There are other supplies you will need to be successful as a Fashion designer. I am adding a short review and links to some of the useful tools here.
Paper fusible interlining
This is an essential item that is used in Churidar and blouse neck design. It provides the necessary support to the fabric and prevents it from stretching while stitching the neck design. It has fusible interlining on one side which is also the shining side — place this shining side facing the fabric and iron it so that it sticks onto your cloth. It is also used as embroidery backing.
Brown sheet for drawing pattern
For drawing sewing patterns, use this brown sheet. This is 20 inches wide and 20 meters long. It is 140gsm brown sheet and is sturdy and will last longer. First draw the patterns using pencil and reinforce it with sketch pens. Double check the calculations before cutting your patterns.
