For educational purposes and to illustrate the design features in Sewist CAD, users create Styleboards featuring RTW garments and sewing pattern designs. 

Styleboards are a good starting point for a creative process and can serve as a great educational asset for understanding pattern drafting better.

The sewing designs in styleboards are not an intentional reengineering of a pattern and will result in garments that will be similar, but somewhat differ in details, style lines, wearing ease, etc. It is recommended to get a free preview of a pattern and to estimate the length and the width of the pattern blocks and the style lines.

For example, this styleboard based on an RTW garment suggests a similar style with more modest flare of the skirt and a decorative princess seam.
