So my next or business is to make a Crokie drawing. And crokie, that's a funny word. It?s, I wrote it out here. It?s C R O K I E. And what that is, is that flat sketch of details of the garment, that is use in the industry maybe it's used for the pattern maker to follow the sketch. I mean this says a lot, but it doesn't exactly say if this is a seam or how much is gathered here, etc. So the next step is to draw it out flat, the front and the back because as you can see on this drawing, I don't know if this is a low back or if it goes into a T in the back, who knows, it depends you know. So there should be like a front and a back drawing of a simple flat, how the pattern will look before it's sewn together or when its sewn together but its flat. And a lot of times you'll see this in computer edit design which is how they actually design all sorts of things that you're getting it, any sort of storms, you know we won't mention any of them, but they're all design down the computer with flat CROKIES. So, I'm going to go ahead and draw the crokie in the next drawing .
