CLOTH PATTERN MAKING AND GRADING
1.1 Pattern Making
A pattern is the template of your garment, or some may call it the architecture of apparel production. Without it, the sample maker will have no direction on how to produce your garments. At Apparel Empire you can either use our standard paper pattern or you can customise one yourself.
Grading is the process of re-sizing the initial pattern which is made in only one size. Thus in order to fit in various body types, the cloth pattern must be increased or decreased geometrically. Not every production house provides pattern grading, which is an essential for all garment production.
