Just want to apologize for my voice on the last video, I had a really bad cold and didn't realize how bad I sounded!

You sound fine! I didn't notice a difference. :)

The one thing to be cautious of with Wild Ginger is that you cannot resell any patterns you make in their software, but you can sell the clothes you make from those patterns. Tailornova allows for resale of patterns, and seems to be aiming for that market in their future development.

Thank you - that's a really important distinction and I hadn't considered it when I wrote this. Wild Ginger does have software called Cameo which allows you to sell the patterns. It is more expensive than Pattern Master, but if you are aiming to sell patterns, you can buy the same libraries as Pattern Master, and also have access to the Pattern Editor to draft from scratch. Tailornova also has quite a limited library at the moment - it looks like they are planning on adding foundations at some point so it's worth keeping an eye on :) I iwll definitely add a note of that in the next installment.

Thank you for this!! Although I still struggle with pattern drafting, and I'm getting better with each draft, and I still prefer pencil and paper, and enjoy drawing the elegant lines, this really helped me to understand the nuances of CAD. While I may not be ready to purchase a program for drafting, articles like this one, and Caroline's, do help the novice like me, look forward to future attempts with CAD. Thank you again.

Thank you, that is wonderful to hear! I still really enjoy drafting by hand, it is really satisfying to draw in seam lines.
