Drawing from our roots in old world tailoring principles we place a high value in hand drafted patterns. At our facility on Cape Cod, we are able to work from either a prototype or an illustration to craft hand drawn production ready patterns. These are a must before any of our designers are able to go to production.
Creating a sample is a necessary step in preparing for manufacturing. With a sample you are able to test the fit of your garment, the shape, the way your fabrics drape etc. After we create a sample we send it back to our clients for them to asses what changes need to be made. This process can require multiple samples and in the end you are left with a garment or product that is made specifically to suit your specifications.
Grading is the final step of the development process where we translate your base pattern across your size range. If you have a garment or product that does not require size variants you are able to skip this step entirely.
