This section recognizes and identifies the standards for quality clothing
construction that give a garment a professional, finished look. The following
list is a guide to producing an objective evaluation of professionally made
custom clothing. Specific standards in construction can be expected even
though there are many techniques that can produce the same finished results
(i.e. French seams vs. serged seams). These standards apply to almost all
sewing construction techniques. Each technique should result in a detail,

        projected garment care, use and quality.
   10. Seams are well pressed, with no imprint on the outside (see
SEAM FINISHES  - A seam finish is any technique that is used to make a
