PDF Pattern Drafting [Beginning]

I am learning how to create PDF patterns.  This is timely as I recently completed my first self-drafted pattern!

I am learning from Lauren over at Baste+Gather with her Pattern Workshop pattern making course.  I’ve wanted to do this for a while now and just signed up since she is offering an installment payment option. If you are interested in learning how to draft your own patterns, join in here.

Shortly, I will be sharing what I am learning with a blog entry…no specific how-to’s, but simply what my experience is like.  Perhaps a few bumbles along the way 😉

Have you learned how to create PDF patterns? If so, do you have any tips for this “green horn”?

  1. This is something I too would like to give a go. I’ve done the simplest scanning of a drawing method and I’m embarrassed how amateurish it is. My initial research had me put off by the price of computer packages which I don’t have.

    Good luck!

    1. Me too! The Craftsy classes by Suzy Furer are a bit spendy as well if you don’t wait for a good sale. I am enjoying learning how to make patterns and having years of sewing experience has really helped cement the concepts. I am so close to starting the Pattern Workshop and will then need to pay something like $60 USD PER MONTH for the software (apps) to make my patterns and instruction sheets. It an investment for sure!
