Where online can I find free pattern drafting tutorials? I’ve drafted a couple simple ones but I would like to make more complicated (not super complicated though) patterns and designs. Any sites?

    I’ve never found anything worth looking at that you don’t have to pay for online. Buy a decent drafting book, it’ll be easier to refer to as you go.

      We use a mixture, depending on what we are making:

      Winifred Aldrich: Metric Pattern Cutting (both for men and women)

      Holman: Pattern Cutting Made Easy

      Gilewska: Pattern Drafting for Fashion Draping

      Knowles: The Practical Guide To Patternmaking For Fashion Designers: Menswear

      Plus a pile of historic stuff.

    Here is one site that is interesting, weekend designer. There are many different level of clothes you can learn to make. Check it.

    I found Winifred Aldrich pattern making book that shows you how to use the metric system in pattern drafting. I liked this book. Download it free from scribd (must be a member) but worth it can look at many pattern making books under design & fashion.

    Just look for yourself and see what’s online.
