My name is Cherie Bixler. I'm going to discuss how to start a kid's clothing line. The first thing you want to start with, are your sketches. This is my book, How To Start a Clothing Company? And these are croquis, you simply draw on top of these. Once you draw on top of these and determine what styles you're going to make, your sketches will look something like this. You also may want to have a dress form for a child. Here are some dress form examples, here's a 12 month and a size three-T. Just determine what size range you would like to do. You will then want to create patterns. The patterns are like this, which must be done by a professional pattern maker. And they will be on this type of paper. Then, you want to choose your fabric that you're going to use. Contact fabric manufacturers, they will send you swatches and then, you order your fabric for the samples. You will then create a garment, have a garment sewn together, have a child try it on, or try it on a dress form. Until you have determined that your garments are perfect.
