Well, I am still waiting for my draft paper to arrive...I went from store to store trying to find some, bought the wrong kind online, and so still I do not have the beautiful drafting paper to finalize my pattern. I hate having a patterns that I have to go and blow up at Kinko's so I am determined to do mine actual size. I may be sorry about it later but right now that's what I am aiming for!
I finished the 'writing' part of the pattern, which is harder to do than one thinks! Every details is important and research has to be done again and again. I do not know how most designers develop their patterns, but for me, there's a bit of doing as you go, and I change things as I go, and so the colors and shapes and materials change accordingly. So the I have to go back and re do templates,etc. However, it is fun to do and again a step that makes it so 'official'.
Again, thanks to everyone for your lovely comments as they are the force that propels me to keep going!
