I've just pulled the release lever on version 2.19 of FreeSewing and there's a lot that went into this release. For full details, you can check out the changelog, here I'll stick to the highlights:
I'm not much of a history buff myself, so I'm looking forward to see what these will look like when people are going to start making them. What I can say for sure is that all of these are pretty straight-forward, so they should be fun to make.
Also new in this release is Bee, a bikini pattern that you can pair with the Ursula Undies pattern. Bobgeorgethe3rd signed for the code, the design of the bikini was a collaboration with PrudenceRabbit.
I'm hoping for some people in the Southern hemisphere to make this one because I suspect it might be a while before bikini weather returns to those of use living above the equator.
This too is a fast and simple make, so go and check it out.
This is a bit more under-the-hood stuff, but we've also published plugin-versinofree-svg, a new plugin that will strip the version information from FreeSewing's SVG output.
This is handy because it allows diffing between different versions. By not including the version information, you can see what (if anything) has changed between different versions of a pattern, something we use ourselved in our QA pipeline.
Have fun with the new patterns, and for feedback, questions, or suggestions, come hang out with us on Discord.
