Synopsis:

Learn to draft and cut patterns for women s clothing from a period spanning 400 years of history, from 1535 to 1900, including the key style elements from each era, from farthingales to crinolines, ruffs to leg o mutton sleeves. With this inspirational book you can draw on a library of basic patterns to create perfectly fitted bodices, sleeves, skirts, jackets, and much more, and the author s unique drafting method ensures that the patterns can be adapted to fit wearers of all shapes and sizes.
