Ideation

Design modifications can be made to retain the integrity but streamlining the construction process and diminishing labor costs. My skills are creative and technical. If you need design assistance or advice with current trends for updates, that can be provided as well.

Pattern-Making

I do all patternmaking myself, so I work directly with the designer. Much of my experience is in better wear and I do a lot of draping. While working on the first pattern, thought is put into ways to keep labor simple and cost effective. I work with your specifications and measurements. If you have an existing block that is a good fit for your company, I will work off of that or any of your existing patterns.

Sample-Making

First muslins and first samples can be provided. Materials and trims are required from you.

Tooling

All production patterns include sewing instructions, sketches, trim information and templates needed. Tech packs can be either yours or I can use my template techD pack.
