The Engineered Garment Pattern Prototype Printing Process

The process used for the non-permanent digital textile printing was just an ordinary 42 inch wide HP designjet inkjet printer.

If you would like to send out for a more permanent digital textile printing process there is Inkdrop Printing , First2print , Spoonflower, Fabric on Demand or Karma Kraft.

Here is a link to an interesting article on Spoonflower titled “Made in the Carolinas.”

We did not have time to send these files out for a more permanent printing procedure as the entire process from  virtual start to real world and ready for Runway finish for the 6 garments was three weeks and we do not have a more permanent digital printing system on campus.  Since the garment pattern pieces were printed inside the cut line – it was quite simple to cut out the individual pattern pieces from the printed fabric. The fabric was paper-backed so the paper was pulled off. The 100% cotton jersey was then stabilized with some iron on fusible knit interfacing. The garments were constructed fast because, structurally they were very simple.

The next step was to prepare for the Runway event.
