        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.

        I 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 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
