This is how I design: I imagine something I want, and then make versions of it until I get it right. After that, it can be prepped for production if that makes sense.
Right now, I’m designing summer dresses that can be worn in professional situations (i.e. no spaghetti straps.) My design goals always are something like:
I’m working with a shift shape because a loose, knee-length, sleeveless dress is probably the most comfortable style for me in hot weather. And while I love the ultra-feminine look of a fitted waist and circle skirt, or slimmer shift dresses, I tend to feel they don’t really match my disposition. Plus, they are hard to ride a bicycle in.
