This is a project to create design and production drawings for a Karate Uniform (known as a “Gi” or “Karate-Gi” in Japanese) please see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karate_gi
It should be noted that Gis are made from 100% cotton or poly blend “duck cloth” woven fabric, brushed cotton duck cloth, or twill. A Gi is typically unisex and has no hard fasteners—just ties and drawstrings. These are traditional design elements.
I would provide you with an example uniform (I would send it to you by Post, DHL or Fedex) and I would want from you:
1) An Assessment of the Example Gi: I would like you feedback on the strength, comfort and durability, as well as, aspects of the design that create increased costs but provide little benefit of the example and ways that you could improve it. We would then agree to list of changes in the design.
2) A Full Design and complete package of production drawings and instructions in Gerber Accumark or equivalent including, but not limited to: cutting patterns, sew drawings, marker drawings, grading for 8 sizes (teen through adult), etc. I expect to be able to send fabric and this design package to any modern cut and sew shop in the world and have them produce the product with little additional information.
I have a high rating on Elance, Odesk and Upwork because I am a very open and collaborative person. I don’t bring a lot of ego to my work process. I know that you will know a lot more about this than I do. I am looking for a successful project through productive collaboration and I am counting you being very forthcoming with your opinions and ideas to make this successful.
As a follow up project, I would consider having you supervise the creation of samples or production if you have local resources.
