What does the pattern maker do?

The pattern maker plays an essential role within the fashion industry, as the middleman linking together different workers.

Being the one who transform the design sketch into a pattern, they need to demonstrate creativity, technical expertise, organisation and interpretational skills.

The main responsibility of the pattern maker involves supervising the fitting within the prototype production, ensuring the quality of its industrial reproduction.

The pattern maker is also the one providing pattern grading, the process of creating different sizes of the same model.
