    Hey jsanga,

    I need a hand from my make Burdastyle friends, so here I am asking a favor :)

    I recently started working on a project that sits somewhere on the crossroads between sewing and IT, two things I happen to like. I wanted to draft my own pattern, but I didn’t like all that measuring and mucking about with paper and pens. So I sat down with the guidelines for a Tshirt pattern and programmed them into a website.

    It’s still rough around the edges, but in principle the pattern it generates should be just as good as what you would create by hand. To check that it actually works, I am looking for people who want to generate the pattern for their own measurements, and then make the Tshirt (it’s a pattern of a Tshirt). You can make it in a muslin, there’s not need to do the finish, I am just looking for feedback on how the fit is.

    I know it’s a lot to ask for some of your precious sewing time, but I hope that with more work and some valuable feedback, this will become a useful tool for us all :)

    Thanks in advance, you can try it here: http://makemypattern.com/

    So sorry to hear your news, my nan passed away just over ten years ago and she is still with me when I sew today. I hope you have some treasured memories to remember your Grandma by and that time brings the strength to live with your loss.

    more hugs,
