HOW THIS WORKS

 

All the services are by the hour. And based on the project requirements, I can give you an estimate.

Pattern Making

You will receive:

  1. Printable “Layered” PDF sewing pattern in A4/US letter print-at-home format and a large scale A0 copy-shop format. Seam allowances can be included per your requirements.

  2. Style Guide with pattern cut info, technical sketches, trims/notion(details provided by client).

  3. Fabric yardage.

  4. Instructions for printing layered PDF sewing pattern assembling the pattern.

  5. Finished garment measurements(Includes basic measurements like bust/chest, waist, hips, garment length, sleeve length, center front length)

 

Auto CAD format:

Digital patterns can also be provided in Autocad DXF format. Based on software compatibility, the pattern file may or may not work in other programs like Gerber, Optitex, Lectra etc.
 

Adobe Illustrator format- If you have Illustrator and would like to have pattern files in .ai format, please let me know, I can provide you .ai/.eps files.

 

Things required from you:

 

In order to proceed with pattern making or create a project estimate, here are few things I require from you:

  1. All about the design- description, pictures of clothing would be helpful! Rough sketches showing the details. Please share all the details you can have on the design.

  2. Size chart with basic measurements- Bust/chest, waist, hips and height.

  3. Technical sketches would be helpful.

  4. Fabric details like content, stretch type/percentage.

You can also provide physical samples (if any). As patterns will be drafted from scratch, it can take few pattern alterations to get to the required fit and style.

 

Pattern Grading

 

Price for pattern grading is per number of size in the size range. For e.g if a size chart is of range XS-S-M-L-XL, with Medium as a base size. Pattern making price(hourly rate) would apply for the base size. And for pattern grading for the other 4 sizes XS-S-L-XL would be (fixed price) each.

Please contact me for pricing.

 

PATTERN MAKING PROCESS

Pattern making is an integral part of the design. A pattern can be developed from a sketch, tech specs or a sample garment with proper sizing and detailed notes.

 
I draft all my patterns using a pattern development software. Method is same as manual/paper pattern making, but on a computer program. Digital pattern making helps me to create mess-free patterns with great precision. It also speeds up the drafting process, giving you a quick turnaround time!
