Patternmaking Tools and Supplies
The list of online resources shown here have been developed for my online Patternmaking Classes. For the specific tools and supplies I suggest, see my list of Tools and Supplies. That page also has additional videos including a version of the video above that is appropriate for people on dialup internet connections.
Indicated below are some online resources for patternmaking tools and supplies. The patternmaking paper I recommend is called "Dotted Marking Paper." It comes in different widths as you will see from the links below. I have included a link to a sample of what it looks like as a PDF file.
Sew True would appear to be the resource most likely to be a convenient resource.
Sewing Tools and Notions
Most sewing tools and notions you will need for patternmaking are available from your local fabric stores. Listed below are some online resources. Most of these stores carry a multitude of products. The easiest way to find a specific product from these stores is to use their search function.
I recommend gingham fabric for fitting basic slopers. Indicated below are some online resources where you can purchase it. Fabric Direct seems to consistently offer it at the best price in the US.
100% Cotton Gingham
This gingham is more expensive than the more common cotton/polyester gingham. I personally would not use it because I like to treat the gingham as scratch paper. But some people are asking where they can acquire this and a very helpful member of my Yahoo Group supplied these resources.
