Sportswear Pattern Cutting
Learning Sportswear Pattern Cutting.
Pattern cutters are being churned out from fashion schools with no experience and no jobs to go to. It is vital that anyone looking to find work as a pattern cutter specialises in a niche area of pattern cutting, such as sportswear.
Experienced sportswear pattern cutters are still extremely sought after as the market for sportswear is still growing massively. While learning to be a good tailoring pattern cutter takes decades, it is relatively easy to learn sportswear pattern cutting.
Starting A Sportswear Business.
Many of our pattern cutting students are sportswear startup entrepreneurs or designers. They want to learn how to cut sportswear patterns for several reasons.
- They save a ton of money if they can design and pattern cut their own garments, without the need for tech packs.
- If they make their own patterns they dont need to be able to draw, or explain what they want to a pattern cutter. Hopefully this will also make the sampling process quicker and more efficient.
- To gain a better understanding of garment construction and fit so that they can be more involved with the whole process of sampling and fitting.
Sportswear covers a vast area of garment types. Today most sportswear is based around stretch fabrics, but there is also a more technical type of sportswear that requires more skill and knowledge.
