I wrote my first pattern a few months ago. The process was much harder than I thought. I wanted to make sure I learned from other patterns I bought and felt should have more details. I also wanted to take the good from great pattern writers. Including the small details required lots of research to ensure I was putting out the right guidelines and an easy to read pattern.
After remaking the pattern several times, Pineapple-skirt-pattern , it was finally ready for testers. I was excited when the testers found very few changes. It was ready to be published. I decided to list it on my Etsy page. The sales in no means made me rich but I was pleased, not only with the sales but the good reviews. I’m on my way to becoming a designer!!
I’m now working on my next pattern which will be listed here free. I was commissioned to make some little girl skirts and socks and decided to design my own.
