I am intrigued about these patterns. Apparently you plug in your measurements and then print out the pattern to fit.
(I found these on sewingpatterns.com.)
Any comments you have will be helpful.

Goto "Advanced Search" and scroll down to "m-sewing" under "pattern company." The Leko CD contains all the patterns from "m-sewing.com". I ordered the CD because there have been some great reviews of patterns here on patternreview (similar to some big-4 patterns I'd eyed out). I think I got this CD on discount, maybe because the company is unfortunately going out of business? I just checked the website, and it's still up... but CD's may be limited in number, and the CD comes with a USB key for counting the number of printouts you purchase (the CD is free, put printouts aren't!) I purchased mine this summer, but have yet to print any out. Thanks for inspiring me to get to this over the holidays.

I had heard of Lekala patterns on CD, but didn't know where to find them. Thanks for the lead!
I see that SewingPatterns.com offers Lekala patterns on CD, but the CDs only produce patterns based on the basic 4 measurements: height, bust, waist, and hips. If you have no problems with fitting, and are looking for a bargain, then you might find the CDS are terrific:
$3.95 for 5 patterns
$12.95 for up to 42 patterns
I prefer to enter many more measurements in my account at lekala.co (not lekala.com), use the Free Patterns to guide me as I tweak the measurements, and then buy their patterns using their Bundles or Gift Certificates discounts. I also entered their Weekly Project Contest and won free patterns :)
I also like being able to see a 3D view of the measurements that I entered. After I download a pattern's pdf file, I can log in at My Account, click on My Orders (at the very top edge of the webpage), and click on the tab labeled "My patterns". Many of the patterns have a 3D button that you can click on to see what their "dress form" for you looks like. For example, when I saw the following one in my account:
I realized that the measurements that they were using were a little off. I went back to my shopping cart, clicked on the tab for Adjustments, and clicked on the links that describe the options.
I hope that this helps you.
