REVISION VS. REDESIGN

During any type of design project there are bound to be changes! The average design project goes through about 5 revisions before settling on the final design. So where do we draw the line between revisions and redesign?

 

REVISION:

A revision is constituted as a minor change to the agreed upon project. For example, changing from a set in pocket to a patch pocket would be a revision. Similarly, moving a seam, changing a measurement slightly, or changing a collar type would all be considered revisions.

 

REDESIGN:

A redesign is constituted as scrapping the originally agreed upon design to create a new design. Essentially, starting from scratch. For example, changing the design from a girls dress to a girls pant suit would be considered a redesign.

 

In order to avoid any miscommunication, I always like to provide initial sketches to give my client an idea of what I have in mind and make sure we are on the same page. It’s a great way to hash out the details for a beautiful final product. Remember, it’s always better to measure twice and cut once.
