Patternmaking Service Details:
After creating the design sheet/ CADs, I will make your pattern using a mix of flat and CAD patternmaking methods. After this I will make your sample, measure is and send it to you for a fitting via zoom.
I will adjust the pattern and make a new sample to be fitted. The process may continue for 2-3 rounds of samples, necessary to perfect the fit.
Once the fit sample is approved, patterns are graded into your size range, the tech pack is created and and a final “Sew By Sample” is created.
Patterns can be sent directly to your cutter or your factory – as a DFX file. Your factory will follow the pattern and sample to make their sample. I will answer any questions your factory may have regarding the tech pack, pattern and sample.
Your factory will make a counter sample, based on the pattern and Sew-by sample.
This sample will be sent to me to check the measurements and construction, then it will be sent to you and we will do a fitting on your fit model, over zoom.
Your factories development time will be reduced, as their counter sample should be close to correct, and you will have more control over your sizing, fit and construction.
Note – Liaising with the factory to manage the bulk production process is an extra fee. This includes co-ordinating the pre-production samples, top of production sample and and advertising samples. Enquire about this service.
