What is it?
A pattern cutter is someone who takes a design from a 2D image or drawing and transforms it into a garment. A pattern cutter has a very technical role that requires specific expertise. For example, a pattern cutter needs to understand how certain cuts will fit different body shapes in different ways and understand how certain materials and styles sit on the body. They create the pattern that can then be shared with manufacturers to make the garment on a larger scale.
