You have defined the styles, designs, and fabrics for your fashion collection, and now you are ready to bring your garments to life. Have you found a partner for model design and established timelines, target audience, and budget? It’s time to get to work on pattern design!
Over the years, our pattern makers have faced numerous challenges, working with different types of products, fabrics, and fits. They have also undergone various training courses to stay updated on different pattern-making techniques.
This enables us to respond to the diverse requests of our clients, whether they require a specific type of product or a complete look. We can create patterns for men, women, and children. Each of our artisans can delve into your brand’s specific needs.
Technical explanation of sketches between pattern maker and designer
Ideally done during the project analysis phase, where the designer illustrates their ideas, defining the fit, size scale, and everything necessary for the design process (discussed here), such as fabric type and the use of particular secondary materials like adhesives and linings.
Preparing samples and possible 3D preview
At this point, the pattern maker starts working and, using 2D CAD software, develops the digital pattern. To verify volumes and stylistic choices, such as specific cuts, they print and baste it onto a mannequin. This step is crucial before cutting the fabric, as it allows us to see if the proportions desired by the designer have been respected.
The pattern can also be viewed digitally through the garment’s 3D simulation service.
Through 3D software, we have the ability to digitally “sew” the garment onto an avatar, set the fabric’s technical characteristics such as weight and stiffness, and thus obtain a realistic preview of the garment even before producing it. This step is especially helpful in avoiding fabric waste, preventing potential model issues, and avoiding the need to create multiple prototypes before achieving the desired result.
Possible adjustment of muslins
For particularly complex garments, an important step is the creation of muslins, which are mock-ups made from similar fabrics to the final model.
This step proves to be crucial for both the pattern maker and the client, as it provides a concrete idea of the final garment and allows for any corrections regarding volumes and cuts before cutting the actual fabric.
After delivering the prototype (discussed separately here), we move on to the refinement stage, which involves implementing all the corrections and notes defined during the fitting.
Clear and precise communication is crucial during this phase, as it allows the pattern maker to apply all the necessary modifications to the model in order to achieve the perfect sample!
