Childrenswear

Childrenswear patterns require  very specific knowledge and skills not required for other areas of pattern cutting.  Childrenswear is a very specialised area within the clothing industry. While not as technical, precise or standardised  as Menswear or Ladieswear, Childrens styles require many more sizing catagories and need to fit a wider range of sizes. Grading Childrenswear is very complicated and requires intricate knowledge of size specifications and sizing charts as well as the extra safety  and legal issues that childrenswear presents. If you get these aspects wrong it can prove to be very expensive.

Because there are so many sizes involved in childrenswear patterns and the grading process is  so complicated it is vital that there are no mistakes at this stage. Ideally a client should sample every size, but this can be prohibitively expensive and impractical, so we need to grade in such a way as to limit any potential costly problems. I tend to keep childrens grades more uniform than is standard, partly because it is more straight forward and partly because it is  this way it is easier to check for any discrepancies in the grade. While a large company can afford a few errors, smaller clothing companies cannot afford to  make the same mistakes.

Just the fact that a child`s head is 90% the size of a full grown adults can lead to big problems with neck sizes. Also children often do not like certain types of fit, especially round the neck.

Babywear is a branch of pattern cutting that has similar difficulties, but more ampified. Again , a babies head is very large in relation to the rest of the body. Consideration has to be given to the fact that babies need to wear nappies. In fact baby patterns generally have to be wider than for young children as nappy allowance has to be added.

In this sector I tend to work more with small startup clothing businesses , mostly based around London or Kent, rather than with larger high Street Companies. It is these small clothing businesses that can encounter massive problems if they do not have the correct advice from the start. Every aspect of the sampling and production process can be a minefield for them.
