Well, I really thought I had found the program that I needed. It's found at www.designsew.com.

I didn't think the price was so bad for all that it does. They do have a cheaper version, and the big daddy is $399 right now.

The problem is that I can't get any response from ANYONE. I've called and emailed several times. I get an answering machine, and I leave messages, but no one calls back.

The place is in Canada, and I even found out who owns it, but It makes me so bummed that I can't talk to anyone. I would never invest that much money without knowing I had technical support - which their website says they have!
Has anyone on here heard of this program? It really looks neat. I've watched all of the videos.

If I ever hear anything, I will report back. :(

At least one person whom bought it in the past, thinks the company does not exist any more. See here:

http://virtual-fashion.en.softonic.com/opinion/virtual-fashion-327531

and here is more folk that think the company the developers had once is closed:

http://download.cnet.com/Virtual-Fashion-Professional/3000-31713_4-10556121.html

And apparently while running it had to "call home" to it's website, in order to do some of the stuff and functions and the web site is no longer up and running.

So maybe don't send any money, unless you think they still exist, and maybe that is why you get no email answers even?
