Skirts and Trousers Course

The format and content of your course is incredible. You have done an amazing job at breaking it all down into understandable steps while at the same time allowing the student to see how it will all come together. I took a course at a community college on pattern drafting and am finding your course to make much more sense to me and I feel confident that when I am finished I will actually have the skills to draft patterns. I have to admit I was a little hesitant about learning such a skill using a e-format, but you guys must have really put A LOT of thought and work into producing these courses. I am looking forward to going through the rest of the modules. And I will be enrolling in some more of your courses in the future. I am so excited that I found your website. Thank you.

The course is excellent. I haven't made my way through all the courses yet but the ones I've got through have definitely been great so far. Very easy to understand and put together. I would like very much to do another course. Thanks

Pattern Making Training Course CDrom - Telestia

Hi , I looked at (Pattern Making Training Course CDrom - Telestia) and i liked it , I want to purchase it but I have some questions which needs to be answered:

1- When I finish my pattern , can I print the whole pattern using my home printer, I have an HP Deskjet?

2- Am i going to get an online tutorial on how to use the software?

3- Can I use a picture of mine (a scanned picture off a magazine) in the software and use its patter?

Answer from Telestia pattern making software for Clothes

1. With the Telestia Creator, you can create your patterns in the computer and print full size patterns on any printer. Since you have an A4 size printer you will use the special paper matching feature that allows you to match and join the pages to make a full size pattern piece.

2. The software comes with build-in help and ready examples in order to learn how to use it. If you still require further assistance we can also plan an online meeting.

3. In the fashion design CAD software, you can import and scan any pictures form your files or a magazine and use it as a background image to help you with your work. In the pattern making software you can import any .EPS or .DXF files.
