Hello SVG-strokes team,

Thanks for your work to develop this recent draft.

I would like to re-open the discussion about supporting the ability to define the stroke width separately for each subpath along a closed path.

The stroke width for each subpath would be non-negative, and at least one subpath's stroke width would be greater than zero.

My application Valentina (valentina-project.org<http://valentina-project.org/>) could use the ability to set narrow seam allowances along an armscye curve, and deep seam allowances along a hem. I am also working with AYAB<http://www.ayab-knitting.com/> and others to develop knitted patterns.

We are trying to break open the fashion industry with open source tools and open data formats, and remove barriers to entry into a very sick fashion industry.  It would be superbly fantastic if SVG supported stroke widths per subpath. This will help us define patterns in non-proprietary formats so that anyone can be a designer or a manufacturer in the 2nd biggest industry on the planet.

There may be additional applications for this feature, but even if patternmaking were the only beneficiary then the impact would still be tremendous.  Everyone on the planet wears clothes.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me.

Again, thanks for your work with SVG specs.

Thanks for raising this feature request.

We’re using GitHub now for tracking issues and requests, so I’ve created an entry for this.
See https://github.com/w3c/svgwg/issues/147

I’ll post some comments there.
