During our recent trip to Portland, Oregon we got to see where Make it Good, well, makes everything good. It's a small factory where they screen print, cut, sew, and package their designs. I popped in on an unusually quiet Monday, but did get to witness them blocking the fabric to cut the Sails Spaghetti Strap Dress and check out all the different machines. It is amazing how each machine has a specific purpose and the many steps involved in making one garment.
A large table is centered in the room for cutting. The garment pieces are cut after the fabric has been dyed (off-site), screen printed, and dried.

A custom tool was built to make screening large pieces possible with one person.
Here the back of the Marine Rain Dress from the Fall 2015 is getting rained on.
After screening, the fabric goes in the large conveyor dryer.
Once the printing is complete and each pattern piece is cut, the garments are sewn into the tops, dresses, sweatshirts, and leggings you see in our shop.
