The current garment industry not only meets the needs of our people but also plays an important role in the country’s economy. The garment industry needs a lot of manpower in many different departments with different levels to provide enough supply and supply. Here are some jobs and segments of the garment industry.
1. Pattern design in apparel
Pattern design is the first step to creating an original. The first standard prototype for a product from which to increase the size up and down by the size and to produce a series of finished products. There are 2 types of pattern designs:
• Hand-made pattern: with hard paper materials, pens, rulers, scissors and standard formulas will create the first standard template according to European, Asian, or Vietnamese forms;
• Pattern design by machine: is based on software specifically used for the garment industry such as Gerber, Optitex, etc. The advantage is saving time when the computer will allow you to jump size, run diagrams.
2. Cutting, spreading cloth – The indispensable work
Once there is a pattern, we can turn a rough canvas into a finished product of clothes, dresses, skirts, etc. The purpose of this stage is to transform the shape of the raw material from sheet to piece ( semi-finished products), to prepare raw materials for the sewing process.
Cutting can affect the quality of the finished product.
All defective semi-finished products at the cutting stage will be removed
Ensuring technical requirements of semi-finished products (sufficient quantities, the right sizes, the right specifications, ..).
Facilitating semi-products through sewing is easier.
There are two ways to cut the fabric into semi-finished products:
• Cut the fabric with a hand-held cloth cutter.
• Cut the fabric with an industrial cutter.
3. Sewing semi-finished products into finished products
When all the semi-finished products are sewn, the sewing department will be responsible for assembling the semi-finished products into finished products. Depending on the type of product is a shirt, pants, dress, skirt or jacket and depending on the material of the product, there will be different types of sewing:
Sewing squeezed. It’s like a hook. From one to two stitches of the needle to one or two threads of the hook, it will form fasten chains on the underside, back, and the edge of the product, preventing the product from being flung.
Double-chain hook stitches. The stitch is the shape made by a stitch of the needle, and 1 stitch of the hook forming the chain under the material. The next stitches will form the stitch. The advantage of this seam will help the product to have great elasticity, taking up less space.
Single-stitch hook. The 1st stitch of the needle creates a locked loop underneath the layers of a material called a single chain stitch. This seam has poor durability, is easy to slip, so it is suitable for attaching buttons, sewing submerged seams.
