Resizing Digital Fashion Prints Using Full-Scale Digital Sewing Patterns in Adobe Illustrator

In this tutorial we demonstrate how to preview, scale and engineer digital prints, using Adobe illustrator, to work with full-scale digital sewing patterns. We also talk about Digital fabric printing and its benefits specifically in relation to this subject.

Part one of the tutorial shows you how to import a repeat fashion print, into Adobe illustrator and combine it with a full-scale digital sewing pattern. We then demonstrate how to increase or decrease the print to find the preferred scale for the pattern. This ultimately gives us a better understanding of how the finished garment will look. Once we have the correct print size, we then resize the original print artwork to match and save it, ready to send to a digital print company.

Part two of the tutorial is slightly more complicated to explain but talks about placement or engineered prints and how they apply to the concept of digital printing.
