They help determine the best production method for each design, review fit, deal with manufacturing issues and monitor resources.
Garment makers know and understand the end-to-end garment making process. They are extremely proficient sewers, operating sewing machines effectively and applying stitching techniques by hand. They work with different materials and trimmings, appropriate to the design.
