We draft apparel patterns using the Optitex software from the start. This cuts down on digitizing costs that is incurred by hand drafting. This provides us with the flexibility to make fluid adjustments while still maintaining delivery deadlines. Once you receive your first proto for fabric and fit approval, we will work with you on any needed adjustments to make sure that the fit is right. We'll also be on hand to communicate this information to the factory directly, eliminating downtime and possible miscommunication. Lastly, once the fit has been approved we can also provide grading. This is always done digitally and the files will be sent as a pdf, dxf, ai, or pds depending on your factories needs.


Whether you use our patternmaking services or someone else’s, you’ll want to have a 1st proto made to test the garment pattern. Depending on your design, we tend to do a rough proto first. We’ll leave off pockets and any other “extras” allowing us to focus on the overall garment fit and construction. Sometimes protos are also made in a similar available fabric if your chosen fabric is very expensive or unavailable for a time. Upon receiving the samples, you’ll address any fit issues, pocket placements, and location of unique design details. Often times major design changes occur during this process. Once the proto is approved, or approved with minor adjustments, you can move on to sales quality samples. No matter where you sell your garments, you’ll want a quality sample before going to production. They can be used for wholesale presentations, online photos, and to test production quality. Actual fabric, trims, and finishing will be used to represent how your garment will look when produced.
