Simplicity has a few new Civil War era patterns--a
beautiful gown, and some corset/shift/hoopskirt
patterns. They look like just a ton of fun to make...
and even though it's not the area I work in
(Renaissance/Medeival), I still want to try them out
in my copious free time. *grin*

- I had those sorts of problems with the old version until in a lot of frustration I called the 800 number. 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
