Modern graph-analytic methods of the pattern block making are based on the limited number of body sizes varied from 5 to 15 ones. Such small number of body sizes is enough for the basic block lines drawing and calculating some lines length belonging to the typical classification of bodies. If we use these methods for the full range of the body types with all possible sizes and heights, we will meet the difficulty in getting the balanced and good fitting clothes. The features of real bodies require the correction of the equations and the new manipulations adding for the block shaping. By means of the bodyscanning technology we can get new body sizes to improve the block patterns. We created the technology how to adopt the block pattern made by any method to the real body morphology.
