Purpose - This paper aims to describe the development of a method of constructing three-dimensional (3D) human body shapes that include a degree of ease for purpose of computerized pattern making. Design/methodology/approach - The body shape could be made with ease allowance to an individual's unique body shape using sweep method and a convex method. And then generates tight skirt patterns for the reconstructed virtual body shape using a computerized pattern making system. Findings - This paper obtains individual patterns using individually reconstructed 3D body shapes by computerized pattern development. In these patterns, complex curved lines such as waist lines and dart lines are created automatically using the developed method. The method is successfully used to make variations of a tight skirt to fit different size women. The author also used the method to make other skirts of various designs. Originality/value - The method described in this paper is useful for making patterns and then garments, without the need for the garments to be later adjusted for the subject.
