Update: LeeAnne has had a quick look and provided a few comments in case listed at the end of the post, so you may want to look at them before deciding if you want to have a look. Thanks to LeeAnne!
I happened across this free app for iPad and iPhone that looks like a nice little design game, called Covet Fashion version 2.7.1. However, I have neither an iPad nor iPhone to try it. Does anyone know anything about it? Or if you care to download and try, can you show me it sometime?
Supposedly, it’s a bit of a game because people vote on designs, though someone said hardly anyone votes. I can see that as it’s probably a pretty niche audience. However, if it’s anything like a real good version of Wild Ginger pattern design software in terms of designs (rather than patterns), I think I would LOVE it! That’s because the previews in Wild Ginger are absolutely horrible! Their user interface is, too!
But if Covet Fashion were anything like I think it might be, I could use it as a design preview before going to Wild Ginger for something close given all the style options available in Wild Ginger. At least the key thing is I’ll know what I’m wanting before I design it. In Wild Ginger, I’m not really sure what I’m getting by choosing certain options cause the preview is that bad.
I hope some of our iPad addicts can tell me. Thanks.
I had a very frustrating sewing day yesterday. In the post, I talked a bit about my habits to get back on track when these things happen. One of the points was to get back on either an easy project, fun project, or whatever, just to get something done right again and walk in the right direction as quickly as possible.
Well, that didn’t take me long! Got two garments done today which I’ll talk about more later.
I’m going to start giving each item I make and design a one word name for quick reference.
The ELRIC office jacket was inspired by something an anime character named Edward Elric wore. You can see from the inset. Mine is nicer, from fake Chinese silks, padded with jersey and lined with anti-static Bemberg lining. Protects me from air conditioning at work. Clasp is coming.
The TOXIC running tights are so named for the skull and crossbones on them. From afar, they may look like polka dots, or flowers nearer, but they’re anything but so tame! Told ya I had some wild stuff in my spandex stash! You should know, though, I start with the stuff I’m willing to part with first in case my skills are sufficient and I lose the fabric in messing up. You wait and see what else is coming!
