You're freshman and you find it difficult to create your first ready to wear garment? Pattern making is a nightmare for you? You have to graduate this year and you want your creation to be submitted at its best? You thought of something stratospheric and do not know how to turn it in to first prototype? We can do the boring stuff for you!
We will transform your sketch in to a runaway outfit
All fashion design students are welcome to our tailoring studio! We are prepared to take care of your concerns, problems and uncertainties with patience and we can do it in many languages: Italian, English and even Russian.
Sketch or technical drawing by e-mail
To simplify your existence first contact to define the price can also be made by e-mail. You can simply send us your sketch or if you have flat drawing with indications of details, fit of the garment and fabric you want to use. To define the shape, details and finishes you can send also some photos as an example.
Patterns and first try in canvas
Pattern maker and seamstress will work on your design until the realization of the first prototype, this means that if your professor asks you to change the garment then we will have to make changes to your pattern and sew a new try in canvas. Unfortunately all this will have an additional cost.
Pattern Maker Milan
The Pattern Maker has an ability to foresee problems of design, construction and materials chosen by designer before these problems become serious mistakes. If you get bored by practicality of pattern making entrust us your pattern and you will be able to present it at school without any boring problem resolving. The price of this service can be found here: Price list.
Creation of first try in canvas
We prefer to make at least one test in canvas before cutting your fabric. The first try in canvas is meant to show you the fit and form of the garment which later will be made in fabric you chose. If the result is not what you wanted the famous fitting is the moment you can change design elements or fit of the garment. Working on canvas simplifies decision-making process and helps to avoid throwing away your precious fabric, but the process of improvement takes time. Normally the first try in canvas is not finished as the first sample, but if you or your professor wish all the details you want can be added, but remember that that will take more time. Even for first try in canvas we offer takeaways: Price list.
After you made changes to fit and details of your garment we will proceed to sew the first prototype. From this moment there will be possible only minor changes. Shorten a garment is always possible!
Last minute seamstress Milan
You waited until the last minute and now you don't know where to find a pattern maker and seamstress to make your runway outfit in time? Dead line is close?
