Ladieswear Grading

 

Grading for Ladieswear is normally fairy straightforward if there are few sizes to grade.

The grading system tends to be just a compromise that is perfectly adequate when dealing with standard sizing for a small range of womens sizes. Even with a complicated style most errors in the grading system will probably not be apparent. Problems arrive however as the amount of sizes increase, and it tends to be more problematic grading down than grading up in size. The vast majority of Ladieswear styles in the U.K. are graded in sizes 8 to 14 . Beyond these standard sizes is where the grading problems begin to escalate.

Grading is quite  imprecise whichever system is used. Mainly the imprecisions revolve around the armhole, shoulder and biceps measurements. For  plus size grading we have to try to mitigate the imprecisions becoming a problem for the larger sizes by tweaking the grading system.

Here at  The London Pattern Cutter I only do manual grading, although I can provide Digitised grades if required. All my grading is completed in card unless otherwise advised.
