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 Second 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 men's wear expand upon the already comprehensive coverage of knit and woven women's wear. As the industry has become more computerized, the Second 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. New to this Edition: -- New sections on measuring men's wear -- Overview of related technology such as new software and equipment -- Expanded coverage of the importance of size specification in today's apparel manufacturing industry, possibly including profiles of technical designers -- CD-ROM includes blank spec sheets that students can fill-in directly on the computer, rather than printing them out and writing by hand -- Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
