Have you seen or tried Seamly?

Seems (see what I did there??) to be available for Mac, but I have no idea whether it's any good.

I am personnally a member (and contributor) of the opensource pattern making Valentina project, which I use each day in my professional work.

It is free and available for Mac OS (10.7 and later), Win (7 and later), and Linux distributions (.deb and .rpm packages).

The project gathers in mainly Russian/English speaking members.

So I have created a Facebook group for French users, and very recently, another FB group for English speaking users (so they don't feel frustrated  :D).

This project exists since 2013, it has forked in 2017. The original project has been renamed Seamly 2D, the forked branch has gone on with the Valentina name (since it is the mother's first name of the developper).

Valentina project evolves and improves constantly, I definitely love it (but I am not objective at all  <3), its huggest strength is that patterns are parametric according to the use of formulas, so you draft your pattern once and it is usable for all sizes you want.
