Specialised Machines Buttonhole M/c Button Attach M/c Feed Of Arm M/c Embroidery M/c
Fusing & Pressing Continuous Fusing Machine Electric Steam Boiler (4 KW) For Ironing Table    
 

Draping & Styling Lab

Sculpting a fabric using a dress-form, conforming to its shape creates a three-dimension fabric pattern called a Drape. With this skill the students can conceptualize the fit & amp;overall design-effect of the finished garment on the body form before the garment is cut ‘n’sewn.
