Can anyone give me any tips on how best to copy a vintage pattern that I have just bought. I just got an early 1950's coat pattern through the post today that I am so in love with and I am taking this to a London tailor to be made as it really is far too advanced for me to attempt at home. I want to make a copy of the pattern first so that I can save the original from harm so that one day someone else can use it too. I have never made a copy of a pattern before, but am I right in believing that you need to trace it onto tissue? Please help!
