Digital Pattern Making
As everyone knows in the old days everything was done by hand, now everything is digital including the patterns that clothes are cut from. A hand made pattern can be digitized into the computer by "tracing" it on a large digitizing table, or the pattern can be created from measurements. Either way you choose your patterns are now digital and a lot of space and time are saved.
Digital pattern files can be sent via email and saved on a thumb drive to be used by anyone with the proper pattern software. They can't be clicked and opened by any old program but they can be exported to Illustrator for print placement and design by artists
