I wondered a lot as to whether I should buy this application or use AutoCAD or adobe. I didn’t want to learn to use neither and what helped me to decide on this are the reviews that I read from other users. Plus you can beat the price! I have other application like patternmaker USA but I like that I can use photo to get my pattern size. I have a Mac and although it’s not built for the MacOS system I simply use the bootcamp application that comes with my Mac and install windows on that partition and then install fitography.
I used to sew many years ago for people now I can again! Thanks!
I was very excited to learn about Sew Fitography, then initially disappointed that there wasn't a Mac version. Since I use Parallels (Windows RTE for Mac) for a few other applications, I decided to try to get it running anyway. I'm happy to report that it's a complete success! I have the software up and running, and I've made several garments which fit me perfectly! I do have a few tips if you are interested in using it on a Mac as I am:
1. Be sure to start Parallels then Sew Fitography - if I tried to start it by clicking on my Mac icon like I do with Quicken, I had some issues, but once I sorted that out they went away.
2. Do your file handling (pictures, patterns, etc) through the Windows interface as much as you can. If I moved files with Finder through the Mac interface, sometimes they didn't appear, but as long as I used Windows Explorer, that problem went away.
I will say that I am a pretty technology minded person, and was already using Parallels for other reasons. If you don't feel confident loading an alternate RTE or switching between them, this may not be the solution for you. However, if you are already confident/familiar with how this tools work, go for it! You will not be disappointed!
I've looked at this software of and on for a while. I've tried quite a few other software packages over the years and have been less than impressed. Given the price I thought that if I could just get a good printable fashion croquis I would be happy. Oh my not only did the croquis look great but the patterns are awesome. The app works great! I have a mac computer and my husband put VMware running Windows 10 on it. I've not had a single issue with the software. The croquis the software made really looked like me. It has been fun to "try" on clothes in the program. I used my 2 credits to purchase a Sophie shirt and Chloe pants pattern. The Chloe pants pattern fit amazing and looked really nice. I'm excited to be able to have patterns that fit me without lots and lots of muslins, fittings, and work.
I love as far as I got , the clothes for fitting my finished profile
I've noticed some negative reviews of this app, many pointing out that the app is still pretty unrefined and I don't disagree, but I think for the $30 plus two free patterns, it's a very good value. I'm still learning my way around and I'm not 100% happy with my results, yet, but they are still far closer than what I've gotten with commercial patterns and Bootstrap. If either of those other options work well for you, then this may not be a good choice but if you have a hard-to-fit body this is a great way to learn more about how you are shaped and with a little time, I think you can get good results.
Things I like:
Add as many outlines as you like and make as many versions of each pattern as you like
The axial symmetry feature ensures the inconsistencies in your set-up are evened out
There is plenty of documentation and the patterns are clear and comprehensively written
$30 for the app and two patterns is an excellent value
Things that could be improved:
Your measurements are not saved as part of the step where you set all the points for the outline, meaning you have to keep notes if you ever want to go back and adjust your outline
It would be great to be able to lock certain guides and points as you work so you don't move the wrong item
I wish you could indicate hem circumference and waist height for each pattern. Adjusting a yoke, pockets and waistband of jeans to lower a waistband is a drag. I "tricked" the app by making a second version with the waist set lower in the outline (see version 2 image)
When making the outline I would love to be able to select a point and nudge it with the arrow keys
Would like to be able to set custom page sizes to allow for print-shop output
I'm running out of characters and could say a lot more but I'll just say that I have no regrets about my purchase and am looking forward to seeing what patterns and updates are offered next.
