So you wanna be a designer….

LOL! man this is much harder then people think. I see why people spend $350 on DVF dress cuz if you knew what it takes to make that one dress you would understand..lol

Okay so I know I have been MIA from my blog but this is taking up all my time. I am in the last stretch, final samples will be done this week, line sheets/look books ready in about 10 days, cost sheets (hate this part) is driving me nuts! i mean really how do estimate what your “cost” is if everything is based on quantity (for production) but you dont know that until people actually place orders but i have to give them the “cost” before they order…lol…nuts!

Sourcing fabrics was not as hard since I have so many fabric connections but finding fabrics all in the same color palette, now that was interesting. I am tired but I am so proud of myself for realizing a dream to have a line designed by me. Hell, even if no one buys it..lol I still started and finished 🙂 I think it will do well because my line is fantastic!!!

Not only have I almost reached the finish line I did it under budget..lol well, kinda.

TTYS
