Hi, I have been drafting patterns on Illustrator and just discovered Valentina. I love it but am still learning to use it so please forgive my newbie questions. I’ve searched through the forums and online and still cannot understand how to input the measurements for a standard measurement file.
The first question : When I create a new standard measurements file, there is a base size and base height. What do I select for these?
The second question is regarding the values in the table. I am trying to create, based on Winifred Aldrich’s book for Childrens and babywear, a couple of patterns sized 80,86 and 92. I am not sure what I have to input for the table, especially under the “in sizes” and “in heights” columns. I know there is a explanantion on wikipedia but I can’t understand it.
Please tell me what values I should key into the table under the columns “in sizes” and “in heights” for the following sample values
the back neck-waist measurements for the sizes are as follows 80 - 20.6cm 86 - 21.8cm 92 - 23cm (increment of 1.2cm for each size)
and the waist measurements are size 80 - 47 size 86 - 49 size 92 - 51 (increment of 2cm for each size)
I am assuming the purpose of creating this is so that I can create the pattern one time, say for size 80, and with a wave of a magic wand choose another size (say 92), and the software will generate the appropriate pattern for me. Am I right about that?
Thank you for helping!
