Editors' review

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.

    "Better than the alternatives"

    December 25, 2011   |   By Jaie_Johnson

    Version: LEKO Sewing Patterns 5

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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!

    "not so intuitive"

    May 16, 2011   |   By seenetsux

    Version: LEKO Sewing Patterns 5

    Pros

    it has a nice look to it and seems like it could be useful if you are willing to invest enough time into learning the ins and outs of the design process

    Cons

    i was looking for my software to be more intuitive. for the price it should ease my design and pattern making rather than giving me another task to learn to accomplish

    "Cant uninstall"

    July 22, 2009   |   By marnie5

    Version: LEKO Sewing Patterns 5

    Pros

    none and now i cant get rid of it

    Cons

    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

    Summary

    Run for the hills there are better aps out there that wont bug up your system

    "Very nice program."

    November 23, 2008   |   By inboots

    Version: LEKO Sewing Patterns 5

    Pros

    Thrilled about the 80 different personal adjustable body measurements.
    Easy program to get the hang of.

    Cons

    Simple appearance.
    zooming in to view detail of pattern is always to center.

    Summary

    HavenĀ“t printed anything out, using the pattern drawings for inspiration.

    Updated on Nov 23, 2008

    The 80 measurements do not work in demo version.... Only 4 work.
