StyleFile has a new blog with short and sweet digestible bits. Case in point, a recent post provides a free download for forms you can use to track your fit model’s measurements. Male and female samples are provided. If there were sufficient demand, I’m sure they would also provide one for children so do comment to let somebody know.
Other useful notes on the site include what is a “send out”, suggestions for pattern numbering (it’s not just me…), fabric shrinkage, being careful to specify desired stitching, testing all fabric components that comprise your product and the like. All topics we’ve explored at length -but perhaps so lengthy or preachy you haven’t read them. Such is life.
Last but not least, StyleFile has a selection of videos showing you how to streamline your tech pack documentation. Even if you’re not at the stage of needing software, it is good to keep downstream processes in mind.
Often described as the garment industry “blue book”, the most highly rated book in the business is guaranteed to get you off to a solid start or your money back. Many service providers require you read this before they’ll work with you. Learn more »
