Did you know TurboCAD Pro is the easiest illustrating software program to use for drawing doll clothes patterns? I have purchased and tried all of them!
TurboCAD's instructions in their help section of the program are over 270 pages related to architecture and engineering. I scaled the instructions down to 16 relevant pages geared toward doll clothes pattern drafting.
You will be able to scan in fabric from your draped doll or draw from scratch with measurements.
I send you the location of a free program if you are still using XP or Vista. You should be able to find an inexpensive version of Pro on ebay. Unfortunately, the Mac version of TurboCAD is useless for this purpose. I contacted the company after I purchased it and asked some questions after having difficulty. The Mac version is set up completely different.
The files I send to you include instructions and one template to help you set up your patterns.
Instructions to download your files are sent within 1-2 business days. I usually send them immediately after payment, but once in a while things can happen with the Internet.
