Fashion Design Production Checklist for Manufacturing: Successful Fashion Designer Podcast Interview with Abbie Ellis of Stitch Method by Sew Heidi

SFD013: Clothing Line Production: The Step by Step Process for Fashion Designers

July 31, 2017

Learn the step by step process to clothing line production and the critical parts to think about like: how long it takes to go from idea to finished product, how much to budget, and whether you should manufacture locally or offshore / overseas.

In this episode I’m chatting with Abbie Ellis, co-founder of Stitch Method – a Chicago fashion agency that helps you DEFINE your market, DEVELOP your product and DELIVER it to your customers. In the interview, she walks through a step by step overview of the production process, how to work backwards from costing and budgeting to design, and why a tech pack is essential for every product, no matter how simple or where you’re manufacturing.



You will learn:

  • How long it takes to go from idea to production (hint: it’s longer than you think!)
  • How much you should budget to get your design into production
  • How to know whether you should manufacture overseas or locally
  • A step by step walk through of the production process from start to finish
  • Why your factory is one of your most valuable resources
