I met with the patternmaker yesterday!!! Such a big step forward, and I'm so thrilled. If it works out as it's intended, she'll begin working on a basic block from Cabiria's proprietary measurements soon, then on to creating the building blocks for the initial Spring/Summer 2012 line. I'm giddy with excitement, but realizing too that it's a huge leap into the unknown.
I love snorkeling, and can't want to learn to SCUBA one of these days. It's the same, right? Wish me luck!
