Line of given length intersecting with a curve

Hi,

My pattern drafting method (Rundschau: Muller & Sohn) uses a line of a certain length (in this case the shoulder length), starting from a fixed point on one curve and ending on a certain point on another curve. The point can be anywhere on that other curve as long as the length is the length needed. How do I do this in Seamly?

I managed to draw the two curves, and used segment an arc to place the first, non variable, point (A30) on the lower arc. How do I proceed to get a line with a given length to intersect with the curve above it (A31)? Right now, the length isnâ€™t correct and I need a method that will do this every time the pattern will be â€śgradedâ€ť with new shoulder length measurements.

Maybe @KarenC can help, as I noticed she has drawn a jacket body using Muller & Sohn?

Hi,

Did you use arcs to draw those curves? I would use arc in point A30 with shoulderlength as radius, and after that â€śpoint of intersection arcsâ€ť (under the arc functions) to get to point A31, then connect those points with â€śline between pointsâ€ť (under the line functions) (I used a bezier in my drawing).

Yes, I love Muller & Sohn! It was used in the fashion school I went to.

Canâ€™t speak for the jacket book yet, but the women pants book is the best draft book I have ever seen. Highly recommend for made to measure as it actually talks about how to alter for different bodies. Not just the RTW sizes.

I must really find a copy of that one. I have a daughter who is petite size with an hour glass shape - a very small middle. I really battle to fit the jeans on her everywhere
