FAQ

How do I know if the patterns work?

Over 30 years of pattern making and running a full-service pattern making business since 2009 for the fashion industry in Australia. I've worked on thousands of designs with designers and businesses. Just like you. It's not unusual for me to be in a fitting offering advice on how to get that the business owner was not aware could be done. We all know that specs don't work. They only give an indication for the shape that you're looking for, but it's up to the quality of the pattern maker to then translate those measurements into a garment that fits. A pattern room. We've taken a combined knowledge of 150 years of pattern making experience a passion for creating a system that makes it easier for you to find the patterns that you need and a unique product that no one in the world has done before and develop this over 10 years and tested it in the market.

What if I want a unique pattern and don't want to look like everybody else!

We understand business can be tough and having a unique edge against your competitor is important. But think about it this way. The designs you're putting on the fabric, the service that you offer, the country and the state that you live in is going to differentiate you to your customer. With over 900,000 designs and 38,000 t-shirts alone, who's to say that you would be choosing the same pattern as your competitor. There's only a certain number of ways that we can make the perfect regular fit set in sleeve polo. Your customers are not comparing your fit and design to somebody else's. And everybody's shape is different so there's no way that you could tell that two people sitting next to each other with the same t-shirt on has come from the same pattern.

 

What if I need changes?

Not a problem at all. The first step is to buy a single size of the pattern that you need. Test this in the fabric that you have. Check shrinkage of the fabric. Then make notes and small changes can be made at the second stage when you order your graded set and specification sheet. This takes the pattern out of the pattern room library and into your own file and is uniquely yours. But who knows, you might try the pattern the first time and love it and realise that as your confidence builds in pattern room that you won't need to think about alterations as a second stage.

 

But I already have a library of 2000 patterns.

We understand and we want to work with you so that you can transition only the patterns that you need to change and move towards a better fitting garment slowly in a manageable way. Download our four steps to the perfect pattern from your favourite tea guide and all show you the key measurements that you need. In order to find a close match with a better fit. Overtime you'll build up your library and transition over. You might not even need as many patterns going forward because you have consistency of fit and can create strong stories to present to your customers rather than being reactive with the garments they have.

Can I change the patterns?

Will others have the same pattern as the one I purchased?

Yes they will, but with over 900,000 styles to choose from, there is a smaller chance that you will choose the same thing. Keep in mind, there are many things that make your offer unique, the fabric you choose, the graphics you add, the service you offer.
