The importance of proper patterns was evident today at a model fitting for production, the mock ups were exactly how the principles envisioned them! Thanks to the Le Grand Chic method of pattern drafting I was able to bring their vision to life in a way they did not imagine was possible! I listened to what they had to say, took copious notes and got to work with THEIR vision not mine. I'm just the general contractor "respecting the clients' wishes is the most important part of the job description" is what I tell my students. One will have clients for life especially if one delivers on time and on budget.
There are minimal adjustments/fine tuning to a few of the mock ups, the others were perfect! All I have to do now is finish the garments in linen for a photo shoot in at the end of January... A few pics were taken today and even though the mock ups were done in drapery fabric, the styles looked amazing. This makes me very happy, didn't mind driving through a couple of snow storms on the way home LOL!
Anyone who is interested in taking courses don't put it off any longer, the satisfaction is so worth the expense and effort. Imagine having creative freedom to make your own clothes PLUS the ability to make them a perfect fitting reality! There is no greater feeling of accomplishment and you will love to wear your clothes because they FIT!!
Conversely, making clothes for clients is just as satisfying and one can get paid too! Don't hesitate to contact me like a person from California who is calling me on Friday for classes :)
Enjoy your day!
