Grading is the process of creating an agreed range of sizes prior to manufacturing.
Usually, this stage comes after your garment pattern has been fully developed and tested. This is normally done by making and agreeing on the sample production, then by fit testing and implementing any necessary amendments.
It’s advisable to refrain from a pattern grading until you are confident in the fit, design and details of construction. An extra layer to our services is pattern checking prior to gradin and tech packs.
