1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Tailored T-Shirt on: March 19, 2013 10:56:12 AM
Hello everyone,
I've just released the first version of my first pattern using my new pattern share software. It is a shaped t-shirt made for either men or women.

You can find it here: http://thepatternshare.com/
Then click on the Tailored T-Shirt image.

The pattern uses the following measurements: neck, chest, waist, hips, back width, chest width, armscye, armscye depth, nape to waist, wait to hip (linear), shoulder, shirt length, and sleeve length (full arm length).
It also contains an ease measurement. 0 is no ease (obviously), 10 is loose.
In the following images, the male shirt has an ease of 4, the female has an ease of 2.

I'm working on getting some more images up and a tutorial on how to use the system, but I wanted to post it up here and see what people thought, about the pattern and also about the website and its possibilities.

I don't have a FAQ like that yet. It is definitely in the works. The measurement that you asked about is just a vertical linear measurement. How far from the waist line to the hip line. As shown in this image:


I'll be putting stuff like this up soon on the site.
Thanks for checking it out and keep checking in for improvements!

Hello everyone,
ThePatternShare.com is designed to be an online resource to create and share patterns. It is based on the idea that users can put in their own measurements and have the pattern shapes tailored to their specifications.
I'm still very early in the development, and I would love for everyone to come check out the site and give me feedback on where it should go. Right now there are several "blocks" based on the great resources over at Burda Style.
You can check out the site here:
Like I said, I'm still very early in this process so check back often to see progress!
I can't wait to hear back from everyone.

One important note: It has trouble with Internet Explorer. I'm working on this bug. Until I figure it out, I would recommend using Firefox.

Here's a first prototype I would love for people to play with:


It's based on the Burda Basic Bodice Block and the Burda Simple Bra Pattern.

Tell me what you think!

So yeah, if it worked something like this?

(Apparently I am not allowed to post pictures yet, so you'll have to click through to see the picture).


You input your measurements, it connects the dots, and then you could print the pattern.

This pattern is based on this video.

I know absolutely nothing about patterns or sewing. It just seems like an interesting project that people might enjoy.

So I need your help. I need step-by-step instructions of what measurements are needed for particular patterns and how to plot those and I can add them to the tool.

A working version might be available soon.

Hello Craftsters!

I'm thinking of making a simple online tool that would make sewing patterns. You would pick the type of clothing, input your measurements, and voila, a sewing pattern! You could tweak it and change things, but it will be very very simple (especiially at first).

So my question is, is this something that people would be interested in? I know there are some programs out there that do this, but if they're like everything else, they're too complicated or too expensive for most people to use, especially if you just want a shirt pattern or something.

So yeah, is this a need? And if so, what would you want it to be like?
