Pattern drafting for clothing manufacturing.
Seamly2D is a cross-platform patternmaking program which allows designers to create and model patterns of clothing. This software allows pattern creation using either standard sizing tables or an individual’s set of measurements.
Currently, there is a lack of affordable software tools for creating patterns. Some people resort to using CAD tools or graphical editors designed for other purposes. These tools are inadequate when performing certain pattern making tasks (e.g. adding seam allowance, truing a dart, walking a seam). These programs can create a pattern in a single size, but when you want to make the pattern for a specific person then you must re-create the pattern from scratch. Also, making changes to the design of a paper or CAD pattern is difficult and time consuming. This is where traditional methods of pattern drafting can be very useful. Why can't you tell a program how to change the pattern so you don't need to do it ever again?
