1. A computer implemented method comprising instructions stored on a non-transitory computer readable storage medium and executed on a computing device comprising a hardware processor and memory for capturing a design status or condition corresponding to a design pattern embedded on a garment pattern or component and transforming captured design status or condition to incorporate dimensional or shape variations thereto, the method comprising the steps:

  • identifying a design status or condition of a design representing one or more design patterns embedded on the garment component, and wherein the design status or condition of the design comprises at least an original height and original width of the one or more design patterns, and a first coordinate pair indicating a center point of the one or more design patterns;

    identifying an original height and an original width of the garment component, and further identifying an alteration height and alteration width corresponding to the garment component;

    calculating a scale factor, based at least on the original height, original width, alteration height and alteration width corresponding to the garment component;

    calculating a plurality of translation factors, based at least on the original height, original width, alteration height, alteration width corresponding to the garment component and the scale factor;

    providing at least the scale factor and the plurality of translation factors as inputs to the computing device through an input device/interface for an affine transformation operation, and executing the affine transformation operation on the design status or condition of the design;

    wherein the affine transformation is performed to modify and reposition each of the original design patterns to the altered width, height and position of the garment component.
