A question for CAD users.
Is there a CAD program which will allow me to trace a pattern using a pen-mouse, I'm thinking this may be the best way for me to make patterns available to all and make it easier for me to draw them. Maybe this is a standard feature of CAD progs but i have no experience in that dept so I'd appreciate any advice.
In partial answer to Ataraxia's question ,the usual seam allowance for 'vanilla' clothing is 5/8's of an inch but 'Stretchy' seems to use different or no seam allowances for different sections of the suit. You'd have to replace these with either 5mm or 1 cm lap seams depending on the pattern piece.
If I were having a crack at making a suit for the first time, I'd use Glaftex's excellent methods for generating patterns from your old vanilla T-shirts and leggings/jeans. Its very easy and extremely effective ,here's a link to the post.
