Once you have the initial pattern for your garments, the next step is to create alternative sizing. This process is called pattern grading and involves making other sizes using your basic blueprint. Some manufacturers have standard guidelines for grading, and this is where you see common retailer measurements. For example, size 8 and beyond, sizes S, M, L, and so on.

Pattern grading doesn’t have to be complicated once you have the basic outlines. However, there are two systems to determine the grading.

Draft technique: This system applies increments to the pattern draft as a whole.
Track technique: This grading applies increments to the individual pattern pieces and essentially alters section by section.
To make this process easier, you can use computer-aided design (CAD) software to grade your patterns.
