How Clothes Are Made In 9 Steps (A Look Into A Clothing Factory)
How a piece of clothing is made and what sort of work is put into making your dream design come true.
Without prior knowledge of how the garment manufacturing industry works it can be a bit confusing. People working with clothing factories for the first time are often frustrated with delays, long lead-times or with the lack of flexibility from the factory when a brand requests last-minute changes.
1. Patterns – Paper vs Digital
The clothing manufacturer noted straight away that for sampling and proper production our paper patterns would have to be digitised as some things are impossible to do by having only paper patterns. In the modern digital world having sewing patterns in a file rather than on paper only makes sense.
2. Sorting out the patterns after digitising
The pattern maker noticses if there were rough places and little imperfections which could be easily adjusted and fixed now that the pattern was in their system. Working with digital patterns allows the pattern maker to make alterations and changes with surgical precision. All measurement adjustments are visualised and tracked in real time. By the way, the same set of patterns would be used later to grade to other sizes if we approved the produced samples. Size grading is done using the same software.
3. Lay-plan: Getting patterns ready for production
The next step is to print out the patterns on a plotter. To do so the factory specialist has to prepare a proper lay-plan, which meant laying out all pattern blocks in a specific order (in our case sampling) taking into consideration things such as fabric length, roll width, the total number of items to be produced with a breakdown of sizes.
Note that fabric consumption for a sample and for bulk production for the same item can greatly differ. Think of the good old Tetris, you are stacking shapes trying to avoid blanks and empty spaces.
4. Cutting the fabric
The plotter prints out patterns from the pre-compiled lay-plan and workers were ready to cut our fabric. Patterns are printed on the special paper that stuck to the fabric seamlessly, so when the cutting was done nothing would slide. As the cutting began its noticed that the initial part was done manually with the scissors, but then the finer bits were trimmed with specialised equipment.
Different fabrics react differently to cutting and can distort more than others, so the result will be uneven. This is why even if there is a 1% difference in composition a separate cutting job is needed.
5. Making sets for the seamstresses
Once the cutting was completed all cut pieces are put together in sets. To optimise production similar operations were grouped so people could pick up speed doing the same thing over and over gradually saving time on production. Think of the way you brush your teeth every single day.
6. Colours and Trims
For production stage we they select the right colour of the threads to match the colour of the fabric. With a little effort they managed to find the best matching colours. We were faced with a lot of options. Some had minimal differences and we have not even seen all the available shades.
Trims were not required for these items except for elastics but we noticed a large selection of zips, buttons and other accessories offered by the fabric.
7. Adjusting the machinery
Our specialist had her set of cut fabric pieces and was ready to start sampling but she had to adjust the equipment first. Every sewing machine has to be adjusted for a specific type of fabric. She began unloading the old threads and putting in the new reels for our samples in the colour we chose. The seamstress took 6 reels of threads of the same colour as our garment and placed them in the flat-lock sewing machine. She then tested the seam on a piece of fabric to be sure the tension was set and adjusted properly.
8. Finally, Sewing
Checking that everything was adjusted properly she began laying out the set and sewing together the pieces until we see our design finally coming to life.
Once the items were completed she took them to the sampling unit to check the measurements against our spec. Everything looked fine and after some thorough QC is tried on the samples, then approved them for grading and went on to discuss the future bulk production order.
