|SECTION II: |
|QUALITY STANDARDS FOR FIT OF A CUSTOM |
|This section recognizes and identifies the standards for quality fit in custom |
clothing that give a garment a finished, professional look. This section also
encompasses the body of knowledge for pattern manipulation and alteration.
Knowledge of these techniques is needed when preparing a custom pattern
and is reflected in the custom fit of a garment. Because these techniques are
incorporated in a finished garment, it is not necessary to present separate
standards for pattern manipulation and a1teration.
|The following list is a guide to producing an objective evaluation of fit in |
professionally-made custom clothing. The guide is based upon a classic
fitted dress with darts and set-in sleeves, and a slim cut skirt (see fig. A).
The pant and skirt are also a classic cut with a waistband, darts, and a slim
silhouette (see fig. B and C). All garments are cut to fit within the minimum
ease allowance provided on the Minimum Ease Comparison Chart (compiled
by the Standards and Practices Commit tee).
