My fabric is at the factory! Just a couple of days ago my silk fabric was on the way to the factory and now it’s there. Yay! The factory owner called me a couple of times yesterday to ask a couple of questions before he starts the whole order of 100. It turns out I gave him a size chart that goes up to size Large, but asked him to grade my patterns up to size 2XL. Ummmm, that doesn’t quite work. Size matters!
Whether you're starting your own line or some other endeavor, or just following me on my journey, take this lesson from my mistake: Make sure you communicate all necessary information. Make sure your size chart shows all of the sizes you want the factory to make.
So after a couple of conversations with the factory, we’re all set for my first full production order!
