Pattern (paper pattern) cost (rate/price list)│Apparel OEM Aguka

If I request a pattern (paper pattern) to be created, what is the market price and unit price (how much yen)?

We have prepared a list of pricing tables for each level of design complexity (difficulty). It also describes how to identify good patterns.

In other words, this is the cost of making the clothes you designed.

What is toile?

If you sew according to a pattern created using a temporary fabric called sheeting, will the finished garment be as expected? It may be created when you want to check the subtle size etc.

*Please consult with the pattern maker and decide whether a toile is necessary or not.

Notes on fees when creating patterns

Pattern (paper pattern) size development (what is grading?)

You will also need to create a pattern for each size, such as S size, M size, L size, etc. For example, first create a pattern for size M, and once that pattern is finalized, make minor adjustments to the pattern for each size, such as S or L, based on the determined pattern. This is called grading.

Patterns may be created for each fabric (material).

If the fabric used changes, even the same design will shrink when sewn, and the scale of the fabric when ironed (press) will need to be recalculated. In some cases, work similar to grading may be required.

Grading (pattern size development) cost/unit price

Starting from 750 yen per part

A typical long-sleeved button shirt is made up of about 10 parts, so you can add one size for 10 parts x 750 yen = 7,500 yen.

Pattern modification cost/unit price

Starting from 850 yen per part

This is a modification fee if the design is slightly changed or the specifications of something are changed.

If you want to create a completely different design, the pattern will have to be recreated.

How to distinguish between good and bad patterns

Sewing difficulty level (easy to sew)

Even with the same clothing design, there are patterns that are more difficult to sew, and patterns that are easier to sew and less difficult. If you use a pattern that takes sewing into consideration, you can shorten the sewing time and lower the sewing cost.

Clothes cannot be made even if you cut and sew according to the pattern.

As mentioned at the beginning of this page, it is very common for fabrics to shrink due to ironing (pressing) or stretch during sewing. Therefore, even if you cut the fabric according to the pattern and sew it, the iron may shrink the fabric and result in a garment that is slightly smaller than the pattern. Are you there? is important.
