Sample Making – A Comprehensive Guide

December 5, 2017

The perfectly designed garments that we see on the shelves of big fashion retailers go through a series of production phases. There is a lot of hard work and effort put into each piece.

Sample making is an important part of garment manufacturing. As a fashion brand, you should be familiar with what the process involves.

We at Lefty Production Co. provide a comprehensive guide to the sample making process. Read on:

Steps of the Sample Making Process

Generally, these four steps involved in the sample making process:

· Initial Sample and Fitting

· Final Production Sample

· Size Set

Let’s describe all of these steps in greater details:

Initial Sampling and Fitting

After you complete your tech pack and garment patter, your manufacturer will provide you with an initial sample of the clothing item.  This initial sample can be far from perfect.

After you get the initial sample and test it on yourself or on a fit model, you can ask the production company for revisions.

You might ask for a number of changes in the initial sample. T

Make sure you check each and every detail before the manufacturing company proceeds.

Production Sample

This is the final sample you receive before the clothing factory starts bulk production. This is the sample that contains all the details. This is exactly the piece that will be produced. If you have any concerns, make sure solve them before finalizing your production sample.

Size Set

After finalizing your sample, it is highly recommended that you duplicate it in all the sizes you intend to sell.  This way you can ensure that your garment fits on a range of body types beyond your sample size.
