Sustainable In House Garment Manufacturing Using the Latest Technology

Get a step-by-step guided experience, the secrets to small batch domestic manufacturing, and access to no-minimum, batched-on-demand print/cut/sew, when you sign up for an Apparel Entrepreneur Membership and use our professional ROADMAP to create a sewn product.

Garment Manufacturing

Fashion design

Concept Development. Technical Flats. Specs.

You provide an inspiration sample or work with our technical designers to nail down your design. We'll provide guidance to help make your idea manufacturable.

Our team will create flats (technical sketches/blueprints) and specs (measurements) of your design to nail down the technical details. Or you can use our ROADMAP to do it yourself. Flats and specs are the beginning of a tech pack.

Our team can help you cost your design or you can use the ROADMAP to cost it yourself to determine if your idea is even possible to make in your target price point before moving on. We're also available to help re-engineer and simplify or provide guidance on reaching your target price.

Fabric and Trim Sourcing

Search our sourcing library. Source Online. Hire the Expert.

FABRIC offers a free material/trim sourcing library. Apparel Entrepreneurs can save months of time and thousands of dollars in travel expenses to trade shows and fabric showrooms using this library to find their wholesale material/trims.

Our ROADMAP contains lists of vendors, and other online fabric/trim sources as well as informational educational videos about textiles so that you are prepared to start sourcing. Download forms that help you organize fabric/trim sources and ensure you're gathering the information needed for manufacturing. Use the ROADMAP to Quality Control your materials as well.

Intimidated to DIY? Hire our team to help at any step.


Patterns. Tech Packs. Samples (Digital or Physical). Grading. Marking.

We can provide you with patterns (templates for your design) and sewn samples.

We use state-of-the-art CAD pattern software that allows us to virtually stitch your garment on a digital 3D avatar (with your ideal body measurements) to test the pattern before it is sewn. This saves time and money. Use these 3D assets to play with colorways and prints and even market your design as well!

After the design is perfected through virtual and physical fittings and revisions, then this final sample ("sew-by") will be replicated in manufacturing so this is a process.

The pattern can then be graded (sized into sizes) according to your brand's grade rules. Our ROADMAP guides you through ordering pattern grading and ensuring that the grade is correct (QC) before moving on to markers.

Our ROADMAP guides you through ordering markers (the template of your sized patterns that is needed for cutting) and ensuring that they are correct (QC) before moving on to cutting. Otherwise, you risk your production cuts coming out incorrectly and wasting your fabric....a common costly mistake made by inexperienced apparel entrepreneurs.


Our *no-minimum production facility is equipped to produce almost any design or sewn product. This is a test factory. We offer no minimums so you can start off with a small test run to test the sizing or test the market before investing in larger quantities. In manufacturing, small batches = higher price per unit. So, once you've determined your design is in demand, we'll also help guide you as you scale from small runs with us to larger runs with specialty factories. When you're ready to meet their minimums, you'll have everything you need to provide to a larger specialty sewing contractor.

Our capabilities include men's, women's, and children's activewear, streetwear, swimsuits, shirts, skirts, jackets, pants, jeans, dresses, bags, medical devices, sewn product inventions, and more. We work with heavy or lightweight knits or woven fabrics of all kinds.

We don't have the capabilities to make shoes, tubular knits (like socks), or hard goods (like briefcases), but we've got experience in developing and prototyping almost every other type of sewn product out there. If we can't manufacture it, after we help you develop samples, we can help manage your production at another manufacturer that specializes in your product.

We believe in full transparency. We are not a sweatshop and we pay our talented sewn product engineers a very fair living wage and provide a comfortable, safe, and awesome work environment. Our team welcomes clients to visit on-site to observe and also encourages and expects clients to virtually or physically QC our work during the manufacturing steps involved in producing their designs.

*No minimum, batched-on-demand print/cut/sew is available to Apparel Entrepreneur Members only.

We'll walk you through the steps below after you establish an account in our system. Make sure to use an email that you will continue to use for everything associated with FABRIC moving forward so our system and our team can find your account.

You'll get answers to questions like...

  • What is FABRIC and how is it different from a traditional factory?
  • What is a Phygital Fashion Incubator?
  • Is FABRIC right for you?
  • What is the big industry problem FABRIC is solving?
  • What can I do at FABRIC?
  • Who created FABRIC and why?
  • Who else uses FABRIC and has it helped them?
  • What will it cost?
  • How long will it take?
  • Can you make my product?

You'll learn what you are responsible for as you hire contractors to make your products. You can't expect a factory to be your Production Management and QC team for you. That's your brand's job. Learn your role vs. the contractor's role before starting so that you have realistic expectations and avoid huge errors. You'll also take our manufacture readiness quiz at this step to determine if you really are ready or you still need to go through development. TIP: Find out why just having Tech Packs doesn't mean you're ready.


No commitment - Month-to-month at $350/mo - Cancel any time. Apply for a scholarship after the first month.

In that first month you can...

  • GET ORGANIZED: You'll get organized and prepare to work with industry forms so that we (or any contractors you decide to work with) can get the information needed to successfully make your product.
  • DESIGN REVIEW: Meet with our experts to review your design idea. We'll work out the details together since the details are what determine the cost and your next steps.
  • REFINE YOUR IDEA: We'll help define or refine the technical details (construction details are nailed down in a technical flat sketch)
  • COST IT: Evaluate your product to determine costs before moving forward (count sewing operations, estimate fabric/trim yields, and consider development costs) You'll have a rough idea of what it may cost to make your product and what you'd need to sell it for before you dive in. And if you can't hit your target price, you'll know before you invest any more time and money. You can use this formula to calculate what it would cost at different factories/contractors.
  • ACCESS INDUSTRY RESOURCES, GUIDANCE, AND MASTERY: Access the Roadmap (including $70K+ of resources) including links, video tutorials, downloadable tools & contracts, tips, instructions, and step-by-step guidance in working through business startup, branding, samples/development, manufacturing, sales/marketing, fashion technology and more. Even if you decide not to work with FABRIC or FABRIC cannot manufacture your product, this guidance and these resources are meant to be used anywhere. You can use it to hire contractors anywhere and have the confidence that you're speaking the language, providing what the contractor needs, and performing your responsibilities as the production manager for your brand.

After that...

You’ll know if your product can be made in your target price point and you can choose to move forward with FABRIC by keeping your AE Membership and work with us to make your product in our batched-on-demand model or continue to use it to take your product to another factory to make larger batches.

Answers to common questions

We specialize in supporting emerging brands and trying to help larger brands re-think sustainable solutions to overseas overproduction. One of the biggest obstacles/issues in apparel production is high MOQ's. Emerging brands aren't ready to make thousands of pieces and established brands need to find sustainable alternatives to larger MOQ production and test the market with smaller quantities first. So, we created a unique model, here at FABRIC, that enables us to offer no-minimum batched-on-demand print/cut/sew.

If you are an Apparel Entrepreneur Member, we can offer you no-minimum batched-on-demand print/cut/sew manufacturing. This means you can make as few pieces as you'd like in as many sizes or colors/prints as you'd like. In this industry, price is based on quantity, however. The more you make, the lower the price will be per unit. So, manufacturing test runs may not be lucrative for brands targeting a lower price point, but it will allow you to test the market before you invest in larger volumes. Most brands/entrepreneurs use our factory to develop products and then produce a small size run of up to 1-2 dozen units (including sizes and colors) per production run. They use these as a proof of concept for the design. If the design is a hit, they have everything (graded patterns, tech packs, sourced materials, and a sew-by sample) to move into larger orders at specialty sewing contractors.

If you already know you have more demand and can meet minimums at specialty sewing factories, we can still provide you with the sample development, graded patterns, sourcing, tech packs and sew-by samples that you'd need for manufacturing anywhere. Then we can help you find a factory that specializes in your product with higher MOQ's.

Development comes first!
We can develop almost any sewn product and provide you with prototypes ("sew-by samples), tech packs, graded (sized) digital patterns and cut markers that can be used by any factory to manufacture your product.

Manufacturing comes next.

Products that we commonly "manufacture" in this batched-on-demand model:
Almost any type of "cut & sew" product made from almost any type of material including but not limited to:
Clothing for men, women, children, pets, unisex
Casual, sportswear, athleticwear, eveningwear, separates, uniforms
Items like leggings, skirts, blouses/tops, button down shirts, dresses, pants, shorts, jackets, T-shirts, tanks, intimates
Accessories like bags, purses, headwear
Interior/Home goods like pillows, blankets, curtains
Medical devices and other sewn products
Materials we can work with include knits (stretchy) and woven fabrics (non-stretchy) of many different weights.

Products are better to manufacture at a specialty factory, but we can still provide development/patterns/rough draft prototypes/tech packs:
-Bras that have molded cups and other complex components...however we can do sports bras.
-Jeans because there are special seams and features that are just better off done by a denim. Plus you also have to navigate the dying and washing process.
-Leather goods - Leather goods require heavy duty machinery and special finishings for the raw edges that is best when done at a leather factory.
Bathing suits - Some bathing suits are just better off being made at bathing suit factories due to all of the spaghetti strapping, elastic, structure, and other features. However, there are certain bathing suits that we can manufacture here.
Suits/Ties - Suits/ties require tailoring and other techniques that are best done by a place that specializes in this.

We can’t weld seams. 
We can’t make hard goods like briefcases and shoes. 
We can’t make full-fashioned sweaters or tubular knits like socks.
We can’t make traditional ties or men’s suits (unless they are unconventionally made). 
We have one flat lock machine so if you have a garment that requires flat lock, we can make the prototypes/samples but not manufacture them.
We don't provide garment dying or fabric dying, but we do have a Kornit Presto printer so we can print your patterns in any color onto PFP (white prepared for print) material so you can create your own custom colors.

You can expect to spend about $8,000-$10,000 to design and manufacture one style.... no matter where you go. Here's why...

Most products will cost $2000-$3000 to get them through development (pattern making, sample sewing, sourcing, tech packs and possibly even grading/marking). Then manufacturing costs will be determined by how many you plan to make. Most people start by making 100-300 units. It's a nice round number that is small enough to start but large enough to give you a price break on sewing. Most basic sewn products cost between $30-$80 to make (including materials, trims, labor, and splitting the development costs into the manufacturing quantities). Therefore, if you made 100 units of something that cost $60 each to make, you may expect to spend about $6,000. Therefore, you can expect to spend about $8,000-$10,000 to design and manufacture one style.

There is no way to give a really accurate answer to that question until you get further into the process though. The price depends on how many pattern pieces and seams your design has, how many you plan to make per color, per size, and more variables. Once you have nailed down the details of the design and have a technical flat of your design, it's possible to do a rough cost estimate on pattern making, grading, cutting, and sewing in different quantities. You'll be guided on how to do this in the ROADMAP. But once we’ve actually sewn a sample for you, we’ll have an even better idea of what it takes and can even advise you on making any design changes necessary to make it more affordable.

We will also teach you how to cost your own garments in our Apparel Entrepreneur Membership ROADMAP. Costing your own product is a necessary step that any designer for any big brand would do before approaching a factory. That way they have worked out the most efficient version of the design before bothering to waste the factory's time. Our ROADMAP provides you with a cost sheet that will calculate the costs for you and give you the different costs based on making different quantities. This is always the first step when designing any garment….draw a flat, count pattern pieces, count seams, and estimate the cost to make sure you can even make this garment in your target price point before you decide to adopt it into your collection and approach a manufacturer.

Our estimated rates (these are rough estimates that may change due to many variables) that can be plugged into your cost sheet are:


Pattern Making. $95/hr
Pattern Revisions. $95/hr
Pattern Grading. $95/hr


Tech Sketches. $95/hr

The historic industry standard timeline: Traditionally, the collection you are designing now is meant to be in the stores this time next year. However, companies like Amazon, Shein, and Temu have disrupted this traditional timeline and altered consumer expectations. Traditional brands are having a hard time keeping up and they still operate on this traditional timeline.

Traditionally, developing a sewn product and manufacturing that product takes time because there are hundreds of steps involved. This is why forecasting companies exist. In design school, you're taught to design products that will be in the store next year because it traditionally takes 4-6 months to develop a collection and 4-6 months to manufacture that collection.

It takes much longer than you expect to get your design through the development process and then through the manufacturing process, without the technology, funding, and staff of Shein and Temu. So, don't give yourself an unrealistic deadline. Just go with the flow. Then you won't be disappointed or miss a delivery. This also means it is best to design something that isn't seasonal until you get a bit more experience under your belt. That way you don't miss the selling season if it takes longer than expected....which it will. However, once you've nailed down the design, you can utilize the technology at FABRIC to fill orders in a batched-on-demand method in just days.

Once you've nailed down the exact design, sourcing your fabrics/trims always takes the longest and is one of the biggest hold ups and obstacles. Most of the world’s materials/trims come from overseas vendors and most suppliers don't prioritize small brand's needs. You've got to wait for samples/swatches. Then you've got to wait for sample yardage. Then once you've finally got it all together, you're ready to have a pattern made and a sample sewn so you're entered into a queue. Then you've got to go through fittings/testing and revisions. Then once your sample is perfected, you've got to get the tech pack finalized and get into a queue to get the patterns graded the have markers made. Then you've got to order your production materials and hope they arrive on time to have them cut and sewn. So, it's a process. Sourcing is often the cause of many stalls in the development and manufacturing process, but QC issues can also hold you up.

Again, FABRIC has state-of-the-art technology that most big brands haven't even adopted yet. However, its important to understand the traditional timeline and the things that may hold up the process and have realistic expectations before jumping in.

However, in general, most services take a couple of weeks and they are all on an a la carte basis. For example, it usually takes a couple of weeks to make the first pattern and then a couple of weeks to sew the first sample….As long as your contractor has everything they need from you. But it could be way less if there is nothing else in the queue. Manufacturing time depends on a lot of different factors including the complexity of the design, the quantity, and how many other products are in the queue.

Not necessarily….A tech pack is not a “one-and-done” thing. A real production-ready tech pack that is ready for domestic small-batch manufacturing isn’t something that you can simply hire a technical designer to create for you. If you have done that, you most likely just have first draft flats, specs and a list of the materials and trims you are hoping to use. However, this is not a production-ready tech pack.

A tech pack that is ready for manufacturing has evolved over time and usually takes multiple prototype samples over time to create and would change and evolve as the sample is perfected. In other words, if you have technical flats, specs, and an idea of what fabrics and trims you want to use, that’s a good start, but it isn’t a production-ready tech pack. Once you have draft flats, specs, and an idea of the material/trims you want to use, you still need to have a pattern made and a sample sewn out of your actual wholesale production fabric/trims to test whether or not it functions, it fits, and you like it. Normally, the first sample needs revisions so there will be changes to your pattern which means you’ll need changes to your technical flats, specs, and even your fabric/trim information in your tech pack. So, the tech pack is a fluid set of documents that keeps changing as the sample is perfected. This evolves over multiple samples and fittings until the tech pack reflects the final fit sample that is ready for production.

So, if you’ve got a “tech pack”, but no production-ready sample or graded pattern, then you actually just have your first round of flats and specs and still need to go through development before you're ready to manufacture.

This is why we have created our Apparel Entrepreneur Membership with the built-in road map of steps to guide you.

High MOQ Manufacturing

High MOQ Manufacturing is ideal for big brands that have large orders. Manufacturing in large quantities reduces the cost per unit. The more you make, the less each garment costs to make. To get these cheaper prices, traditional apparel manufacturing usually requires large MOQ's (Minimum Order Quantities). Most traditional manufacturing factories require MOQ's of at least 5000 pieces. Usually, the smallest MOQ's you'll find are about 500 pieces of each size/color. Traditional High MOQ factories also specialize in a specific type of product. For example, to get jeans made, you'd work with a jean factory because they already have the equipment and experience needed to make jeans. They would not be able to make bathing suits because that would require different machinery and skill set.

FABRIC does not offer large volume manufacturing, however, we can develop your product and provide you with graded production-ready patterns, tech packs, and sew-by samples that you can take to a high MOQ factory and help you communicate with them and manage your production.

On-Demand Manufacturing

This is a modern, sustainable, tech-based alternative to the over-production that often comes with High MOQ manufacturing. On-Demand Manufacturing is new emerging technology in the US. One of the only domestic On-Demand factories, Arizona Fashion Source, was created by FABRIC's Co-Founder Sherri Barry and is located just a few miles down the road from FABRIC. On-Demand Manufacturing provides the ability for your customer to order a specific size, color/print, and even customize the design when ordering. The order is then fed from your website into a very sophisticated automated program at the On-Demand factory. The custom order is filled and shipped directly to the customer within a few days.

To qualify for On-Demand Manufacturing, a brand must already have completed the development process (final tech packs with final sew by samples and graded patterns) and have dozens of orders coming in each day. FABRIC specializes in helping brands get ready for On-Demand Manufacturing.

No-minimum, small-batch manufacturing

New brands usually aren't ready to meet the MOQ's at high MOQ factories and they don't have enough consistent orders to qualify for On-Demand Manufacturing yet. That's why FABRIC provides the opportunity for apparel entrepreneurs to take advantage of our no-minimum manufacturing. We can develop and manufacture many different types of sewn products so that you can test the market before committing to larger quantities. You can make as few as you'd like in as many sizes or colors as you want. In this industry, the more you make the less it will cost. So, if you can manage to make more and have them made at a specialty factory, you'll get a much better price break. However, we can make you a small size run so you can test the market first. As you grow out of FABRIC's abilities, we can continue to develop your patterns, tech packs, and samples, and help you work with High MOQ factories or On-Demand Factories for production.

However, in order to qualify for our no-minimums, you'd need to be using our roadmap (which is located in the Apparel Entrepreneur Membership dashboard) to guide you through all of the steps. This ensures that we are getting what we need from you in the language and format that we need it, in order for us to successfully make what you want. It's a Project Lifecycle Management software as well as a Customer Relationship Management software that enables our team to access your files in a shared folder and collaborate on the status of your designs. It also guides you through the steps required in managing apparel production, provides you with the means to cost your own garments, guides you in filling out all of the contracts and documents required, and prompts you to do the Quality Control inspections that are an essential part of your responsibility as the brand owner.

Click the Manufacture button on our home page. You'll be guided through a series of steps that will get you set up in our system and provide you with the tools you need to get started. As you move through these steps, you'll be guided to learn about us, take a tour, then set up an Apparel Entrepreneur Membership account so that you can access our Roadmap. Then you'll be guided through the Getting Started section of our Roadmap to get your client folder set up and to meet with our team so we can discuss your first product. We'll work out the details of your design and help you understand the next steps to move into sample-making.

Are you ready to manufacture?

The flat is how you communicate exact details of your design. The pattern maker, grader, marker maker and sewers all need a flat in order to do their job. You need it too so you can cost your garment.
If you don't have one, you can hire an expert to draw your flat or take a flat sketching lesson. We recommend hiring an expert if you have one design. You should take a class (included in our roadmap) if you plan on designing many items because the cost can add up. Or sign up for our roadmap which guides you through this step and the others.
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

We're talking about measurements. You'll need specific measurements for every point of measure on your garment for every size. There are industry standard places to measure and these need to be recorded on a spec sheet.
Take a class (included in our roadmap) to learn how to spec a garment. You'll need to do it many times. It's how you communicate what you want and quality control your samples and production. Or sign up for our roadmap which guides you through this step and the others.
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

Are you ready to have your materials and trims delivered to us and can you provide a BOM (Bill OMaterials) is a detailed list of all of your wholesale fabrics and trims including self, contrasts, linings and even fusings/interfacings.
We provide a sourcing service or you can do it yourself for free using our sourcing library (must be a member). Need to understand a little more about textiles before sourcing? Take our Understanding Textiles class (included in our roadmap). Or sign up for our roadmap which guides you through this step and the others.
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

We work digitally using Gerber. If you have paper patterns, we'll need to digitize them into our system for you. If you already have digital patterns, then just email us the file along with your pattern card. A production ready pattern needs a pattern card that lists all of the pieces, which fabric to cut them out of and how many pieces to cut of each. It may even indicate if the piece needs to be fused or not and if it needs to be cut in one direction due to a print or texture of the fabric.
We can make patterns for you, but you'll need to provide flats, specs and fabric/trim info as indicated above. Sign up for our roadmap which guides you through this step and the others.
Great! Send us the files! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

The sew-by sample should be sewn from your production ready pattern and made out of your actual production materials/trims.
We can sew a sample for to approve as long as you've got everything listed above.
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

Grading means sizing. Patterns are perfected in one size (usually a middle size like a Medium) first and then they are graded into the other sizes based on your company's grade rules and size chart. Size charts vary per brand and grade rules very per brand and may even vary per garment. Grade rules are the precise measurements that need to be added to each seam of the garment in order for it to grow or shrink to the next size. This amount will depend on how many seams the garment has so it's always different.
We can grade your patterns. We just need you to provide a size chart with a lot of detail so we know how much you want the garment to change between sizes. We also need you to fill out a grading/marking ticket. If you don't know how, you can hire us to help you. You'd get help with this in our Apparel Entrepreneur Membership roadmap.
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

The cutting ticket indicates how many you want to cut, per size, per color, by fabric type so that proper markers can be made for cutting.
We can provide you with a cutting ticket to fill out. If you don't know how, you can hire us to help you. You'd get help with this in our Apparel Entrepreneur Membership roadmap.
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

The sewing contract indicates how many you want to sew, per size, per color so the sewing contractor knows what you want. Did you know that if you manufacture in LA, you'd need to use the official sewing contract from the Garment Contractor's Association and you'd need to have a Garment Manufacturer's License. This is to make sure there are no sweat shops. Did you know that paying piece-rate is illegal? There is no governance in Arizona, so you can use our sewing contract. And rest assured, we follow strict labor laws. All of our employees are E-verified and we pay above minimum wage because production quality sewing is a difficult technical skill. You may pay more per unit, but you know you're using a legal factory with morals, standards and happy employees.
We can provide you with a sewing contract to fill out. if you don't know how, you can hire us to help you. You'd get help with this in our Apparel Entrepreneur Membership roadmap
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

Send outs contracts are contracts used to indicate a step in the manufacturing process that needs to be sent out of the sewing factory for a separate operation. In other words, most sewing factories don't own every possible machine that might be needed to do every possible operation on a garment. For instance, if you wanted an embroidery on the chest of a blazer, you'd need to send the left chest panel (after it had been cut) to an embroidery company to do the embroidery first and then provide instructions to the embroiderer on what you want and where/how to return it to the sewing factory. Other examples might include screen printing, bias binding, belt loops, dye, wash, etc...
We can provide you with a Send Out contract to use. If you don't know how to manage this, you can hire us to help you. You'd get help with this in our Apparel Entrepreneur Membership roadmap.
Great! This is just one part of what you need. Answer the rest of the questions to see what else you need.

Did you know it's your job to cost your garment? The contractors you work with can give you some price quotes on different jobs like grading, marking, cutting and sewing, but you'll need to add those prices to your material and trim prices and calculate the cost of your garments. The cost will depend on how many garments you are making because you'll split these sums into each of the pieces you make.
We can provide you with a cost sheet and you can plug in the costs of each service from our Manufacturing Costs page. If you don't know how to do this, you can hire us to help you. You'd get help with this in our Apparel Entrepreneur Membership roadmap.
Great! Gosh, you are awesome! You must have done your homework! We can't wait to manufacture your product!

If you'd like to take advantage of our no-minimum manufacturing to make a small size run of 24 pieces, there will be a service fee to use our road map to get you into our system.

If you need larger quantities, we can help you find the right factory and even act as your liaison or Production Manager when working with that factory.
