I started off with the Helen joseph Armstrong book Pattern Making for Fashion Design and adapted the instructions for the basic blocks to digital format.

There is going to be a learning curve, and sometimes it requires problem solving or asking on here.

Ok Thank you very much

Hi again, @Mijo

You will find some patterns on that you may play with, but it will be very difficult because you don’t know how to create them, so how do you change them into the designs that you want?

Here, I shared some files to get someone started: New member, any spanish speakers? - #9 by Grace

And then there are some videos and links in the User Manual above.

I have not looked at this part of the WIKI in many months and I just noticed that the diagrams seem to have disappeared from the sleeve tutorial I wrote. I will look at this and try to make them reappear

:slight_smile: I noticed that :slight_smile: but neither my Spanish nor my French work very well, and, sometimes I need to make very lengthy replies, so I’ve taken to replying in English. Any of the posts that you find on the forum can be translated by right-clicking on the white margin area and choosing Translate to ???.

Hi @Still, @kmf is away for a while. There are a few patterns on the cloud, but I don’t know the cloud as well has she knows it. In the meantime, please have a look at this post and see if it won’t help you:

Salut @Still, @kmf est absent pendant un certain temps. Il y a quelques modèles sur le cloud, mais je ne connais pas aussi bien le cloud qu’elle le sait. En attendant, jetez un œil à ce post et voyez si cela ne vous aidera pas:


D’accord merci beaucoup

GT: Esperançosamente, este tópico: Pattern share website user registration tem as informações de nuvem padrão que você está procurando.

I can’t remember what I had to do to have 18 shared patterns in the shared list.

GT: Não me lembro o que tive que fazer para ter 18 padrões compartilhados na lista compartilhada.
