Apparel products are meant to go on a body. Unless the style is an art piece or intended to be more of a show piece, clothing go on a 3D form - the body, that is in constant motion.
This means pattern construction is extremely important for your products.
If the fit is off, the style becomes uncomfortable and the customer will not like it. If the customer tryes on a piece in the fitting room and already there notices the bad fit, he/she will not buy your product.
What I’m trying to say is that pattern making is a very important part in the product development. And to know the basics of pattern making also means your designs will be better because you will think about the patterns already in the design stage.
How good are your pattern skills? Would you like us to write more about patterning?
