Creating a pattern by choosing design elements
Sewist CAD Mix and Match Designer works hierarchically. This means that you need to select the option you like at every step, and the software takes you to the next selection or provides you with a pattern.
For example, when designing a dress, the system will offer to choose:
- Type of dress (standard, raglan, straps, wrap, 1-shoulder, creative, etc)
- Collar (if applicable)
- Front closure (buttons to hem, to waist, polo, zipper, etc)
- Silhouette (fitted dresses with or without waist seam, A-line dresses, etc)
- Front design
- Back design
At every step you will see the design elements that you have already selected on top, and the available options below. Click the option you like to advance.
For example, by choosing
Dress - Semi-fitted - Knee length - Regular armholes - Jewel neckline - Peter Pan collar - No front closure - Dress with waist seam - Straight skirt - Front shoulder and waist darts - Back waist dart - 1/8 sleeve
we arrive to pattern #1776960
In case you would like to edit the selection, open the top tab and hover the design elements. When use the pencil icons where available to change the design elements.
For example, we can change knee length to ankle length as follows:
The system will regenerate the pattern, and its number will change:
