Professional Apparel Patternmaker, Pattern Grading, Sample Making & Sample Sewer
Familiar with aspects of the fashion supply chain and know how to deal with suppliers, contractors and buyers. I have worked with a wide variety of production sewing contractors and can help you realize your ideas in a way that is practical for mass-production. I am both a professional patternmaker and sample sewer - Garment Pattern Making, Pattern Grading, Sample Sewing, Sample Sewer, and I do it faster because I've already sewed it together in my head during the patternmaking process. Save time on travel and money on labour. Generally the process starts with a designer's sketch - I'll ask questions about fabric type, finishing, price point and style details, and make the first-draft pattern. Designers will often provide garment or photo samples of details they wish to have emulated. Ideally a "muslin" sample of the style will be made from the first-draft, meaning a quick mock-up in cheaper fabric that enables the designer to see fit and style details, without going to the expense of completing a sample. Adjustments (neckline pinch, hem length, etc...) can then be made to the pattern before the fashion sample is made. Once the sample size has been completed to the designer's satisfaction, the pattern is graded and sent to the cutter. I can cut for you, or you can have your sewing contractor do it.
