Tech Pack Design Process for Denim


Preparing Tech Tech Packs for  Denim is slightly different then any other garment styles as there are certain extra processing that goes in a Denim Jeans Tech Pack. The Basic difference is in its washing and processing detailing. Unlike any other fabrics denim fabrics are bit tough to handle and therefore the detailing given on the denim is little tricky. You can give every detailing on a pen and paper except the washing detailing. Any Denim Washing factory would always ask for a sample or a rendered illustration to know where they need to focus on the washing and scrubbing.

IN Denim there are many types of embellishment which do not have any technical explanation.

Every Business has a lifecycle so as apparel business. However, there are multiple phases that apparel business goes through unlike other business. When you plan for a successful apparel business you must have knowledge and at least idea of the basic steps that apparel business goes through. Although there are many steps that you should follow however, these can be broadly divided in to some broad Phases as follows.

1. Register Your Brand and Logo:

The First step to have your great Apparel Brand Building is registering your Brand and its Logo which first would enable you to Lock your Brand Logo so that going forward you will be able to do your Brand building.USA Region you may do it online http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/ . Other countries have their own regulations to register the trade mark.

2. Research & Concept Building Phase:

Planning product lines to ensure the right products are in the right space and at the right price and during the right season are the key to Apparel Business. Secondly the second and most important point is to Transitioning line creation from a product-focused to customer-focused process. Based on this two core idea in mind the Brand should first develop the concept which suits both the products and consumer acceptance. Any miscalculation on the above two lines could lead to a low profit margin or even loss in Business. When you are planning for a harvesting crop you should put your seed properly. As far as the Creative Concept Building is concerned, it has absolutely has no limits and no control. Every individual has different thoughts and so as the concept and inspiration would quite depend on that. Only thing that you should consider or ask yourself is How acceptable your idea and creative concept to the mass? May it be your locality, state, country or globally.

This part I have explained in details on http://clothingtechpack.blogspot.comPlease visit us and send a note to us for more details. Check our Freelance Clothing Designer Portfolio on the link.

Pattern Design Service


Once we are done with the Tech Pack and Spec Sheet the next step is to prepare the patterns for the styles that we have developed. To Achieve the Perfect fit of the Garment Pattern plays very important role. Pattern of a particular Garment Style depends on Three Major Aspects which Fashion Studios must follow to achieve the perfect fits. While Designing the First Pattern the Pattern designer should first follow the Inspection Process which consists of fabric shrinkage, Pattern Testing on actual fabric, to ensure accurate pattern information, correct grading specifications. Those aspects combined with professional sample cutting, and the highest possible sewing quality achieves optimum garment fit level and gives 100% customer satisfaction on Garment Fit and adds value to the garment style. Precisely, based on your Sketch, Tech Pack and Measurement Spec Sheet, The Pattern Designer prepares the first hard paper Pattern and then Test the hard paper pattern on actual Fabric to make sure the pattern designed id as expected.

Second level testing is done once the style is sewed on a mock fabric and tested on Mannequin and if possible with Fit Model to make sure the Measurements and the pattern is coming out as per the expectation. If there is any gap the pattern is then it is altered and rectified till we achieve the 100% fit expectations. Once this is done the third level testing is done by sewing on an actual fabric to prepare the fit sample. All corrections for fit are often included in full package Pattern Making prices. Once all the testing is done and pattern is approved the next step is to digitalizing the pattern on CAD and Grading is done. Correct Pattern not only gives perfect fit it also helps in determining the Fabric Consumption. Then the Pattern Grading is done on CAD with all sizes like S, M, L, XL and XXL.

Base on your sketch or sample you submitted to a design studio house they will make you a hard paper pattern. After you test this pattern on your fabric, they can determine any shrinkage or fit problems. All corrections for fit are often included in their full package Pattern Making prices.

Upon your approval of this pattern, they will digitize the pattern pieces into a computer system in preparation for grading and marking.

1) Pattern card design

A pattern card sheet is a sheet containing all the necessary information for the making of your design. This pattern card is created once your pattern has been made and must have a complete list of all the pattern pieces the make up your design. Sewing details, trim details and thread detail information if any should be written down to insure proper garment construction.

2) Pattern balance and accurate cutting

Once your paper pattern has been made its time now to trace if off on a special dotted paper for proper grain line alignment before your design is cut on fabric to avoid losing the balance of your garment when the garment is hanging on a hanger and to insure proper fit.

3) Pattern grading  spec sheet

Finally, Once your prototype sample has been made, fitted, corrected and approved for production, Grading specifications should be recorded on a grading specification sheet were your design will be graded into the many size range categories according to the type of figure your are working with. A Grading Specification Sheet is a Sheet containing all the measurements for all your pattern sizes including your base size example (M) or (10) from which the pattern will be graded up or down according to your own in house specifications submitted or according to your client specifications

Fabric, Trims Sourcing – Apparel Production


Based on the Apparel Order Quantity , Spec Package Specification and Pattern the Consumption of the Fabrics , Trims and other components are determined and Bills of Materials are Prepared. BOM is the Detailed Sheet Which specifies consumption for each garment and from this the total consumption is derived. The Second Advantage of the BOM is this makes it easier for Apparel Production Planning and Execution.

Based on the BOM the Sourcing Process for the Apparel Production is executed and Purchase Order issued is to develop / source the fabrics, Trims, and other components fixed with Various Sources. The Bills of Material is also important to determine the production cost and there by helps in Pricing of the garment and based on this the further marketing strategy is prepared. Bills of Material In nutshell gives a shape to your Clothing Line sheet and helps in giving a business projection.

Sampling and Sample Approval


The Sampling process basically goes through several phases like garment development sample, Garment Fit sample , Photo shoot Sample and Pre-Production sample. Usually the Samples are first prepared to make sure the overall structure and look of the garment comes out as given on techpacks and on the approval of the Development sample the comments are then taken in to consideration. There might be many practical issues which pops out while preparing the Development sample. Those gaps are then commented and identified and the required alterations are done and if required the alterations are also done on the design, techpack and pattern. Once the development sample is fully approved and the client gives a move ahead the next stage is to prepare the fit samples. During this period the Pattern Gradation is also prepared and samples for each size set is prepared.

Once we are done with the development and fit sample approval we touch the actual production fabric and prepare Photo Shoot Sample and Pre-Production Sample. Sometimes the clients club both the pre production sample and Photo shoot sample together to curb the cost.
