There are a few types of samples usually made, the main ones being prototype/toile, 1st sample, sealed/final sample, salesman sample, pre-production sample.
In sewing and fashion design, a pattern is the template from which the parts of a garment are traced onto the chosen make material before being cut out and assembled. Patterns are usually made of paper to begin with or digitally, and are sometimes made of sturdier materials like paperboard or cardboard if they need to be more robust to withstand repeated use.
Production is the process of manufacturing the final product in multiples, based on an order placed by the buyer. Usually, production takes place after Minimum order quantity requirements are met and sample approved and prices agreed.
