Tailors tacks are useful when transferring details from pattern to fabric (great for marking where buttons will sit and where dart legs will meet). Handy for fabrics that do not take fabric markers or tailors chalk and they will not rub off or fade. If done correctly they will not slip away without being pulled. These little tacks are very quick and easy to do!
Needle, thread (I like to use a contrasting or bright color), the fabric and pattern being cut.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
