Picture of Tailored T-Shirt
This is a tutorial showing how to make a "tailored" t-shirt using thepatternshare.com

This is a clothing pattern that is changed based on your measurements. It works for both men and women (or children, or animals really). 

This is the first version of the first pattern released on thepatternshare.com

Step 1: Measurements

Picture of Measurements
The pattern uses 11 different body measurements: neck, chest, waist, hips, chest width, back width, armscye, armscye depth, shoulder, nape to waist, waist to hip, and sleeve length.
It also uses 2 'arbitrary' measurements: shirt length is just how long you want your shirt, and ease which is how tight or loose you want the shirt. An ease of 10 is very loose, an ease of 1 is very tight. In the pictures, the female shirt was made with an ease of 2 and the male shirt was made with an ease of 4.

So get out your cloth tape and your pencil and measure yourself! (or it's probably better if you have someone help). Make it a team project!

Step 2:

Go to thepatternshare and click on the 'Tailored T-Shirt' image. 
Pick whichever units your measurements are in, plug in all your numbers, and then press Draw!
If you would like, you can also turn on construction lines or grid or construction points if you're into that sort of thing.
Now click 'Save as SVG', and your browser should open a new tab with the scaled SVG. Right click and save it somewhere on your computer.

Step 3: Print it out

Now you want to print it out.
There's a couple of ways to do this. You can tile print it on standard sheets. I know you can do this in Illustrator. Or you can find a large formate printer. Or you can turn on the Construction Points option on the web site and plot your own.
