I’m fully aware that a single pattern system won’t do for everyone, it’s just like commercially produced clothes, their intention is for it to fit the maximum amount of people, but in reality it fits no body perfectly.
With this I mind, I would suggest not implementing a pattern system at all, since many pattern systems relies on one to two body measurements (bust circumference is used a lot), making it impossible to fully implement them, one would have to decide whether to keep a ratio or use a body measurement. Another thing is that certain systems are kept secretive, making them open source may lead to copyright issues…
Agreed, one should use either their own body measurements + ease or rely on a pattern system that they picked for themselves that suits their race/ethnicity.
Therefore I’m proposing a pattern generator that uses precalculated specs, not involving drawing methods. If one wishes to use a specific bodice block, they’d have to draw it themselves, after all each system follows very different methods, even in the same system, the block for men and women may use, for instance, two different ways to determine the shoulder slope.
I want to discuss with people on the forum who have experience in pattern making to help establish the necessary fields required to complete a standard top, sleeve or pants. I have a list of fields already in mind which I’ll post back if my idea is well accepted.
