Is there a tool in browzwear to correct a pattern with a fold and close action as you would on a paper pattern? See my attachment below for a better explanation

BW Forum TeamHi Susan,

Sonziry Guzmanhi Zisie,

How does one determine how much to take out? I understand how to measure the space between the 2 internal lines on step one.. But how do you determine what is the correct amount to take out? by just looking at the garment on the 3D body. Are we just guessing what is the amount to take out? In real life we would just pin the fullness and measure it and then adjust the pattern.

Thanks,

SG

Susan GordonThank you sooo much! These steps make sense.

Best,

Susan

BW Forum TeamHi Sonziry,

Ann VongThe previous information is very helpful!

Once the area is defined as shown, can the Slash & Spread be used with negative numbers on both the start and the end points to shorten the piece?

I am working with a pattern shape that is on the half without symmetry.

I cannot get the start and the end of the slash to 'overlap' in one step. The second input defaults to zero when a negative number is input. I am able to shorten the piece in two steps with each edge done separately as a wedge to zero.

The opposite direction seems to work in one step, meaning I can lengthen the piece at both the start and end points using Slash and Spread with a positive number.

What am I missing?

Thank you!

Afshan IragorriHello Ann,

You are correct in your understanding, you cannot close both sides at the same time using the slash & spread tool. You will need to follow the instructions listed out by Zisie in her original answer by slicing the pattern and merging the pieces.

Best,

Afsha
