NOTE:  Our Apparel Development Packages are based on the complexity of the garments and the total amount of resources required for development. Your garment should fit within one of our pre-determined packages listed in the chart above (BASIC – DESIGNER – COUTURE). Prices are based on each unique style number with a minimum of 5 styles. For example, 5 different styles of cocktail dresses would be 5 x DESIGNER.  There will be a 35% price increase on development projects less than 5 styles.

Apparel development is the necessary step to getting your garments on the production floor.  This process involves taking your technical designs and creating patterns and samples.  A pattern is the 2D geometrical representation of your garment.  We use industry specific CAD software to make patterns.  Once the patterns are made, we can cut and sew a sample for your review.  In this phase, we may bring in a professional fir model to try on each garment – this is called a fit test.  Once the fit test is completed we will make all necessary modifications to the patterns and make a second round of samples for review and approval.

Clothing Patterns and Samples

Clothing patterns can be your best friend or worst enemy when sewing samples and cutting production. While they can take some time to understand, with some practice, you’ll find that they are the key to making flattering and well-fitted garments.

What are Clothing Patterns?

A clothing pattern is a document that instructs sample sewers and production sewers on the proper assembly of the garment. It’s a template (made from digital files) for a garment that should be placed over fabric, traced, and cut out. The pattern will also have modifications built in to allow it to adapt it to a specific range of sizes, shapes, and fits.   Pattern making for apparel is a technical skill that requires years of practice. Each pattern is checked for accuracy and precision, ensuring that clothes are created to specifications with a low margin of error.

Sample Sewing

Sample sewers are different than production sewers.  A sample sewer must have the ability to understand, interpret, and work with patterns in the initial development phase of each garment.  A sample sewer will work with the pattern maker in the sample sewing process to achieve the correct assembly.  In addition, sample sewers work on a garment from A to Z in an effort to gain full understanding of each garment and to provide instructions to the production manager at the top of the apparel production process. In contrast, production sewers only focus on a particular part of a garment to achieve economies-of-scale.

Fit Testing and Revisions

Once the samples are made, we proceed to the next phase of the apparel development process known as Fit Testing.  Working with a live fit model (we work with a variety of fit modeling agencies in Los Angeles), the garment is worn and tested by the model, our pattern maker and sample sewer.  Each aspect of the garment is reviewed and discussed collectively so that any and all modifications and edits can be made.   After the fit test the patterns are revised, and an additional sample is made from the revision for further review and approval.
