Freesewing is an open source platform for made-to-measure sewing patterns
This documentation site currently holds documentation for the freesewing core platform. Which means that it is most relevant to developers and designers.
Documentation for makers — how to sew up our patterns and all that — is still hosted on makemypattern.com, the predecessor of this site.
