Synopsis:

With the growth of private labels in recent years, the demand for industry technicians to measure garments and generate spec sheets has never been greater. The 2nd Edition of this guide equips students with everything they need to know about measuring sample garments, creating fully graded spec sheets, and fitting garments for production. Over 450 technical flats are clearly labeled with measurement points and instructions for taking measurements. New sections on menswear expand upon the already comprehensive coverage of knit and woven womens wear. As the industry has become more computerized, the 2nd Edition includes current coverage of modern equipment and technology used in apparel specification. This book is also ideal for industry professionals working without a comprehensive spec manual.
