You can't with a Subversion client. Subversion does not support
copying between repositories.

If you're taking an existing project and splitting it out into its
own, new repository, run svnadmin dump on the old repository, filter
the dumpfile to only include the path(s) you need, then svnadmin load
the resulting file into the new repository. I think this is outlined
in the book, http://svnbook.org/
