master pattern.
