Question: How do you translate a 2-D design concept to a 3-D physical garment?
Answer: Have a kick-ass tech pack!
Without an iron clad tech pack, you’re going to have a really tough time navigating the murky waters of sample making and production with any factory you elect to do business with. This “bible” of a document, if done correctly, will properly guide the patternmaker, factory, and sewer from A to Z with the least amount of drama. (Can we get an Amen!!) And believe us, there is a LOT of drama in this part of the process. Just you wait!
But, we can mitigate that so called drama if you spend the time to build a proper tech pack. This is where we get to the number crunching and the technical nitty gritty. It may just look like a bunch of pretty sketches and charts of numbers to the untrained eye, but it is so much more than that … scroll down to learn why.
