This software provides users with a collection of sewing patterns but struggles on a couple of fronts, including stability. LEKO Sewing Patterns' interface occupies the entire screen, and though it's easy enough to navigate, it looks somewhat antiquated and amateurish. It comes preloaded with 40 designs from categories such as jackets, shirts, pants, and more. You can view a technical illustration of each design, and see a colorful drawing fitted on a model. Moreover, sewing instructions, the type of fabric needed, and design cuts are all included.
You'll find tools for editing patterns, but an error occurred while testing this feature. We like that all of the designs can be adjusted for one's own measurements, but the program uses only the metric system. Unfortunately, you won't be able to add your own creations, and the print option isn't available during the trial. While LEKO Sewing Patterns is relatively easy to use, its limited pickings and lack of stability prove to be disappointing.
From Modern Sewing:
It's a DEMO version of LEKO SEWING PATTERNS CD. The original CD contains over 500 sewing patterns that you can print at home or in your atelier for your exact measurements. This DEMO is intended to acquaint you with the CD. For more information please visit our Web site www.m-sewing.com. No printing. Limited to 39 women patterns.
1. Not many other choices out there for pattern software. 2. Thousands of designs 3. Inexpensive compared to other software of it's type. 4. A lingerie CD is available, face it, you aren't going to have other computer software that does that.
1. Looks DOS based, very basic. 2. Metric based 3. Not intuitive, you really have to know what you are doing. 4. Demo doesn't print so you have no clue what the pattern is like.
Worth it for an advanced sewer that doesn't care about it's kindergarten based looks. Keep google open to convert your measurements to metric and be aware fiddling with the software will have to happen. It would be nice however if Leko put a little more effort into the design of the software. There is no logical reason that this software (which has some great patterns) has to look like it came out in 1995. Grow up Leko, we'll join you!
There is no uninstall app bundled with this download, dont touch it unless you are certain you know how to remove it without one. Control Panel wont recognise it & it forces open a firefox page which wont close. very suspicious
Run for the hills there are better aps out there that wont bug up your system
