What is Valentina?

Valentina lets you create shareable custom-sized digital patterns using traditional patternmaking formulas.
Valentina's daughter application Tape allows you to create measurement files for yourself and other individuals. You can also create multisize (standard) tables.

Here's the workflow:

  • Select a body measurement file
  • Enter your formulas in Draw Mode
  • Add seam allowances and other details in Detail Mode
  • Generate a layout image of the final pattern pieces in Layout Mode
  • Save and/or Print the layout image. You can even save or print as a tiled PDF!

Valentina is open source software. You have the right to use, sell, share, and distribute your patterns in any way you wish.
