How to Spec a Garment eBook & Apparel Techpacks
Designers Nexus

Learn how to measure garments and enter specs into tech packs with this fully illustrated PDF eBook. Includes customizable Excel Tech Pack Templates!

About the eBook:

Knowing how to measure garments is a common requirement for entry-level or assistant fashion designers. Designers need to include at least basic garment measurements with their flat sketches, and Senior Designers often are responsible for approving garment specs.

With this “How to Spec a Garment” eBook, you’ll become familiar with common points of measurement (POM) for apparel, giving you the fundamentals to spec any type of garment. This fully-illustrated tutorial will leave you with the ability to easily adapt to various company standards and POMs. And once you know how to measure clothing, this eBook becomes a great reference throughout your apparel design career.

About the Tech Pack Templates:

Use Fashion Tech Pack Templates to easily take your garment from design, to sample, to final graded specs that are ready for final production! The Spec Sheet already includes all common POMs for a given garment type, so you can just enter garment measurements in the spec column. Import your own detailed sketch with callouts on the Detail Sheet. And best of all, our Grade Sheets with formulated grade rules will save you painstaking manual size grading calculations. Just enter your final specs in the approved spec column, and size grades will automatically be calculated for you!

Each 3-Page Tech Pack contains:

  • Specification Sheet with space for thumbnail sketch
  • Detail Sheet for technical flat sketch with detail callouts
