Pattern Grading & Marking

Add sizes to your basic pattern. Set up your own grade rules. Make best use of your fabric.

Basic grading

Advanced grading and marking

Bring in your patterns and learn how to grade them to different sizes. Create your own grade rules for cardinal points. Apply to knits and wovens.

Marking
