8. Grading

Once the sample has been approved and signed off, a grading specification sheet can be produced. The measurements from your master pattern are increased or decreased to UK Sizing Standards to provide a set of measurements for the different sizes you will be offering in your collection. The pattern cutter will use this sheet to create the patterns for each of the sizes required.

Rachael is very knowledgeable about the clothing manufacturing process and provided me with expert advice for my brand. Bridge & Stitch offered design solutions which were then translated into patterns tailor-made for my brand’s specific niche. I would recommend Bridge & Stitch to designers who are just getting started and could benefit not only from well-made patterns, but also some guidance along the way.
