Pattern Making FAQ’s

We can start anywhere! A reference sample, inspiration photos, or a sketch are all helpful. I need the body measurements of your fit model to ensure a great fit. Knowing your end price point is also best, so I can make constructive suggestions to help you achieve your margin goals.

The fitting can happen on your end or mine.  I work with various male and female fit models in both standard and plus sizes and can facilitate the fitting in Nashville.  Or, I can video in and talk through any fit changes.  If you feel confident fitting on your own, you can send me fit comments and photos, and I can take it from there.

I sure can!  I work with a network of fantastic sample sewers and can help you every step of the way.  If you already have a manufacturer lined up, I recommend asking them to do sampling if it is an option.  This can save time in the pre-production phase as the manufacturer is already familiar with your product.
You can do as many rounds of pattern corrections and sampling as you want to achieve exactly what you’re aiming for.

I can provide digital patterns in many file types, including .DXF, .MDL, .HPGL, and Gerber.  If you want a paper copy, I can print it for you or provide you an Illustrator or PDF file in any paper width. All patterns come with a spec sheet, and cutters must detailing the pieces, trims, as well as cutting and sewing instructions.

I offer consulting for grade rules and can guide you to ensure your sizing works with your production budget and aligns with brands your target customer is accustomed to! I can also provide a customer-facing size guide for you.
Once I have all the information and details about your design, I will provide you with a binding estimate so you know the maximum you will be paying before we hit go. Providing a reference sample and/or garment specs can save me time and you money!
Two weeks. If you are in a hurry, I can bump you up the line for a small rush fee.
