Professional advice from initial to end product.
This is the foundation of clothing. It's the template from which the parts of a garment are traced onto fabric before being cut out and sewn together. Patterns are usually made of paper at the beginning stage and then usually transferred to a sturdier material once finalised such as cardboard or plastic as they need to be more robust to withstand constant use.
The Toile is a test garment generally sewn from the same material or similar to the final fabric. Toiling is vital when making a new piece, it allows you to see exactly how the final garment will look and fit. It is also the stage that allows for alterations or changes to the design.
Making your first sample is a huge step. The sample is used to test against the real world. If you like it, you'd generally take this sample and test it on a fit model for comfort and wearability. In most cases it is the piece used for product or promo shoots.
