Before we can produce leggings or other athletic clothing, we need a well thought out design. This includes a technical package, digital garment pattern that’s graded, materials sourced, and an approved sample. Did you know all that went into making clothing?

Activewear Design Services

Not to worry, JLD-Studios has you covered from initial concept to full garment production. Our team’s activewear design services can assist you with each stage in this process. Keep reading to learn more about these design stages and follow the links for an in-depth review of each service.

Activewear Garment Design

The design is the first step to get your garments ready for manufacturing. This is where we determine what your activewear will look like. Do you already have a legging sketch to send us? If not, we have a handy guide for sending concepts to get the ball rolling.

Technical Package

This document is the blueprint of your garment.  You wouldn’t build a house without plans, right? Don’t skip this step! An activewear technical package will lay out all the details associated with the aforementioned design.

Garment Pattern

A legging may look like a simple garment, but a lot goes into making sure it fits correctly. Much of this happens in the garment pattern. It’s a two dimensional template used to cut out your fabric, which will later be sewn into a three dimensional garment.

Material Sourcing for Activewear

Materials also go a long way to achieving the ideal fit. If you check the label of some of your favorite sports bras or leggings, you’ll likely find 1 or more fiber contents mixed with some form of spandex (lycra/elastane). The content is just one of the many attributes that goes into making a knit material. In the sourcing process, we’ll dive deeper into the materials and what your brand requires.

Approved Sample

A complete garment, following all details in the tech pack, with accurate fabric and trims. This provides a visual representation of the final design.
