As fit specialists we attend fittings from toile stage and work closely with designers and garment techs to ensure the best version of your design is achieved to create a production ready pattern. All pattern prices include 1 hour amendments, further changes are charged at a rate of £35/ hour.
An integral part of the development process, we work with major Hight street Retailers to develop blocks for their suppliers. Our garment technical services includes fittings, written & visual communications for suppliers, specification sheets, grading formulas, all testing requirements to ensure your garment adheres to British Standards. We can also create supplier, standard and code of conduct manuals.
We can develop an accurate and well fitting pattern from a sketch, spec or sample. Following an initial design handover meeting where all fabric, construction and size requirements are discussed, the pattern & toile is created in a similar base fabric to ensure the best fit is achieved efficiently and avoiding several unnecessary rounds of sampling.
We have developed and taught a one day intensive masterclass in the 'fit & sampling' process, run by the UKFT in March 2016 and are committed to offering ongoing training and development. Please contact us to register your interest.
We offer a full multi product sampling service. Our highly skilled seamstresses have over 25 years of industry experience and are competent in all types of fabrics including woven, knitted, sheer, embellished, leather/suede. Please ensure all fabrics and trims are delivered within the time frame allocated for your sampling as we have a strict policy ensuring we adhere to our clients critical path. Sampling prices start from £60 for a woven/ jersey top, tailored jackets from £150 and evening/ bridal wear from £350
