Open Fit

open source software for custom pants

Open Fit is a project by Lisa Kori Chung and Kyle McDonald: open source software that investigates several approaches to generating custom tailored pants patterns. Open Fit Lab is an experiment using this software for on-the-spot generation and creation of custom clothes. Our first public Open Fit Lab was June 28, in Brooklyn, NY. Over two hours we created six pairs of pants using an assembly line that included a 3d-sensor-driven measurement system, projection-based cutting station, and multiple seamstresses working in parallel.
