Best answer: How do you sew shorts without a pattern?

Can you sew clothes without patterns?

Sewing without a pattern doesn’t mean sewing without any guides at all. One of the best places to start is with your own wardrobe. Take a close look at your favourite outfits to see how they’re made. If you can, disassemble them to see exactly how they’re put together, and use the pieces as guides for cutting your own.
