Ideation

I assist designers in creating apparel that fits the human form well, operates well mechanically, and ensures the best outcomes for satisfied customers.

Pattern-Making

I create patterns for designers in multiple formats including electronic .dxf files for industry, oak tag, and/or home sewer paper patterns. I am able to create patterns and to grade them into several different size categories using your grade rules, or basic grading principles.

Materials

I support sourcing research for designers.

Sample-Making

I create high quality samples for use as manufacturing prototypes, retail or wholesale samples, or design development samples.

Tooling

I produce complete tech pack materials and samples for industry.

Production

I am a contract employee of AZ Fashion Source, and they do small and large batch production for early career designers.
