I finally understand why these discount “designer brand” big box stores exist – pattern errors.
Sitting in class yesterday made me realize that pattern making is truly an art and a gift – and a dying skill in a world of computerized cutting, foreign production and mass-manufacturing.
Not that I ever imagined that I would take on this responsibility for my business! But I feel that it is critical for me to understand all aspects of the fashion industry so that when I do hire my technical staff, I at least can tell when the wool is being pulled over my eyes…
This is going to be a real challenge to overcome. Good thing that I am stubborn as hell.
