Introduction:
The fit and fashion of garments are very much important. The garments made in standard measurements do not necessarily mean that those will fit properly, will be good to look at, or will be comfortable for wearing because fitting depends on pattern shape, pattern ratio, and on the dimension of the pattern. The total inspection is done in the final inspection. There is no opportunity to inspect a complete garment before this stage. This is mainly important from the buyer’s point of view.
