Design is the first step in creating your stretch wear garment.  We will organise an initial consultation where we ask you to bring along any design ideas, sketches, images or samples to ensure the garment will be designed to your specifications. In this design stage, we will take into consideration design features, construction techniques, cost effectiveness and wearability.

Pattern Making

After working out the initial design, the next step in the manufacturing process is to create a pattern which will ensure the cut and the fit of the garment is perfect. We can also work with an existing pattern if you already have one. 

Once your pattern has been created and sampled, we then work with a local pattern grader to digitise and grade it. It can be printed on cardboard ready for cutting in the range of sizes required or digitised for sublimation printing.


The first sample is where you will see your design ideas come to life. Throughout the sampling process we will use your technical package to create a garment exactly to your specifications. Using the feedback you provide, we can then make any alterations  in a second sample or if approved, we can move on to the next stage of production.


We offer a cutting service for small quantities cut from a cardboard pattern, markers or sublimated pattern pieces.  For large quantities, we work with a local cutter who cuts to the highest standard.


We can provide you with high quality fabric from Eclypse Textiles, the leader in wholesale stretch fabrics, catering for the Swimwear, Active Sport, Fashion, Dancewear and Intimate Apparel markets.  We can also work with fabric that you provide though your own fabric supplier. If required we can recommend a local fabric printing service for digital sublimation printing.


Once patterns and samples have been approved, we can move on to the production stage of the process. Regardless of whether you are an established or a start up label, your garments will be made with technical precision and with a strong focus on quality control.

AlcieMay Manufacturing aims to be flexible with regard to minimums and turnaround times.  We work with you to meet your individual production needs and deadlines.
