June 2022 -Standards of Quality

In early June, the Colorado Chapter had another evening meeting, this time to learn about Standards of Quality.  Chapter President Anne Kuehn led the discussion by walking us through the 2008 version available from the National ASDP web site (Standards of Quality for Custom Clothing (sewingprofessionals.com)).  This document contains expectations for quality garments made primarily of woven fabrics (knits are included in a few places). The document covers all types of features of garments and explains how professional treatments should look.  It also includes a minimum ease chart for various garments and references to books that cover the different topics.  Our discussion included what we should do if the client brings a garment to be fixed that has not been made to these standards; should alterations be done to the same standard as the original garment or should the entire garment be upgraded?
