I am very happy with this new service!
I had done it myself before (with the same set of photos), but they were not as accurate as the new one I received from the Outline Service.
This new outline looks really much better.
I am going to test it with a top and can't wait to see the result.
I have used Fitography software for a while and have been delighted with both the accuracy of the fit and the responsiveness of the wonderful owner Carol. Sadly, having put on 20 pounds, I needed to redo my outline. This time I took advantage of the outline service and had a fully completed outline back in less than the promised 48 hours. I think it was well worth the money because the outline is something you only need to do once (unless your shape changes) so I don’t think you need to master it. You can then move straight to mastering the software for trying on patterns, choosing lengths and side seam positions etc, then printing patterns that will fit beautifully.
While the instructions for doing one's own outline are clear, and certainly looked doable, I decided to let the professional do it for me. I am happy I did. I received my outline file in about a day, and was off and running with the confidence to know it was done correctly. The price is definitely worth the quality of the outline files received. I believe it also helped when I had questions as they had my photos and outline so could give me detailed and accurate responses. Now that I have my outline files I can make adjusts in the future as needed. I am confident I will finally (after 60+ years) have the best option available for getting patterns that fit this body! This photo is just one of the views provided, from here I can 'try on' all of the SewFitography patterns to see what will look best on me. The effort to to do this will be far outweighed by the ease of making all future garments THAT FIT! (For best results be sure to carefully follow the instructions for taking your photographs. Trust the instructions, do what they say. It is not difficult, just do it. You'll be glad you did.) Thinking of the hundreds of hours and dollars I have spent through the years trying to get patterns to fit...this is the bargain of the century...and the best option I have ever tried. Thank you.
I used the outline service to move from my photos to my custom patterns, and I couldn't be more pleased! I was having trouble with outlining on my own because of an error with the pictures I had taken. Not only were my mistakes fixed, the outline was returned to me within 2 business days so I could get to sewing. Everything I have made from this outline has fit like a dream. If you are wondering if this is worth the money, I would definitely say yes! Like other reviewers have said, it got me up and running quickly with accurate fitting, which is the entire reason that I wanted to use this software.
I have a very odd body shape after having had 7 children. Purchased patterns and ready to wear clothes just don't fit. I went ahead and purchased the outlining service thinking that they would know how to tweak the outline to make the best patterns. During that time I did the outlining on my own to see how close I came to the service and if it would be worth it to use the service to make outlines for my daughters. The answer is the service is worth every penny. The outline I did on my own was fine but took me several hours to complete. My sewing time is limited. I will definitely use the service in the future to make patterns for my daughters. With patterns that I'm confident that will fit from the get go I am looking forward to spending more time making neat clothing instead of making muslins, pattern adjustments, and fitting.
It took me some time to get the photos setup correctly, and after looking at the documentation, I was intimidated to try the outline. Also didn't want to spend all that time looking at close ups of my body. I got the outline the next day and when I contacted them and told them sleeve wasn't quite right, they responded really fast (same day) with revisions. Great customer service. Fast and helpful responses. In order to tweak my patterns, I will go back and learn how to manipulate the outline, but this was a great way to get started. Love that you can try on the garments and see the difference when you change properties.
Due to many fitting disasters (especially fitting my back and sleeves), I decided to try the Sew Fitography program. I carefully took the required photos. For me, it seemed a bit overwhelming to outline and mark my body so I decided to use the Outline Service. The price seemed very fair to me. The turn around time was extremely quick as I believe I sent in my files late on a Friday afternoon and received them back on Monday. Then, I was ready for the fun part - trying on the various patterns. The documentation for Sew Fitography can be found two places: YouTube Videos https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcqbTwVu4VKOyuU8vpp7HJw and the Fitography Pattern User Guide which you receive when you purchase the Fitography software. Both are very helpful and necessary to view/read before using the program. I am working on the Sasha blouse and will review it (and the Fitography software) when I am finished. My first muslin was amazing (best fitting garment back I have ever had - no drag lines) and am tweaking the sleeves at the moment. If you have any hesitation at all about marking and outlining your own body photos, I highly recommend this service. You will not be disappointed.
I have just started using the Fitography program and after reading other reviews I decided to get it with the outline service. No staring minutely at photos of myself (showing every little real or imagined figure flaw) to do the photo outlining, let them do it! And, this eliminates the potential for mistakes in the outline process (or if any do get made, they will fix them for you), making it much easier for you to evaluate how the program fits you, and the patterns.
I took the photos following the Users Guide very carefully and exactly. It isn't difficult, but it does require care and exactness. Uploaded them, and got the outlined file from them the next day. That let me skip past all those instructions on how to do the outline (and skip staring at the photos), so I could start at the point where you put in your own measurements. Note: the measurement input boxes are somewhat hidden behind an expandable tab (see my photos, showing the + measurements tab and then the photo following, where that tab has been expanded to show you the boxes that you put your measurements into). I followed the Users Guide to print the pattern, which I will review separately when it is completely finished. One caution: on my first try I accidentally resized the pattern by clicking on a blue handle while arranging the pieces. Don't do this! Use the yellow handle or the lines to move and the green one to rotate, but NOT the blues! Carol at Fitography helped me figure out the problem and when I reprinted without this error the pattern fit nearly perfectly (nearly, because the armholes were a bit high in the underarm for me, a personal preference. I lowered them a bit.) I will write a separate review on the pattern and the program when I have complete garment photos to show, but for now I do recommend the software AND the outline service. The software is essentially free as you get two patterns with it, and the service price is low enough that you owe it to yourself to skip the outlining!
