Patternade is a new and exciting project that is about bringing advances in software development to the pattern making industry.
There are many good and powerful tools for designing and creating patterns. These tools tend to be expensive and require large downloads. Some even have a hardware component to reduce piracy. All these things are necessary for what these tools can do.
But what about the home users? The large majority of seamstresses and tailors never need 90% of the features in the powerful software packages. Many people are making very creative patterns, but do not have the expertise or the finances to use the commercial tools.
This software is entirely online, no need to download or install anything. No risk of viruses or other mal-ware, no hang-ups trying to figure out if you have a 32 bit system or 64 bit. It all just works, in seconds, from your browser.
This software is easy to use. Just try it, and you will see that creating lines is simple, adding seams takes seconds. Don't let the simplicity fool you, the functionality is powerful too. Lines join to form pieces. Seam lines can be matched, and reveal potential errors in your design. Automatic annotation shows exact lengths in either metric or imperial units. Want to take your pattern to a flat bed printer, simply download as EPS, the worlds most common vector graphics file format.
You can use the system, download your creation as a PDF and post it on your own blog.
