Step 1: Begin to draw.

You can draw on paper, or with computer software. Either way, outline the basic shape of the garment you wish to design, starting with big ideas and adding details as you refine the drawing.

Step 2: Select a fabric.

A lot of the success of your design can depend on what colors you use. Think about the garment's intended purpose and how you imagine someone wearing it. Then choose your colors accordingly. Try to blend unexpected color combinations to add an element of surprise to your design.
Consider texture and flow of fabric in relation to your pattern.

Step 3: Draw a sewing block pattern..

oops that's sad to hear. if you have any basic knowledge of sewing, you could adjust the measurements, or get me the measurement around the chest,frock length, and shoulder length. i'll assist you to make a block.
