✚ PATTERN CUTTING, GRADING
Creative and skilled in a variety of pattern cutting techniques, our experienced pattern cutters can interpret your rough sketches or reference images and produce accurate patterns directly from physical garments, existing patterns or detailed technical specs, whether it’s making a simple skirt or amending an existing pattern.
↬ We work on everything from individual custom-made pieces to full collections for the catwalk, from manual pattern cutting, creative pattern cutting, through to block manipulation, draping and grading, all offered at your request.
During the pattern cutting process, we usually cut from inexpensive calico to make the toiles we use to check the shape of your garment’s design before cutting out and sewing using the desired fabric. Having spent many years in the industry, our pattern cutters are highly experienced in customising a pattern for any garment design.
✚ TOILING AND FITTING
To ensure the best results in our garment making, London Sewing Services Ltd provides you with a toile-making service and fitting sessions. This allows us to see that your garment design fits the body as is required and expected by the person for whom it is intended.
↬ The toile, which is the initial prototype of each garment, will be created in calico or a fabric similar to the final garment to be fitted on the body. In most cases, only one toile is needed.
Once we have prepared the toile, the next step is a fitting made on a suitable model to ensure that all parts of the garment measure exactly as they should. Detailed measurements will be taken of the model at each assessment and fit; comfort and aesthetics will be analyzed.
✚ SAMPLE PRODUCTION
The sample-making team is ready to produce any type of sample of your garment. We provide high-quality sampling services, and our fully-experienced machinists are able to create your clothing samples in the form of prototypes, salesman or promotional samples from your designs, or specification sheets and patterns in any fabric of your choice.
↬ We offer a sampling service to make sure every part of the garment, from the trims and fit, is perfect before production. All our samples are produced with your future production orders in mind.
Whether you’re providing your own patterns or we are developing them for you, our fully-experienced machinists can create the samples in the final fabrics. From these, you’ll be able to see how the actual fabric reacts to the pattern, and we will be able to see the small amendments necessary to prepare the garment for production.
