"To make to with[out]" is an English expression equivalent to "To get by with[out]."

The preposition "with" is essential.

"To make to with[out]" is an English expression equivalent to "To get by with[out]."

The preposition "with" is essential.

If I may supplement the Great JPs answer, I would like to add that the implication for both expressions is that you're are "making do" or "getting by" with less resources that what is normally required to complete the task, typically "making do" without what would normally be considered an "essential" one.

Is it legal to say:

On the Great Plains, 19 century settlers used mud and grass to build their homes, getting by without timber and nails.
