This is a powerleveling guide which will walk you through the quickest and cheapest way to powerlevel tailoring from 375-450 using alternative patterns listed whenever it makes sense.

Leveling Guide:
Note every pattern listed is purchasable from the trainer or a vendor unless highlighted

From 350-375
Bolt of Frostweave (5x Frostweave Cloth) x 1445
Not at 375 yet? No worries! You can make Bolt of Frostweaves until you are!

From 375-380
Frostwoven Robe (4x Bolt of Frostweave, 1x Eternium Thread) x5

From 375-425
you can craft basically the entire Frostwoven and Duskweave set - which is worth it if you plan on using it. Otherwise just goes over the cheapest items in these 2 sets to skill up with.

From 380-390
Frostwoven Leggings (5x Bolt of Frostweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x10

From 390-395
Frostwoven Boots (4x Bolt of Frostweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5

From 395-400
Frostwoven Leggings (5x Bolt of Frostweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5

From 400-405
Bolt of Imbued Frostweave (3x Bolt of Frostweave, 2x Infinite Dust) x5
Craft as may of these as you can until it turns grey at 405, you’ll need it to level from 425-450. If you plan on leveling only to 440 you’ll need 90 of these. If you plan on leveling to 450 you need about 300 more.

From 405-415
Duskweave Wristwraps (8x Bolt of Frostweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5

From 415-420
Duskweave Gloves (9x Bolt of Frostweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5

From 420-425
Duskweave Shoulders (10x Bolt of Frostweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5

From 425-430
Frostweave Bag (6x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 2x Ethernium Thread) x5
Black Duskweave Wristwraps (4x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 2x Iceweb Spider Silk, 2x Ethernium Thread) x5
Black Duskweave Leggings (5x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 2x Iceweb Spider Silk, 2x Ethernium Thread) x5
Depending if you have any Iceweb Spider Silk, Black Duskweave Wristwraps are the cheapest way to level to 430 - I included the Black Duskweave Leggings as they are a good pair of rare leggings that cost only 1 extra Bolt of Imbued Frostweave.

From 430-440
Frostweave Bag (6x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 2x Ethernium Thread) x10
Cheapest thing you can make at this point and at least you can auction them to get some profit.

From 440-445
Frostweave Bag (6x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 2x Ethernium Thread) x25
Optional Abyssal Bag (4x Ebonweave, 2x Spellweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5 - Pattern Obtained through Knights of the Ebon Blade Revered Reputation
Optional Mysterious Bag (4x Spellweave, 2x Moonshroud, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5 - Pattern Obtained through The Wyrmrest Accord Revered Reputation
Optional Glacial Bag (4x Moonshroud, 4x Ebonweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5 - Pattern Obtained through The Son of Hodir Exaulted Reputation
Now this gets extremely hard. There are a handful of patterns that stay yellow to 445 but the cheapest way to go is to just make 25x Frostweave Bags and pray that you get lucky. No seriously. The other option is to craft the 3 rare bags - however Ebonweave, Spellweave, and Moonshroud all have a 4 day cooldown (similar to the cloths in TBC) and the patterns all require reputation to purchase.

From 445-450
Frostweave Bag (6x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 2x Ethernium Thread) x25
Optional Ebonweave Gloves (4x Ebonweave, 4x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 1x Eternium Thread, 1x Frozen Orb) x5
Optional Moonshroud Gloves (4x Moonshroud, 4x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 1x Eternium Thread, 1x Frozen Orb) x5
Optional Spellweave Gloves (4x Spellweave, 4x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 1x Eternium Thread, 1x Frozen Orb) x5
Optional Mysterious Bag (4x Spellweave, 2x Moonshroud, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5
Optional Glacial Bag (4x Moonshroud, 4x Ebonweave, 1x Ethernium Thread) x5
You can also make the tailoring epic gloves now as well so might as well craft 1 to help level. Past that the cheapest way is still Frostweave Bag followed by the 2 rare bags. (Abyssal Bags turn green at 445 so is not on this list.)


Total Materials Required:
390 Imbued Frostweave
275 Frostweave Bolt
175 Ethernium Thread

or

7225 Frostweave Cloth
780 Infinite Dust
175 Ethernium Thread

Note that this is the fastest way to get to 450 - you can craft the optional items to sell or to use, but you’ll need more types of materials and it’ll cost a lot more and/or take much longer.


Special Perks for Tailors
Tailors get unique cloak enchants (healer - Darkglow Embroidery, caster - Lightweave Embroidery, melee - Swordguard Embroidery and as well as an easy to craft Spellthread to use on their pants (note that it is not any better then the one they can craft for other players, however the materials are drastically cheaper). Finally tailors get to craft a magic carpet to ride on! Tailors also get a new ability learned from a world drop book - Northern Cloth Scavenging - which increases the cloth drop rates of all Northrend Humonoids they kill!

For those saving TBC materials - you can still make rare/epic TBC tailoring items up to 395 (just about every pattern that crafts a rare/epic item that you learned at 375 will turn green at 390 and gray at 395) however this guide will focus on the cheapest materials to get to 450 - which in all cases points to new Northrend green tailoring items. If you still want to stock up on materials to level with TBC mats your best bet is to craft a ton of Golden Spellthread/Runic Spellthread as they are currently the cheapest high level items as well as still being somewhat useful in WOTLK.
