Measurement Templates for Pattern Systems

Overview

Measurements are what distinguishes a pattern system methods. The results of a pattern system are determined by which measurements they choose. The fewer the measurements, the more personal fittings are required to achieve a custom fit. And the fewer the measurements, the more popular the pattern system becomes because it's "easier".

To make patterns from a pattern system, you will need the system's measurements in your measurement files. Its easier to make those patterns if you could use the pattern system's names for those measurements in your formulas and variables.

Valentina provides templates which pre-select the measurements used by a pattern system. The templates also displays Valentina measurements with 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.
