We Cut & Grade Patterns

Professional Pattern Makers
Produce Perfect Fitting Clothing

Clothing Manufacturers Asia’s process for creating perfect fitting clothing focuses on the most crucial stage of your production – the pattern making. When you submit your tech packs or ship clothing items to us, we create accurate custom patterns for each of your styles, and we grade each size for free. This provides you with perfect fitting and perfectly sized custom clothing for every style in your clothing line.

On this page we’ve provided an easy-to-understand explanation of how CMA’s pattern making and grading process works. If you have questions, simply click this Contact Us link for assistance.



We create patterns in two ways depending on your production. If your production is simple and small, we might create paper patterns that are hand-designed by top-level pattern makers. For mid-sized to large-scale productions or complex styles, we’ll create digital patterns using state-of-the-art software. If you have your own digital or paper patterns, just let us know you’d like to use them. Check out this example – click here.


The secret to success in the fashion industry that all big brands know is this – you need to consistently produce the perfect fitting clothing your target customers are shopping for. Our pattern makers will expertly follow your specifications to create the exact fitting clothing for your brand. The only way to achieve a perfect fit is to provide accurate seam measurements. Check out this example – click here.


Size Grading is the process where we take the pattern from your one size, also known as a Sample Size, and we create all the other sizes from them. Although there are some standard procedures for moving up/down between sizes, if you have your own custom preference then just let us know in your tech packs. We always grade patterns free of charge. Check this example – click here.


This might come as a surprise to you but some factories will actually retain ownership of your clothing patterns. Not at CMA! When you work with CMA, everything you create through our service is completely yours. When we produce your graded clothing patterns for you, they are always completely your intellectual property. You can ask for your patterns to be sent to you at any time.


We’ve provided a quick checklist to help you prepare for getting your patterns created properly. If you have questions, simply click this Contact Us link to leave us a message.

  1. IMPORTANT: The only way for your clothes to fit your customers perfectly is to ensure your tech packs include accurate seam-to-seam measurements. If you’re not sure how to include your seam measurements in your tech packs, visit our Design Tech Packs page to learn how.
  2. IMPORTANT: Want to see what happens when you don’t provide accurate seam measurements, besides wasted time? See our Instagram post – click here.
  3. SIZE GRADING: Do you want to customise how your sizes go up/down from one to the next? Add aSize Chart in with your tech packs and we’ll make all your sizes exactly how you like.

I engaged Clothing Manufacturers Asia to manage my start-up men’s label. Working with a foreign entity initially was daunting but after having Luh handle the creation of my garments, I knew I was in safe hands. CMA’s on-time updates, detailed manufacturing information, and quick service, are all hallmarks of my experience with CMA. I look forward to a long relationship with CMA.
