Pattern Grading And Markers

The Essence Of Grading

You will need grading when you start producing your garments in a range of sizes.

We will take your base pattern and re-create in a variety of sizes, following your grading chart.

The Grading Process

We advise to begin the grading process only after you have fully developed your samples and amended your patterns. 

Your patters and grading spec would have to be ready for grading. We can check patterns and the grading chart if required. Please inquire about charges.

Please note all the grading patterns are printed out on paper. We do not use card at our studio.

Grading Rules


We can help you develop your company grading rules and size charts.

Your customers will, naturally, expect consistency of fit across your brand, and so your company grading rules should reflect your market and your ambitions. Each customer base is different and your grading rules will need to match the customers you want. 

Getting grading right can be a significant contributor to gaining more sales and growing your reputation and your business.
