but where is it all sewn?
but is it true that until now many operations in sewing can not be replaced with automatic machines?
why is the mood in the sewing workshop very important?
what and how does it generally happen, to get a "dream dress"?
in order to reduce the number of mental torments and spiritual searches - we offer a mini photo tour of the place where the dresses are born
move to the city, it is in it
along the street adjacent to the church , which for many years was called "Moscovskaya" and is located unique in its architectural concept of sewing complex "Vlasta".
With glass roofs, the design of the bureau and the library of sewing skill, the fountain and the Christmas trees in the middle of the asphalt .... though everything has already been covered with "former glory", but we concentrate every day on the essence of the idea - that's why we are very inspired by the place where we arranged the production).
in this territory to find the doors behind which "are born" dresses - it is easy! they recognize them by the colored brick wall and the presence of flowers - in the summer, and in the winter - by the Christmas tree and snowmen.
The production process starts with obtaining a technical task from the designer. Usually in the form of a sketch with a sample of materials.
It is interesting that it is scientifically recommended about 4 intermediate documents before starting the model in production and preferably not just a pencil in an arbitrary form. But we prefer simplicity and efficiency.
Then the fabric falls on the oooooooordinal cutting table.
where there is a "flooring / laying" of the layers of fabric, from which the details of the future dress will be cut out for the sewing that has passed them.
in today's electronic world, many convenient computer programs are used to optimally model the layout of the patterns on the fabric. To the automatic knife cut the fabric according to the compiled layout on the monitor.
We are a little conservative in this regard.
For we are convinced that the fabric needs to be laid out independently, with hands, on the table.
See how she behaves "in size." Whether it slips, what color it has, feel it in space and imagine the subsequent 3D embodiment of the product.
Therefore, yes, we are supporters of convenient modeling programs and optimal layout ..... while doing this on the desktop instead of the monitor.
(by the way, the more pieces - the more technically difficult the product for production, for it is additional seams and the ability to make mistakes.) Each pocket or a beautiful cuff is a separate part for both cutting out the fabric and then when they are "sewing / stitching. "A simple sarafan is two stitched parts, a usual dress of about 12-16 pieces, more complicated is a dress of up to 30 sewn pieces .... haute couture dresses are measured in hundreds of pieces and elements) and so, having the already cut pieces of fabric - You can send them to sewing masters tion.
Of course, providing the seamstress with detailed visual instructions on the standards, which in the end should work. It is important to understand that it's not just "driving a line", but creating a business dress for important negotiations .... or sewing a weekend dress for a romantic trip. Fabric of natural origin. Absorbs energy and the ratio of seamstresses.
Now we distribute the fittings that are sewn into the product: locks, buttons, etc.
we keep all such trifles so that it is convenient for them to approach, it is easy to take and clearly understand what is left. To do this, we use multi-colored labels, a labeling system and well-designed shelves / fasteners in their storage areas.
then begins the game of thread and canvas. The unity of the mood of the seamstress and the designer's dreams. Stitching!
why do so many dresses are sewn by hand?
First, there are already many products in the world that are sewn by 90-100% with automatic machines without the participation of people. As a rule, these are universal models with smooth seams and clearly defined angles. Without "complex" overlapping, pivoting, cutting, cutting, etc. elements.
For machines can not yet take into account the nuances of cloth (weave, curling edges of the fabric, clinging to lag the lower layer in the cross-linking, etc.). Machine guns are not well friends with making improvements in the middle of the process. But it happens.
Secondly, science today is more thinking about making a new generation of clothes are made on the principle of "blowing the figure" / forming, rather than stitching and trimming. That is, we have scanned and blown out of "plastic flasks" the perfect dress the desired color with a perfect fit.
Therefore, while the improvements in technology that stitching = partially suspended.
Hang on 5-10 years and realize that we need to add in the production: 3D printer and trays with Chemical reagents, or is it some kind of electronic attachment for sewing machines.
All machines (universal and special purpose) are located in a separate room.
With high windows, flowers and art decoration.
Many colleagues chose cooperation with our cooperation precisely because of the stylish working conditions.
Naturally for eating / drinking / listening to music resting = specially allocated territory.
when the products are ready, they are "ironed"
and put on stands.
for a deeper dispatch to those who follow their appearance and appreciate the process in which something that expresses a person's inner world is created.
We hope that we manage to create things in such a way that in addition to design and fabric, you feel the positive charge from attention and joy of those people who cut them, stitched them, presented them.
