If the patternmaker was awesome and the sewing pool was stable, there was high operator confidence (in the pattern/pattern maker), muscle memory and material handling experience to pick up the lack. That said, no one should go without notches because the goal is quality construction, not showing off by going without notches.

When I was younger and “knew” so much more than I do now, I drafted in ink.

They were for dress shirts (traditional women’s cut). Is this a problem with the factory or has something to do with a larger operation? They also did not notch their suit sleeves…you’re probably rolling somewhere at reading this. The patternmaker had 40 yrs. experience and was very good. My grandfather used her successfully for decades before he retired.
