One of the main drawbacks of ready-to-wear clothes is that even a very short list of measurement (e.g. chest, waist and hips) shows that few customers have the dimensions to fit a RTW clothes size exactly.  So while it may fit well in some areas, it may be too long, short, loose or tight in others.

That’s why many people prefer to visit a bespoke tailor to have a personalised pattern made from their individual measurements.

In my day-to-day tailoring activities I use 23 basic measurements and in some cases may use up to 15 additional measurements to make perfect fit clothes.

Addionally I make some sort of mesurements analysis to discover various peculiarities that will affect my pattern.

Let’s make an example:

Here you can see the pattern drafted for a standardised customer with no or insignificant peculiarities.

And here is the same pattern drafted for a customer with round-shouldered back.

So, what’s about Seamly2d? I input individual measurements into SeamlyMe, use information section to store the results of measurement analysis (some of my students make this analysis using formula wizard in SeamlyMe) and than just upload individual measurement to any pattern I already have.

That I update increments to fit the peculiarities I noticed for that customer, and hit Refresh and Seamly2d makes the remaining work ))) So, I receive personalised pattern which in most cases will require no changes after fitting.

Do you prefer to personalise your patterns or make standardised clothes?
