If you do a search on the subject, several bloggers have written very informative posts on the subject. I can't speak for the US copyright laws, but here in Australia you can't just 'change it by 10%/15% ect" to make it yours.
Having said that, some items of clothing like t-shirts for example are so basic, and so many patterns out there, it would be difficult to prove if you have used a specific pattern

Hope this helps Smiley

I usually start my christmas planning/buying by now, but with my wedding coming up at the end of September I have been putting everything off until then. But soumds like fun.

Sister-in-law: Journal and nice pen
Nephew (1): Library bag with book and a dress up related to that book

Sister (18): Scarf
Nephew (2): Library bag and dress up

Brother (7): Loves ice-skating, so maybe a scarf

Brother (5): Kitchen science kit, like making your own bubbles, ect

Dad: not sure
Step-mum: homemade lollies

Step-Dad: Not sure
