The role of patterns in clothing manufacture: generating and communicating information

Abstract:

A pattern is more than just a template for cutting cloth. It is the document from which a production run of garments is made and used in many different ways by Production Pattern Cutters and Graders, Lay Planners and Factory Manufacturing Personnel. This chapter tells the story of the pattern from design sketch to production and explains the lines of communication, how to generate information, store instructions and pass them on.
