would be one place to start. My future mum-in-law is a
member and drags me to all the events, where we sell
clothing and her spinning/weaving stuff. I have not joined
yet, but I have to soon if I am to continue working at
their events. But yeah, definitely check into that.

"I've noticed that famous composers in particular hang on for a long time. Deaf as posts, most of them, when Death comes calling. I expect some god somewhere finds that very amusing. It's their kind of a joke.*"
*And course, one that misfires. Deafness doesn't prevent composers from hearing the music. It prevents them from hearing the distractions.

There were problems with the printer settings and after I adjusted those everything worked better. The new version is really much better definitely worth the cost of the upgrade. I now have access to a plotter and the patterns should print better.----- Original Message -----From: ConsueloSent: Saturday, November 02, 2002 3:06 PMSubject: Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] patternsI tried Dress Shop about 2 years ago and had all sorts of problems with it -- it must have improved since then. I found that the pattern markings didn't line up, the seams didn't match, and the darts didn't make sense on most of the stuff I made. Maybe I'll try the latest version. What kinds of garments to you draft with it?
I actually have found that drafting from the old patented scale systems works beautifully, and I use a lot less paper!

I am using Dress Shop version 4. .Their web site is very good. http://www.livingsoft.com/ I should add a disclaimer, I am just a happy user and am not affiliated with this company. I found out about them from a sewing newsletter I used to get and bought the original version several years ago. I used that version to make a sloper and then drafted my own patterns. They have a licensing agreement if you want to draft patterns for clients and sell those patterns to the client.Rici
