Aspiring Designer: Duck Butt Designs




As it turns out, designing for women is a lot different than designing for kids. Kids are essentially tubes with arms and heads and legs...
Ok, way over simplified.
Women have curves- side to side and front to back. Trickier, but also opens up placement possibilities. Rather than having a useable pocket start under the arm, having it start at the natural waist pulls the eye in and has a slimming effect. 

Revisiting the pocket tee also allowed me to go back and address everything that people wanted with the original. Double pockets? Check. Sleeveless? Check. Cowl neck and hood? Check and check.

Oh, and three different fits to make sure that there really is something for everyone. 
My first pattern for women took a while to get right, and my testers went above and beyond helping me make it ready for you, so you can finally have your own (or a matching mommy and me set!
