The Tailor’s Templates and Rulers

The Tailor’s Templates and Rulers are used for designing different pattern sections as well as for drawing attractive pattern lines.

Usually, a basic pattern drawing looks like a flat drawing based on points and straight lines. If you are going to transform flat drawings into three-dimensional forms, you would need not only the design parameters but also the Tailor’s Templates and Rulers. If you do not use the Template Rulers for tracing smooth and neat lines, you would finally get a garment with ugly, broken lines. Therefore, a basic pattern drawing represents a combination of numerous curved lines which replicate bendings of the human figure.

A pattern can be drafted both manually on a piece of paper or by using specialized software tools. As for the last, it is enough to enter the measurement data and push the button “Draft the pattern”. However, without the Tailor’s Templates and Rulers of different form, you will be not able to precisely transfer the body outlines to a piece of paper in manual way. Sure, a pair of compasses could suffice for designing the neck hole lines in the back and front side as well as in the armscyes, but the rest of the complex curved and dimension lines can be drafted only with special kinds of the Tailor’s Templates or – if you are an experienced sewer and know the ropes in drawing – manually.

Each line wants to be sharply and exactly outlined, and this is why the Tailor’s Templates and Rulers of all kinds are so important – they are needed to draft body outlines as well as to smoothly and properly draw curved lines.

The Template Rulers and the Tailor’s Templates can and must be used both on paper and cloth. They come into use for designing and modelling paper patterns as well as for cutting fabrics and adjusting finished patterns.

With the Tailor’s Templates and Rulers, you can draw smooth lines when designing:

  • neck holes;
  • armscyes;
  • bottom parts of sleeves;
  • thigh lines;
  • lines of waist cuts (in skirts, trousers, shorts);
  • lines of raglan sleeves (joint lines between the front side and the sleeves);
  • reliefs;
  • center seams in trousers etc.
