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.
