  • [26-12-2020] Female skirt weights added.
  • [11-11-2020] Female and male short-pant weights added.
  • [02-08-2020] Female and male pant weights added.
  • [19-07-2020] Male shirt weights added.
  • [12-07-2020] Female shirt weights added.
  • [28-06-2020] Female t-shirt weights added.
  • [25-06-2020] Minor bug fixes and male t-shirt weights added.
  • [17-06-2020] Inference script and female old-t-shirt weights added.



Code works with psbody.mesh v0.4 , pytorch >= v1.0 , chumpy v0.7 and scipy v1.3 .

How to Run

  • Download and prepare SMPL model and TailorNet data from dataset repository.
  • Set DATADIR and SMPL paths in `` file accordingly.
  • Download trained model weights in a directory and set its path to MODELWEIGHTSPATH variable in
  • Set output path in
    and run it to predict garments on some random inputs. You can play with different inputs. You can also run inference on motion sequence data.
  • To visualize predicted garment using blender, run
    python render
    . (Blender 2.79 needs to be installed.)

Training TailorNet yourself

  • Set global variables in
    , especially LOG_DIR where training logs will be stored.
  • Set config variables like gender and garment class in
    (or pass them via command line) and run
    python trainer/
    to train TailorNet MLP baseline.
  • Similarly, run
    python trainer/
    to train low frequency predictor and
    to train shape-style-to-garment(in canonical pose) model.
  • Run
    python trainer/ --shape_style _ _ ...
    to train pivot high frequency predictors for pivots
    , and so on. See
    to know available pivots.
  • Use
    with appropriate logdir arguments to do prediction.

Inference Time

In the paper, we report inference time to be 1-2 ms per frame(depending upon garment) which is averaged inference time over the batch of 21 samples(20-40 ms per batch). Apologies for the ambiguity. Running each sample separately takes almost same time as batch - around 20 ms per frame for all garments. However, note that TailorNet has 21 independent MLPs, so we believe that faster inference time is possible if MLPs are configured to run in parallel on GPU cores.


  • See ./models/ for the explanation of skirt garment model.
  • Thanks to Bharat for many fruitful discussions and for
    library taken from his MultiGarmentNet repo's lib folder.
  • Thanks to Garvita for helping out during the onerous procedure of data generation.
