The Process of Cut and Sew

All the big fabric-producing hubs have processes in place. These methods of fabric production are specific to their end products. Here is a general outline of the “cut and sew” process:
    • Step 1 - Preparation of Spec Sheet: A spec sheet comprises all the necessary data about the garment. It is a flat sketch which acts as a pattern maker to induce a raw idea of the design in the designer’s mind.
    • Step 2 - Paper Pattern: For this step, a professional is required to cut the sketch out of paper with perfection. It is one of the most vital steps of the pre-production phase. The main purpose of this step is to identify as well as rectify any minor detailing errors.
    • Step 3 - Creation of Garment Sample: As soon as the paper pattern is approved, a prototype or garment sample is prepared. This sample is then tested on a model to garner a rough idea about how it will look on the targeted customer. According to the observations, further amendments in the design are made. Corrective actions are taken because after this step the design will go into the production phase and no further changes can be done.
  • Step 4 - Revising Before Finalizing the Design: This last step is of sheer importance as this step allows testing the fittings of the designed garment. In most cases, frequent fittings are imminent. In case any error is pointed out, the sample and pattern are both adjusted. When the sample checks all the boxes, it is sent into the final phase of production.

Benefits of “Cut and Sew” Manufacturing

In the fabric design domain, the following points demonstrate the benefits one can get by opting for cut and sew over the other fabric design methods:
    • No Limitation on Printing: Traditionally, when garments are printed they are limited to a specific size, mostly A4, but on the other hand, the cut and sew method allows the printing of the entire garment from top to bottom.
  • Efficient Quality Control: Cut and sew method of fabric design enables the designer to have greater quality control as compared to wholesale manufacturers. For instance, the placement and quality of labels, though might be considered as an ignorable detail by some firms, can also be an important area to look for others. So, through cut and sew methods the label can be placed as intended.
  • Better Than the Sublimation Method: The sublimation method, in fabric design, restricts the designer from covering the whole fabric. Unlike this, cut and sew manufacturing allows the designer to cover the whole garment, such as underarms.
