Fellow sewcialist Erica Schmitz has launched a KickStarter campaign today for MyBodyModel, technology that will make fashion sketching templates (croquis) to your measurements.
I love MyBodyModel's mission, create body-positive design tools for garment makers and designers. I volunteered to be a tester for MyBodyModel, along with a group of experienced sewers, knitters, and designers who will test the croquis builder software and user interface.
Here's what Erica says about MyBodyModel's Kickstarter campaign:
"Kickstarting today! @MyBodyModel is creating a web app to make real-body sketch templates to your measurements. Because every body is different. Getting lots of backers early on Day 1 is the most important predictor of Kickstarter success. Thank you for your help to make MyBodyModel a reality!"
All backers will get early access to the MyBodyModel Beta website. You will be able to make and download your own croquis, made to your measurements. You can print your croquis on paper, and sketch your designs by hand. Or import your croquis image into your favorite sketching app or illustration software.
Go check out the Kickstarter and consider supporting your fellow sewcialist in developing this incredibly useful tool!
