Editors Note A practical guide to advanced pattern making aimed at fashion students and serious home dressmakers, Pattern- drafting for Fashion: The Basics is a comprehensive guide to making your own patterns from start to finish. Every garment must follow precise rules of carefully structured design, to which even the most experienced couturiers must adhere. These rules of construction are easy to apply if one is given step-by-step instructions but too often, dressmakers use block templates without fully understanding the structural evolution of the garment they are making. Pattern-drafting for Fashion provides all the necessary instructions to enable you to make your own clothing, while at the same time understanding the detailed construction of every type of garment. As well as all your basic patterns, chapters featuring necklines, collars, sleeves, pockets and other techniques demonstrate how to perfect the detailing of your patterns are included and once you have made your basic block you will be able to modify and personalize your design. Beautifully illustrated and packed with handy tips, this practical and professional text is a must for anyone who wants to succeed in fashion design.
