Written by an experienced teacher of pattern making, tailoring, and dressmaking, this book is filled with simple, profusely illustrated lessons in the principles of pattern making and design. Here are the tools by which you can convert your own design ideas into working patterns. The first nine chapters deal with such specific details as darts, sleeves, necklines, closings, and silhouettes. The last chapter shows how to put all this information together to make the complete pattern you want... a pattern designed especially for you.
You can also adjust commercial patterns to suit your individual needs, can enjoy seeing fashion with a new eye, and create beautiful clothes.
