The Power of Clear Garment Assembly Specifications

Benefits of explaining the construction of your garments.

1. You receive better quality prototypes

When you are precise on how you want the garment, you get prototypes with the quality you expect. It’s that simple!
The manufacturer knows what you exactly want. They don’t have to guess your thoughts. They don’t need to make decisions by themself that you’ll probably change later.

2. You work less (and reduce the development time)

By receiving better-made prototypes, you’ll have fewer rectifications. You can focus on improving the fit of the garment.

Fewer changes mean less (unnecessary) work for everyone: the factory makes fewer samples, so you have fewer samples to check. And you go ahead to production in less time.

3. You are more efficient (and you professionally stand out)

If you require fewer samples (or prototypes) to give the OK to production, you are shortening the development time. And as you know, in this industry, time management is essential.

Doing your job accurately (and in less time!) has a positive impact on your team and your career.
The relations with your colleagues improve remarkably. Your boss and your suppliers/manufacturers will be happy to have You on their team. And you will stand out for your efficiency and professionalism.

If you are unclear on how the garment should be made (constructions, finishes, and details), the manufacturer will decide for you. And it will not always match the expected quality of your brand.


When you specify technically the garment assembly you will:

– receive prototypes in better conditions
– have fewer fitting comments (fewer adjustments to do)
– require fewer prototypes
– work more efficiently
– improve the development time of your designs
– show how professional you are
