Fashion fraternity has set up a plethora of trends over the time and most of the credit goes to those edgy perspectives that chose to stand out and invent new forms of clothing. Be it the glamorous gowns or those extravagant sarees, or maybe a thoughtfully designed dress, no clothing can be made without the very essential element and that is ‘FABRIC’. Realizing the relevance and the fact that it provides us the freedom to shape and cut it according to our choices, we will see the 5 major steps involved in the garment making process.
Realizing the relevance and the fact that it provides us the freedom to shape and cut it according to our choices, we will see the 5 major steps involved in the garment making process.
INSPECTION OF FABRIC
The initial and the most crucial step in this entire process is ’Inspection’. Once you receive the fabric, you need to check and inspect the garment for the loopholes. Many industrial tool and machines equipped with latest technology prove out to be an asset while garment/fabric inspection.
SPREADING, MARKING, AND CUTTING
This particular step differs in manual job and industrial work.
- In this step we spread the fabric widely. Then we cut the fabric according to preferred and prescribed length and width either manually or by using machines.
- Next part is marking. Every particular cloth has a basic shape if it is a t-shirt or shirt or maybe kurtis for that matter. We usually use cardboard or paper cut-outs to mark the shape. Later on we either cut the fabric manually or through garment cutting machine which is the last part.
- The third step is to ‘SORT BEFORE STITCH’. As the garments as stitched in bundles, we have to make sure that the fabric has to be of a specific shape, size, and colour. So we sort all the components that go along with the garment and also the fabric itself according to the requirements.
QUALITY CHECK BEFORE AND AFTER STITCHING
Quality check is a must! especially when it comes to garments. So, in this step we inspect the fabric again before the stitching and cutting process starts. After the inspection, process of stitching, embroidery and cutting the cloth begins. After stitching, we pass it through quality check process, needle checking and thread cutting.
PRESSING, FOLDING, AND PACKAGING
Last and the final step involves pressing, folding and packaging. Once the garments are packaged, they are packed in cartons. After the cartons are packed they are transported in huge amounts to shops and stores. They will further sell it to people.
So this is how we came across the basic journey from garment to glam in 5 steps!!
