Production pattern making is often sidelined by the more glamorous sounding creative pattern making, but the reality is, the production pattern is the real star. Grading, marker making and manufacture cannot start without a production pattern, and the quality of its execution will set the standard for the whole factory process. It’s a daunting thought, be if half a dozen garments or 10,000 it all starts with the production pattern, made by the Production Pattern Cutter.

In this one-day course due to take place Saturday 16th February topics covered will include:

1 – The importance of the production pattern

2 – Consideration of raw materials and trims

3 – Customising seam allowances for specialist machinery

4 – Understanding the language of notches

5 – Making secondary pieces such as interlining and lining pattern pieces

6 – Facings and the placement of labels

7 – Communication with a Garment technologist

You will need the following tools:

Paper shears

Set square or Shoben pattern master

Pencils & sharpener


Ball Point Pen

Marker pens – 1 x red, 1 x black, and 1 x blue

Laura a previous learner on this masterclass said:

“I found the lesson really beneficial, a real eye opener to see from the ‘other side’ of the pond! As we mainly do the design and pattern design here we sometimes do not understand the importance of the simplest things throwing out a pattern! (E.g. A rogue notch!) Maggie is so knowledgeable, it’s a real privilege to be able to learn just a little of her skills! I’m really looking forward to learning more.” 

This informative masterclass will take place on Saturday 16th February from 09.30am to 3pm at the Fashion Technology Academy, Unit 13/14 Crusader Estate, 167 Hermitage Road, London N4 1LZ and costs £75.
