Pattern Designing Software

When it comes to the technology you need to create your designs, you want to rely on the best CAD pattern designing software to build them. Our Gerber CAD system pattern making services are used by the world’s leading apparel brands all over the globe.

Why risk making your designs with CAD software that has no tools or the functionality to  export your designs to other fashion CAD systems and waist more money remaking them due to unrecognized format or error messages.

Your designs will be in a readable format so your domestic or overseas manufacturing company will have no trouble importing your designs into their Gerber CAD systems and we can convert your designs to other formats available here.

Pattern Making Tools

Old were the days when we all had to do our patterns by hand and we had to use pattern drafting paper to make them. Buying pattern making supplies and pattern making rulers were a must have requirement for any pattern maker who wished to design a pattern.

40 years later and in today's world we have replaced all our pattern makers supplies by digital pattern making tools which tuned the fashion industry world into a massive fast production machine by increasing their productivity and meeting the demand for new fashion products. 

Pattern Making In Sewing

In the garment and sewing industry pattern making is a craft that is done by pattern makers who specialize in the art of making sewing patterns for a particular design or product.

A pattern also called a template is traced onto paper to later be cut out of fabric for assembly into the finished article: a dress pattern.

Pattern making in sewing is an essential part of garment manufacturing and sewing patterns are made in different type of materials including plastic boards, cardboard, manila paperboard, etc...

Can you construct patterns from samples?

Yes, we can. Selecting a pre-existing sample that has the fit, silhouette or style that you like to build your design is a great way to start the development process.

Please keep in mind however, that the new design that you are trying to build must be similar in weight, type of fabric, and seam placement.

Cutting your pattern in a fabric that is not similar to your sample’s fabric type will not work on your newly created pattern. Example: your sample is a Knit fabric men’s shirt and your sample yardage fabric to cut your new pattern is a woven fabric. 

 Do you offer pattern making packages?

Yes, We do. We are currently offering 3 types of packages  that can be fully customized according to your own pattern making designing needs.

Do all packages include the same services?

Yes, All packages include the same services.

How do I add extra services or add on(s)?

When selecting a package you will have the option to add any extra services that you might need just contact us with your add on(s) request and we will add those services to your package.

Do you sell or provide fabric for my designs?

No, we do not sell or do fabric sourcing for any of our clients. Fabric sourcing is a job in itself and is done usually by the designer or company that wants to create a design.

Do You provide all the trims for my designs?

No, we do not provide any type of trims. You need to provide us with all the necessary components for your design or project before we can start the design process. We do not sell any type of trims.
