Pattern Drafting: Make a Pattern from an Existing Garment
Cal Patch
In part 4 of this class, Cal shares an easy technique for drafting a pattern from an existing garment – so you can replicate the most beloved items in your closet. This technique is especially handy if you have a favorite store-bought dress or shirt that’s seen better days (or if you wish you had one in every color!).

This is a very good and clear set of pattern drafting instructions for someone who can purchase cloths of the rail. I am out of balance between my back and front bust and hip measurement. Is there a video that helps draft a pattern for this situation?
