How do I do it. Step one. Gathering information.
A start of a new collection, even if it's a small one, starts with lots of browsing and collecting tid bits of information and ideas that will form at the end to my vision.
I start by looking at fashion forecasts on pinterest. I print those and post on my board.
Then magazine photos that i find interesting are posted.
I collect pictures of details of garments that i find interesting.
As I collect the information, the ideas for the fashion that I want to make is forming.
The next step is starting sketching the designs. Some will be for the 16" dolls and some for the 12" ones. When I design I do not take the doll's size into consideration. Once the designs are done I look at the whole group as a whole and see which will translate to the smaller scale dolls.
My size chart is on the board. As you can see I do have various measurements.
