Tailoring comprises the techniques applied for the development and construction of a tailored outfit, ranging from the simplest techniques used in the industry for mass production of tailored suits to the most refined techniques of haute couture. The aim of this text is to present the techniques of tailoring from a professional point of view. It will cover traditional and contemporary design and construction methods for tailored garments from ready-to-wear to couture details. A history of tailoring as a profession as well as profiles of contemporary designers known for their tailored garments will place the book in a professional context. A supplementary CD-ROM will include live demonstrations of all the tailoring techniques covered in the chapters. Students will learn that tailoring is more than a skill of home sewers, but rather a design method they can benefit from throughout their careers.
