    This is step 5 in a 5 part series in how to create a design through a fashion designer's eyes.  Step 1:Inspiration, Step 2: Sketch, Step 3: First Pattern, Step 4: First Sample

    Your final step in the process is the most rewarding of all the steps because you get to see your final look.  In this step you want to take your final pattern and use it to cut into your real fabrics.  Cut all of your peices out first, then sew them together in the ways that you have decided through your samples.  Make sure to sew on any buttons, zippers, hooks, etc. that are needed.  Be sure to finish all your edges and your hem line. 

    Once you have completed the construction, have your fit model try it on for one last time to be sure that everything was assembled correctly.  If and when everything looks good, then you have completed your design.

    In order to show off your new design, it is important to work with a photographer to get good pictures of the design.  If you ask around, sometimes somebody you know may know somebody who does photography.  If not, there are many other ways to find them.  You can use Model Mayhem (where you can find models and photographers), local fashion networking events, craigslist, etc.

    And, once you have photos, put them everywhere.  Use social networking sites, and/or your own website.  The photos below are from the last three photo shoots I was a part of.  If you click on a photo, it will bring you to the entire shoot.
