Increase decrease overall size of garment

Ask about specific settings, like fabric properties, or the difference between the sewing tools. These would be things you would expect to see in a software manual.

Increase decrease overall size of garment

Post by vfxforge » Mon Nov 02, 2015 7:14 am

Hi, I was wondering if there was an easy way of increase the scale of each individual patch ( offset ) with multiple patches selected.
When using scale on multiple patches it does not scale from the centre of each patch.

for example I would like to increase the overall size of the garment, without going into each patch and scaling.
thank you :)

If you want to scale the entire pattern, Shift select all the pieces using the Transform Pattern tool. Then you can scale them all up at once. Since they are all selected and scaled the same, all your seam lines will still match up after scaling.

Does this still work? I'm on 6.5 and it's not scaling well for me. I've made a video showing what I'm doing. ...

Looking at your video, each pattern piece is indeed scaling properly... you just have to let the simulation run again, to get the final re-sized pillow show up. The scaling process activates a paused simulation, to allow the program a minute to recalculate the pattern sizes. Just activate the sim one more time, is all.
