Although this particular project is quite new, Roman Telezhinsky started working on his own pattern design tool years ago when he was studying in a colledge.
This iteration of the app works on both Linux and Windows and supports designing and grading patterns, and you can do things like manually creating layouts for exporting to SVG and PNG, then cutting them on a plotter.
In fact, going from a pattern in Valentina to a real garment you could wear is already possible, as demonstrated in the project’s blog. GNUcci, anyone? 🙂
At this stage of development Roman humbly suggests not treating Velantina as a production-ready tool, though, because it’s still missing some important tools, and the internal file format hasn’t settled down yet.
