A guide to pattern cutting, this offers amateur dressmakers the chance to design their own clothes by showing them how to draft their own patterns. It includes a free pattern pack with full-size block patterns for sizes 10-20 showing the basic shape of skirt, bodice, sleeve or trousers and fashion sketches offer a variety of simple outfits to choose from. Clear, easy-to-follow instructions accompanied by diagrams enable the reader to adjust the basic block for individual figure requirements wherever necessary. The book should prove useful to those wishing to draft patterns occasionally for variations on sleeves or collars as well as the more ambitious dressmaker wishing to make a whole outfit. The author has taught dressmaking to young and adult students at all levels for many years. Her television presentations including "Houseparty", "Dressmaker", "Weekend Wardrobe" and "Children's Wardrobe", together with her many dressmaking demonstrations and fashion shows in leading stores throughout the country have made hers a household name.
