I've read this tutorial on how to make Your Own Patterns From Existing Clothing (which looks really good). however,  English is not my native language so it was hard for me to understand  Embarrassed

So here is my question: Can anyone please explain to me how to use my own clothes as a pattern (as if your explaining to a six years old)..
thank you so much!!

Ruru, would you mind linking to the tutorial in question? I can't offer you more explanation until I see what you've read.

I recently tried to make a shirt from a pattern made from another shirt I have. The final outcome has some major problems, but I hope I've learned from my mistakes!

The way I do it is pretty easy.  I'll just lay the clothes I like onto a big piece of paper, and then trace around it with a pencil to make a pattern.  Sometimes I need to refold a piece of clothing along the seams and trace several times to make all the pieces.  Then just cut out the patterns from the pieces of paper, and use them as you would use any other pattern.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

Thanx!, I'll try that!
