A New Way to Visualize Your Garment Sewing Projects!
Dear Stonemountain & Daughter Community,
I'm working with a game developer, Playlife Media, that has created a fun, online tool for sewing. We're starting small, with 35 McCall's patterns, and about 100 real fabrics — many available here at Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics. You mix-and-match fabrics on a fit model to see your garment in 3D before you sew it in real life. It's useful ... but it's also really fun! You can browse though looks that others have made, and even share your looks to Facebook!
The concept is being tested and we would love your input! You can get started here (you will need to download the free application Unity to view the game):
Login, play around, and let us know what you think by filling out the user survey at the top. If the test goes well, more patterns and fabrics will be added, along with male and toddler fit models. There is so much potential, we can't wait to hear your feedback!
Sew You is a new way to visualize your garment sewing projects! Playlife Media, a game developer, is partnering with Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics to bring you an online game designed to help you try out different garment patterns and fabrics BEFORE you lift a needle! Playlife is looking for volunteer testers from the Stonemountain & Daughter sewing community.
Curious to know more? Want to try out the game for free?
Click here to read a letter from Playlife Media’s President, Germaine Gioia and try the game!
