COSTING FOR PROFIT
Wednesday, October 3  |  4:00pm - 5:00pm


It goes without saying that the simplest garments cost less to make. As styling details are added the cost of the finished garment will increase. Determining all the costs and important components that make up a cost sheet will be key to your company’s success. One missing item or miscalculation from the cost sheet could lead a major profit loss. Understanding the importance of costing your product will be the determining factor in the profitability of your company’s growth and survival.
