I know that this has been covered before in blogland. Extensively I would imagine. Let’s call it laziness but I’m going to ask the questions anyway.
What difference, if any, is there between buying a pattern, making the garment and then selling the finished product on and having someone else buy the pattern and materials, making the garment and then charging them for your dressmaking labour and is either of these ok?
I have a feeling that the first option would be a no-no. I seem to remember reading somewhere that if you do buy a dress pattern that the copyright is that you need to buy one pattern per dress you plan to make. So if you were to onsell the completed product, I can’t see that working really.
One more question. If either of the above two scenarios are ok, what implications are there when I want to use a vintage pattern that I paid 50c for?
I’m sure your advice is going to be great!
