1. Both Simplicity and McCall’s have not updated their sizing for over 40 years. So awomen who wears a size 8 in the store, would be a size 16 in these patterns. SilhouettePatterns has changed that and is current with retail sizing.2. The other pattern companies use outdated methods to construct the garments.Silhouette Patterns uses factory methods to facilitate easy, quick assembly.3. Other companies offer a pattern with only a B cup and no instructions on how tomodify. Silhouettes offers in each pattern a choice of B cup, C cup, or D cup. The sewer has to make no changes, simply picks out the cup size based on her bra size, and sews thegarment.
Based on my projected revenues for the current fiscal year, which are shown below, andour projected annual growth, I am certain that within five years Designer Patterns will bethe new major pattern company of the sewing industry, taking over both Simplicity andMcCalls. My objective is to advance “Designer Patterns” into the most prominent patterncompany of the twenty-first century.
