These methods, shown in this new video series, Creating Fashion with Laurel, are not generally available because in the industry production is line assembly. Often two people sitting next to each other do not know each other’s job. That is why very few in the industry, with the exception of the pattern makers, understand the entire process. Laurel worked as a production pattern maker/ technical designer and grader in the industry before the advent of the computer. She learned sample making (sewing an entire garment together using industrial methods) from her sample makers. Laurel’s experience includes high-end industrial couture for preferred (NYC) customers. She was trained here in the USA industry by European master tailors. She has written and tested her material for over 30 years in her continuing professional college classes, attended by design room personnel, entrepreneurs, and other professional women.
Now, she and her son are producing videos that present these procedures. Try them! They REALLY work! And they are easy! You will be amazed at your success! With this new information you will now be able to make clothing that in the past you could only dream of owning.
Here are the high-end industry techniques you need to know to set a professional, lined invisible zipper in 10 minutes or less. All that is needed is a basic sewing machine and a standard zipper foot.
