skorts!

I used another uniform as the pattern. Didn't have time to cut the original one apart so I used a method called 'taping off'... see photos below!











After making my masking tape patterns, everything else was easy to measure and piece together...so I don't know if this was a true tutorial... Huh

This is a great technique, I'm going to give it a try on a dress of my daughter's that I've been wanting to copy in another material.

Oh my god. I have so many clothes I want to make myself but don't want to tear apart because I love them. Thank you so much for posting this. Do you apply the tape directly to the garment? I'd imagine it'd be difficult to get it all up in one piece. Also, did you add 1/8" to every piece? Is that just for the seam allowance?

I DO put the tape DIRECTLY on to the garments. It's only masking tape so it won't hurt anything- it's not really that sticky. More tacky. I did add 1/8" for a seam allowance- but it's a serged edge. If you stitch your project on a straight stitch machine- you may want to add a little more allowance- like 1/2". Best of luck, and thank you!

I am going to say yes-- be sure to add enough for seam allowances! Smiley
