Clothing production from sketch to a garment.

A Simple Guide.

To make communication with any individual or company on your way to creating a product as smooth as possible - we have prepared a short description for the typical clothing manufacturing process:

You will find it useful, especially if you are new to garment manufacturing.

Do keep in mind, it is just an example, and there can be deviations from this route.

All starts with your design idea – a sketch, CAD drawing or Tech Pack

Finalise the design. Create a product specification or Tech Pack. Here on Sewport you can find and connect with companies or individuals who specialise in design and specification preparations for your Idea.

Remember and be sure you have this covered before you proceed to make a Sample as these documents are going to be your blueprint.

Pick the right fabrics and Trims

Define for your project the materials you will use. You can do this yourself or consult with a specialist that fabric you want to use and will they work for a specific style.

Its ok to experiment but remember that not all experiments work out so be patient. Do not forget about tiny details that go into the garment such as zips, buttons etc. You will need to think about this too.

Pattern Making is next

Pattern making is a process of making template pieces of a garment. Usually, cut out from thick paper or created digitally with software, these templates are later used in cutting out specific parts of clothes from fabrics.

Another name for pattern making can be pattern cutting. This process involves cutting out patterns – parts of a design which will then be sewn together to produce your garment.

Create a Sample

Once you decided you know the materials and have your design or Tech Pack finalised, share it with a preferred sampling studio or manufacturer so they can start the work.

To check that everything fits nicely, a fitting sample, 1st sample of your design is produced. This process is called sample making. If you don’t want to use fabrics at this point to save money, we can manufacture a toile.

Sizing

Once the sample is approved, and you want to reproduce your fashion garment in various sizes – we do size grading with the patterns.

Pattern grading is creating various sizes from the master pattern. Using software or by hand, it is possible to grade sizes up or down using specific measurments depending if the items are standard or have a certain specified style (like oversized items) or function (like competitive sports uniforms).

If you are not sure what is the best sizing to use for grading, ask to use industry standard sizing data to perform size grading. These can be usually provided by the specialist or factory you work with. Note if you are doing items for specific purposes (maternity clothes, competition gear, oversized garments) the standard might not always be your solution, and it might be worth checking a sample in size up or down before getting your garments ready for the bulk order.

Once all sizes are approved and you know the quantities and breakdown of items per colour and per style, the manufacturer can run an estimate on required consumption of materials to inform you how much fabric and trims you will need to buy or supply to a manufacturer if the factory is not providing the fabric and trims themselves.

Bulk production & Quality control

The final step is bulk manufacturing of your clothes. Do not forget to ask your chosen manufacturer about their quality control procedures. It is always simpler to make amendments before the bulk is shipped to you, so asking for pictures of the completed products is a good idea.

Now that you know how this works and what to expect to start your first project and make an enquiry.
