As a part of our belief in transparency Atacac would like to share the pattern and 3D-model for this garment. As per our philosophy, this garment is free to download. However, we appreciate your support of our development by donating 10€ or 30€.
This basic experiment illustrates how a piece of fabric is placed over the shoulders and shaped to the body’s silhouette.
Due to the fact that the posture of the body leans slightly forward, the fabric stays in position. The direction of the grain gradually shifts from straight-horizontal at the back to a bias at the centre front.
Print the pattern out on a large scale plotter or use the tile function if printing on a normal printer and print it in small pieces and then tape the pattern together.
When downloading you will get 4 different files. A png illustrating the garment, a pdf ready for print, a dfx that can be imported into any CAD/CAM software and a ZPrj with the pattern assembled in 3D. The ZPrj file can be viewed and altered in CLO.
