The objective of this project was to create an autonomous vehicle to help alleviate people in everyday situations.
We decided to create an app for both the users and the tailors, so that it can eliminate the pain point of shipping/postal service issues . Also, including how-to videos and top-of-the-line measuring software within the app; and allows the user to add items to their cart and send in multiple orders at a time.
Sew Swifty aims to create a high-end tailoring service that provides an accessible and customizable tailoring experience, in order for 5/1 communities to have a convenient system that accommodates all types of tailoring and eliminates human error between tailor and user.
Finding a good tailor can be hard. Staying in contact, tracking orders and finding time to pick up your tailored items can be a stressful process.
After looking into what Tailoring companies are implementing into their system, we found that some are adding camera measuring software to get more accurate measurements of customers.
A product called MTailor takes 16 measurements across the whole body. The software can take measurements in 15 seconds or less in 3 easy steps. MTailor is already making tailoring more easily accessible with more affordable shipping, more accurate measurements and a more comfortable fit.

76% of the industry is privately owned businesses
