Since, well before, the creation of my first sewing pattern that I intend to sell, I have been googling my brain off on how to make sewing patterns, where and how to have them printed and then how in the hell to sell them and thus make money. I have run around in circles and come smack up against brick walls. The info might be out there but damned if I can find it all in one cohesive place or make sense of it. I have found tidbits here and there, but it is like a pirate treasure hunt. You find a clue here and there but usually after you have defeated a foe or decrypted a cypher. Once you have all the clues you can some how manage to put it together to find the treasure (oh, right...after you travel on a harrowing journey to X marks the spot). I have some clues but definitely not all. And as I continue to figure it all out, I decided to lay a virtual bread crumb trail in case 2 things happen 1) I figure it all out & 2) someone else is facing the same battle. I will endeavor to update regularly (by regular, I mean when I have new info) and share ALL the details. Hopefully in the end it will be a Idiot's guide to Sewing Pattern Making, Printing and Selling.
