I need schematics and essentially a blueprint for a manufacturer to construct my goods, what's the most effective way to create something like this?
Schematics? Blueprints? First learn a molecule about the field, starting with proper terminology. They're called patterns... only patterns.
Understand that "textile manufacturers" (again, wrong term) don't make things for others, at least not in amounts less than $100,000.
Who is going to do the pattern grading? Do you realize that dresses come in different sizes? Petites? Talls? Where are you going to get the fabric (the "goods")?
How about sourcing the buttons, zippers, labels etc?
Do you realize that almost 100% of apparel manufacturing is done overseas these days. The lead times are huge. Above all, know that the only people who will even bother to talk with you are scammers looking to take money from a total rube.
Hate to dump a bucket of cold water!
You need an OCEAN of cold water on this idea, unless you have a minimum of several million dollars and a huge amount of luck.
