Part 4 of my Make Your Own Clothes Series shows you how to use Tailors Tacks and Chalk to transfer your markings. For many fabrics tailors tacks are the best way as they will, if you are careful, remain in the fabric until you are ready to remove them. All the other methods are inclined to rub off.
Your cut out pattern pieces. Tailor's Chalk. Coloured thread, needle, thimble.
