Do you have technical flats with all construction and seam details?


The flat is how you communicate exact details of your design. The pattern maker, grader, marker maker and sewers all need a flat in order to do their job. You need it to so you can cost your garment. NO: If you don't have one, you can hire an expert to draw your TECHNICAL FLAT or take FLAT SKETCHING LESSON. We recommend hiring an expert if you have one design. You sould take a class if you plan on designing many items becuase the cost can add up. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Do you have graded specs of your design?


We're talking about measurements. You'll need specific measurements for every point of measure on your garment for every size. There are industry standard places to measure. NO: Take a class to learn how to SPEC A GARMENT. You'll need to do it many times. Its how you communicate what you want and quality control your samples and production. But if you want help, we can do your MEASUREMENT SPECS with you. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Do you have a BOM with yields?


A BOM or Bill Of Materials is a list of all of your fabrics and trims including self, contrasts, linings and even fusings/interfacings. If you have self bias binding, you would even need to include this in your tech pack as a fabric and as a trim so quantities can be calculated and costed. Fabric yields are necessary in order for you to order the correct production quantities (plus 10%-20% more for safety). NO: We can help you with this, but we'd need some specific information from you in order to do this. You can learn all about what we need and how to provide it to us in our DESIGN/MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION. If you are new to fashion, you may even consider also taking a class in UNDERSTANDING TEXTILES so you can source your fabrics and understand what you are looking for. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Do you have digital production patterns with a production pattern card?


We work digitally using Gerber. If you have paper patterns, we'll need to digitize them into our system for you. If you already have digital patterns, then just email us the file along with your pattern card. A production ready pattern needs a pattern card that lists all of the pieces, what fabric to cut them out of and how many pieces to cut of each. It may even indicate if the piece needs to be fused or not and if it needs to be cut in one direction due to a print or texture of the fabric. NO: We can make patterns for you, but you'll need to provide flats, specs and fabric/trim info as indicated above. YES: Great! Send us the files! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Are your patterns graded?


Grading means sizing. Patterns are perfected in one size (usually a middle size like a Medium) first and then they are graded into the other sizes based on your company's grade rules and size chart. Size charts vary per brand and grade rules very per brand and may even vary per garment. Grade rules are the precise measurements that need to be added to each seam of the garment in order for it to grow or shrink to the next size. This amount will depend on how many seams the garment has so its always different. NO: We can grade your patterns. We just need you to provide a size chart with a lot of detail so we know how much you want the garment to change between sizes. ou would learn how to do this in our DESIGN/MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION. But if you forgot, we can help you fill this out. Just sign up for a CONSULTATION. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Do you have graded sew by samples?


A "sew by" is a perfect sample sewn by the manufacturer. It reflects exactly what you want that garment to be. Its what the factory workers will be looking at in order to make sure your production comes out the same as your sample. It isn't always necessary to sew one sample of each size, but we recommend it because you can check the graded sizes that way. Otherwise, you're taking a big risk. NO: We can sew your samples, but we need everything mentioned above. You could really use our DESIGN/MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION because we teach you how to provide everything we need to help you get here. But if you did the consultation and just forgot, we can help you fill out the grading/marking form and sample cut ticket and sample sewing contract. Just sign up for a CONSULTATION for a refresher. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Can you provide all construction details?


We'll need to know what type of seams and finishes you want as well as precise location of each of your trims including all labeling. NO: There are many different technical seam classifications and we can help you with this. This may even be something you figure out when you create your flats with us. But if not, you'd need to set up a CONSULTATION with us so we can help you figure out which seams you need. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Do you have cutting tickets?


The cutting ticket indicates how many you want to cut, per size, per color, by fabric type so that proper markers can be made for cutting. NO: You would learn how to do this in our DESIGN/MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION. But if you forgot, we can help you fill this out. Just sign up for a CONSULTATION. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Do you have sewing contracts?


The sewing contract indicates how many you want to sew, per size, per color so the sewing contractor knows what you want. Did you know that if you manufacture in LA, you'd need to use the official sewing contract from the Garment Contractor's Association and you'd need to have a Garment Manufacturer's License. This is to make sure there are no sweat shops. Did you know that paying piece-rate is illegal? There is no governance in Arizona, so you can use our sewing contract. And rest assured, we follow strict labor laws. All of our employees are E-verified and we pay above minimum wage because production quality sewing is a difficult technical skill. You may pay more per unit, but you know you're using a legal factory with morales, standards and happy employees. NO: You would learn how to fill out a sewing contract in our DESIGN/MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION. But if you forgot, we can help you fill this out. Just sign up for a CONSULTATION for a refresher. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Do you have send out contracts?


Send outs contracts are contracts used to indicate a step in the manufacturing process that needs to be sent out of the sewing factory for a separate operation. In other words, most sewing factories don't own every possible machine that might be needed to do every possible operation on a garment. For instance, if you wanted an embroidery on the chest of a blazer, you'd need to send the left chest panel (after it had been cut) to an embroidery company to do the embroidery first and then provide instructions to the embroiderer on what you want and where/how to return it to the sewing factory. Other examples might include screen printing, bias binding, belt loops, dye, wash, etc... NO: You would learn how to do this in our DESIGN/MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION. But if you forgot, we can help you fill this out. Just sign up for a CONSULTATION. YES: Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the quesitons to see what else you need.




Did you cost your garment properly?


Did you know its your job to cost your garment? The contractors you work with can give you some price quotes on different jobs like grading, marking, cutting and sewing, but you'll need to add those prices to your material and trim prices and calculate the cost of your garments. The cost will depend on how many garments you are making because you'll split these sums into each of the pieces you make. NO: You would learn how to do this in our DESIGN/MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION. But if you forgot, we can help you fill this out. Just sign up for a CONSULTATION. YES: Great! Gosh, you are awesome! You must have done your homework! We can't wait to manufatcture your product! You know we have no minimums right? We do this so that you can test the market before going big. Now all you need to do is upload all of this information into our system so we have access to your patterns, pattern card, BOM, yields, grade rules, marker instructions, cutting tickets, sewing contracts and send outs. Just send us an email and we'll create a folder in our system where you can upload all of this.
