MS episode 118:: Melissa Mendez Design Studio

Following your heart can be risky sometimes but Melissa Mendez did just that when she decided to leave the corporate world to go out on her own. I so enjoyed chatting with Melissa about all things business and patterns. I have always wanted to know more about designing clothing patterns because it looks so difficult to me. I enjoyed hearing Melissa’s process and also how she could helps any listeners who want to have their own pattern line. I am not the best at writing patterns and working on the technical part of things but that is where someone like Melissa could help. She also has a great podcast I think you will enjoy as well.
