This presentation invites developers to help create a suite of open source software to create and modify clothing patterns in open data formats to match an individual’s body measurement and generate customized patterns as printable files. Current applications are proprietary, do not interoperate, and are expensive. An open source solution would enable individual and small label designers to create and provide custom sized patterns without purchasing high-cost proprietary software.
