Measurement Templates for Pattern Systems[edit | edit source]

Overview[edit | edit source]

The results of a pattern system are determined by which measurements it uses, and the wearing ease, seamlines, and dart placement in its block patterns.
The differences between measurement sets help explain the differences in fit between pattern systems.
The fewer the measurements, the more "average" proportions are used to fill in for the missing measurements, and the more "tweaking" is required to achieve a finished pattern and a good fit.
Interestingly, the fewer the measurements, the more popular the pattern system because it's "easy to use" during pattern drafting phase. The system's book doesn't reveal the extra time required to create manual bust adjustments, redraw sleevecaps to fit the armscyes, etc, etc, etc!

To make patterns from a pattern system, you will need the system's measurements in your measurement files.
So Seamly2D provides templates which pre-select the measurements used by a pattern system.

To make these pattern fast straight from the book, you will need to be able to enter the pattern system's measurement names in your formulas and variables.
Tape provides templates to enable using the pattern system's measurement names.

Templates make it easier to pick up a book or magazine and try out a new pattern or technique.

Templates assist students who are learning patternmaking.
Students can do their assignments, make mistakes, undo their mistakes, and experiment on a much faster learning curve than learning through manual drafting alone.
