Pattern software

millie2 | Posted in General Discussion on

Hi I’m a newbe so here goes…I’m looking at Wild Ginger soft ware I downloaded a demo does anyone have info? I read some posts and I am also concerened that I may spend more time at the computer than  sewing. I also have considered a pattern altering course.I live in Massapequa Park on Long Island,and I don’t know of any local places that teach anything other than crafts.NYCis an option.  Thanks for your time Millie2

    Hi Millie:

    I have WG's software and I use it extensively. There is a LARGE learning curve and you should expect to spend several months perfecting your fit. I use the software for both myself and for clients and find the fit fantastic -- I am lazy and do not like to hand alter patterns. You may have to do some manual altering to the patterns that the software creates to get perfect fit but these changes are pretty minimal and are usually related to the type of fabric used in the garment, etc. The company has great customer service, an active chat forum and provides free updates quarterly which fixes any glitch in the program and often adds new features. There are also local User's Groups in some areas -- I think there is one on Long Island. There is also a 90-day trial period during which you can try the program and see if you like it.

    I can't be sure but the people who spend hours at their computer are likely making changes to the design using Pattern Editor, a CAD program that is included in the software. This is a very powerful tool and quite addicting once you learn to use it :-)

    A Satisfied User,

      Thanks Julie for taking the time to answer my question. I downloaded the demo for  WG software and after viewing it I bought a Click&Sew. I  thought for the small investment involved it would give me an idea as to how the fitting would go. Thanks Again for thaking the time to share the info you have.Millie2
