Order a copy of a favorite clothing item you already own.

Requirements for Copying

The original item must have visible signs of use, but still be in a wearable condition and it must be clean. You must own the original item and are not buying the copy for resale. The original will be taken apart to make a pattern. If desired, the original can be re-assembled.

New clothing, or clothing items of any kind from pictures or photographs, will not be copied under any circumstances. Please do not inquire about these items! In these instances we recommend beginning with a commercial pattern similar to the item of interest.

What to Expect

It is important to note that the copy will not be identical. The fabric, thread, buttons, snaps, zippers, etc., will be different. Be aware that the age of the original contributes to its fit and ultimate comfort. The copy will seldom feel the same as the original, even if it is exactly the same size.

As with many other items we fashion, the copy may cost more than one purchased ready-made at retail. Although each situation is different, the difference in cost can be significant.
