Theresa was excited and worried! So the first thing I did was to buy her a proportional scale.
We had such a tight deadline, I suggested patterns she could use to get a quick start. And then I wanted the Misses pattern and the Girl pattern to look like they came from the same world even though we were working on them independently. So I mocked up bat girl hood for the child size ...
So then I said she had to work out the boot top variations for the three female characters and send her patterns to me and I would size them down for the child pattern.
The two of us were working so hard ... Theresa lightened things up by sending me this Youtube link.
Here is another short note I emailed Theresa. I don't even know specifically what piece I was talking about but this is the message
"This is giving me another idea!
Trying to keep the pattern piece count down.
just a minute"
So, we are supposed to not have too many and unnecessary pattern pieces, the sewing shouldn't be to hard and we should be mindful of how much fabric we are asking the customer to buy. BUT, it still has to look like the license!
the panic continues next time ...
