Pattern Reveal: July Issue


Concept boards are a great place to explore design and fabric ideas for your garment, so you can narrow done construction details, design ideas, and styling. I like to do a concept board after my moodboard to give me a better direction of what I want my final design to look like. The moodboard is more about inspiration and the concept board is about getting down to those design ideas getting you closer to the finished garment.
