Zero Waste Pattern Cutting

What?

Zero Waste Pattern Cutting (ZWPC) is a method of pattern making that particularly aims to eliminate fabric waste from garment production. With the ZWPC method, the piece of fabric needed for a garment or multiple garments is utilised so thoroughly that it leaves literally zero fabric waste.

In ZWPC, the processes of pattern making and fashion design are integrated, instead of being separate, with pattern making typically following a predetermined design. The simultaneous processes of pattern making and fashion design enable the complete usage of the fabric: design decisions can be made during this evolving process of pattern making, guided by the aim of zero fabric waste. This method of designing has a tendency to lead, at least partially, to unforeseen results. Nevertheless, this uncertainty could be embraced as a way of designing.
