View Full Version : What is the best way to go about modifying patterns?

So I've found my base pattern i want to use, but I don't know where to go from there to "add" details (puffy sleeves, collars) that aren't there originally. Do a make my own patterns, or what? Please help. I am very confused.

If its something like sleeves, i tend to just combine two patterns to make my garment. For collars it really depends on the type and the base you're starting with.

... what pattern are you starting with, and what are you trying to achieve? ... Modifying patterns is pretty easy, but I need some pictures to know what has to be done.
