Scan your sewing patterns with your iPhone or iPad! DartSide is a sewing pattern editor that helps creators with the entire creation process: scanning, construction, industrializing, and exporting.

Scan a paper pattern or a toiling fabric from an image:

• Take a photo of a piece of the pattern
• Correct the inevitable perspective distortions that come from taking a photo with a camera that isn’t exactly parallel with the pattern
• Define the scale of your image
• Add the photo to the background of your construction canvas
• Lock the image, and use it as a guide to draw the vector contours of your pattern
• Hide the image, so that it can be accessed later if you ever want to refer back to it

Draw the lines and curves of your patterns using your preferred method:
• Draft your pattern from scratch within the app
• Adjust a pattern that you’ve scanned from an image
• Transform an existing pattern from your project list

Key functionality:
• Draw and modify lines and curves freely on the screen with your finger or Apple Pencil
• Move any point by a specified direction and/or distance
• Measure the length between any two points that are linked by a line or curve
• Create a trace that can be used to simulate how it mounts with another part of the pattern

You can industrialize all the pieces of your pattern to specify the cutting and the mounting of your model.
• Create a new piece by selecting a form you’d like to extract from your construction
• Add indicators (notches, markers, fabric grain lines) to each piece
• Define seam allowance sizes and corner types

You can export your patterns in PDF or SVG format. The exported pattern is the exact vector representation you see in Pieces Mode in the app. The exported pattern is compatible with vector drawing apps like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape. Once exported, you can use one of these tools to finalize the layout and style of your pattern.
