Melissa from Melly Sews and Blank Slate Patterns may be my new best friend. She doesn’t know that yet, ha! But her post on how to copy – and improve the fit – of a favorite pair of jeans has me loving her forever. She uses the rub-off method to make a pattern from an existing pair of jeans, without damaging the original jeans in any way. Then, she shows how you can adjust the pattern to refine the fit. Go to Melly Sews for her tutorial.
