    Hey it's no worries , I got some stuff to stash away before " she " finds out what I've bought gets them Very Happy she went crackers when a box of desert DPM shirts arrived.
    They are rare love, 4 color from 80's (like she was interested), had to bribe her with an iPhone !! LoL

    Nah honest would have done it sooner but stuffs in spare room and what with the holidays all the gifts were piled on them.

    good info there anyway .

    It was sewn on Sewing machine # 60 .........

    Garment was cut as part of work order ...........#9 .......or LAY # 9.
    When a size run is put down to be cut it is first rolled of the bolt of fabric and cut depending on the size of the cutting room table.
    This then has more layers built up , depending on the size of the cutting knife , but usually 20 .
    This then has a pattern placed upon it , this pattern pieces will all be part of the same size run.
    They shall be placed in such a way to conserve as much good fabric as possible, notice some times different shades of cammo fabric being used in a jacket ?.......well there are just from a different LAY.
    So when all pattern pieces are chalked into the top ...the cutter then begins to cut the jig-saw pattern carefully marking each section with some information...such as SIZE ...4 and which LAY batch it has been cut from ....ensuring a consistent finished garment as the end result.

    The tag is just great .........
