Blogtoberfest Day 21: A Pattern Question
I saw a very cute pair of shorts the other day over at Virtually Sally.
Sal was nice enough to search through and drag out the pattern brand and number for me - (Burda 9793) . I toodled off to Spotlight yesterday morning (I have nothing else in my area) and bought it.
I'm not very experienced in using clothing patterns, and I would normally just take it home and cut out the pattern at the size that I currently need. But, this time I actually thought ahead (and yes it did hurt).
The pattern is for sizes 2 - 6 and has shorts, three quarter pants, and pants. I have four growing nephews who currently fit into the size category for this pattern, and will do so for at least another four years. So, I really need shorts in all 5 sizes, three quarter pants in all 5 sizes, and pants in all 5 sizes.
There was absolutely no way on earth that I was going to be tracing off the pattern that many times, so instead, I headed to Officeworks and photocopied it.
My question is:
Is it ok for me to copy it if I'm only doing it for my own personal use to save time in tracing out all of the different sizes? I couldn't find anything specified on the pattern, and I have no intention of distributing it.... What do you think?
