Blanks are garments that are completely put together, but with no button holes or top stitching. A blank is wearable when you receive it. It is not a bundle of pieces that have to be sorted out and joined together. You will know that a blank is a fit before doing alot of work on it only to find it does not fit and cannot be returned. It is enough for many customers to put their effort in the hand finishing of the garment. Even better, blanks cost only a little more than other makers charge for a kit!
