Today I'm going to show you how I work with PDF patterns - I'm sure that there are lots of methods, but this is the one I like best.
I mainly use PDF patterns - first, because there are so many great ones out there on Etsy and other sites, and second, because they are inexpensive and I can just print the pages that I need at home.
First things first - print our your pattern and tape together following the pattern's instructions. I may have a slight obsession with washi tape, and it's perfect for this because it's easily repositionable.
After I have the pages all taped together, I trace the size I want with Swedish Tracing Paper. You can purchase some here. I love this stuff - it's got the texture of interfacing and holds up really well. I just lay it over my pattern and then trace, and cut. Be sure to transfer any marks for buttons/notches!
Now you can lay the pattern pieces on your fabric and get cutting! This is also a great way to use printed patterns that you want to make in different sizes - with two girls who like wearing the same thing, I do this a lot! I hope you learned something new! If you have a favorite PDF pattern maker, I hope you share in the comments!
