Are you curious about how sewing patterns are made? Or how some people can just look at something in a shop and then recreate it exactly at home? Pattern drafting is a fine art in itself, but if you want to start drafting on your own without expensive courses or textbooks, then you might want to try one of the projects from the fabulous Weekend Designer blog.

Just measure yourself accurately (but you’ve already done that, right?), get out a calculator, ruler, and some big sheets of paper and follow the directions. Who knows, this might be just the inspiration you need to start drafting your own patterns and sharing them on BurdaStyle!
