Garment Designer

Garment Designer

 

Garment Designer for Windows or Macintosh is a garment design program that allows you to create patterns for both sewing and knitting. It includes libraries of ready-to-wear body measurements, or you can input your own measurements to create a more custom fit.  While you work, you can see the shape of your body (the sloper) sitting inside the pattern you are building.

 

The process is simple.

 

  • Choose the size you want to work with (built-in or custom)
  • Select the category of clothing (top, dress, skirt, pant, etc.)
  • Choose your desired garment styles (neckline, armhole, body style, etc.)
  • If you like, edit the points through click-and-drag, to customize either the fit or the style.
  • The built-in pattern smarts keep armhole/sleeve and neckline/collar combinations in sync with each other.
  • The symmetry function helps make changes to the pattern in all the corresponding places at once.
  • Add any extra style items such as collars, pockets, etc.
  • Sewers may then add facings, hems, seam allowances, as desired.
  • Knitters will input their gauge.
  • Print schematics, patterns, and/or knitting instructions.
