Starting from the Start.

So after much toing and froing, I am finally getting be back to making. It's a very exciting time and I am so impatient to get everything going all at once, I get frustrated when each task takes so much longer than anticipated. Is anybody out there good at time management? 
I have been searching and researching the optimum pattern cutting resource and have finally settled on one thats a good fit for me.  I am now in the process of starting all my patterns from scratch, previously my patterns were a hodge podge of different sources, but I find for selling clothing online, the sizing is more important so I am trying to be as accurate as possible.

Pattern cutting and grading.

Finalised pattern being used to cut out fabric.

Here is a sneak peek at my starter project, the silk tee. I could not help but have a delve into the fabric shops in Canada, and came back with some gorgeous silks in candy colours. Last of the summer wine, I hope to get these up before Autumn really kicks in. So summery, but I could't resist.

Sewn, folded, pressed and ready for application.

All the preparation done, just need to be sewn up now .
