"Patternmaking is a skilled labor that oftentimes does not get the respect that it deserves"
"How many hands go into creating beautiful clothing.. the designer creates a sketch, that sketch is turned into a pattern, the patternmaker passes it to the cutter, the cutter passes it to the sewer...every person in that stage has to do the best job they can...and oftentimes that comes from a creative energy."
Recommendation of the week:
Invisible Seams is a beautiful documentary that highlights the importance of Pattern Makers, Cutters and Seamstresses in the manufacturing industry. The documentary follows 8 different Asian workers in the fashion industry in New York. It celebrates their talent, expertise, and contribution to the industry and history.
