There was a time when an individual wearing a loose fitting pair of jeans would be advised to visit the nearest tailoring outlet and get the same repaired as early as possible. Today, extremely low waist genes that show all that should not be shown have become a fashion trend. Designers enjoy more options because it is possible to alter the fabric in many different ways without incurring heavy expenditure or facing any complications.
For example, the fabric can be scuffed to make it look as if it is very old. Denim companies have come up with such jeans that makes the individual look as if he or she has owned the pair for a long time. In the same way, students prefer those jeans that have cuts at strategy points near their knee joint and thighs. All this has become a part of fashion trend even if it serves no utilitarian purpose whatsoever.
All this has become possible only because of improvements in stitching technology. The entire process can be completed without any adverse impact on quality of the fabric. In the past, expecting a tailored to stitch worn and scruffy clothes would obviously affect the finish. Today, this is not a problem at all.
Cutting the fabric in the right manner and stitching it has become very simple. With more and more about technology and automation being introduced into the process, loss of jobs is inevitable. Can the fashion industry survive without its foot soldiers? This is a very important question that only time will answer.
One just has to wait and see whether machines have the capacity of recreating each and every design that the human brain is capable of thinking. Until that is proved beyond doubt, there is no scope of fashion and stitching becoming a less labor intensive business.
