This practical, thorough book combines instruction with many easy-to-follow technical illustrations to present the principles and techniques of pattern-making. The outstanding coverage includes the three main methods of developing the basic pattern set (drafting, draping, and modifying the commercial pattern) with instructions for a standard and personal fit; introduction to the three major pattern-making principles (dart manipulation, added fullness, and contouring), applying them to various pattern parts for design variations; a stretch gauge with instructions for adapting patterns to knits; development of bifurcated garments from pants (culottes, trousers, slacks, and jeans) to actionwear (bodysuits, leotards, and swimwear). The book also features many innovative charts to simplify the pattern-making process.
