    Pattern drafting software is a computer program that enables you to input your own measurements and print out a personalized pattern. These programs draft patterns to fit your measurements specifically, eliminating much fitting trial and error in the sewing room. With all of the advantages of pattern drafting software, you are just a few clicks away from designing garments that fit well right off the bat. In the April/May 2009 issue of Threads (#142), we review three pattern drafting software programs: Pattern Maker Version 7, Bernina’s My Label, and Wild Ginger’s Pattern Master Boutique Version 4. Here's a list of a few more to try. Check out their Web sites for more information to find which program is the perfect fit for you.
