3D Grading and Pattern Unwrapping Technique for Loose-fitting Shirt Part 2: Functionality

Abu Sadat Muhammad Sayem, Richard Kennon, Nick Clarke


The functionality of a resizable template developed for the creation of virtual loose-fitting shirts, along with its support of automatic 3D grading and pattern flattening is described in this paper. The capacity of the system for performing as a 3D drawing platform and for supporting pattern flattening and 3D grading is tested and evaluated. Aspects of the design work are limited because the sleeves have been created separately from the body; this constraint may be addressed by building the template as a single shape. In other respects the template was found to be fully functional and ready for use by fashion designers and pattern technicians, allowing them to combine fashion illustration and pattern creation into a single step.
