Paper Patterns for Designing and Sewing Clothing

The apparel industry has pattern makers to help clothing companies develop and manufacture clothes.  Home sewers also have tools at their disposal.  For example, home sewers can utilize pattern packages that offer simple to very technical sewing patterns.  On Apparel Search, we have offered an area to help you find patterns for home sewing.
The the patterns for home sewing page for more information.

You may also want to check the pattern making supplies section.

If you are not ready to make patterns on your own, you may want to consult with a professional pattern maker.  They will charge a fee, but maybe it will help your project.

By the way, pattern making, paper patterns, sewing clothing, etc., can be discussed in the home sewing group section on the Fashion Industry Network.  You may also want to ask questions to professional pattern makers.
