Why Industry Seam Allowances?

Not all garment seams are made equal and not all need the same seam allowances. While pattern companies typically make seam allowances the same width for convenience, the fashion industry uses different guidelines, meant to give clothes proper structure and drape. Production pattern-maker Laurel Hoffmann details this insider information in her article for Threads #199, Oct./Nov. 2018. Learn the best practices for reducing seam allowances and incorporating seam allowance variations in your next garment in the free PDF of Laurel’s article sponsored by Contemporary Fashion Education.
