Design-it-yourself Clothes : Patternmaking Simplified Paperback

Description

This book explains everything a reader needs to customise sewing patterns and achieve perfect fitting clothes.

It reveals how to measure a body and draft a perfect-fitting skirt, T-shirt, button-down shirt, dress and trousers.

It also features insider tips, explanations and how to endlessly alter patterns throughout.

Many modern sewers are looking to draft their own patterns - but the only books that teach the skill are dry and outdated. "Design-It-Yourself Clothes" is a comprehensive guide to pattern drafting from concept to execution by Cal Patch, a fashion designer with a modern aesthetic.

Cal offers 5 key projects, each with 4 variations. She covers how to measure your body and draft a perfect-fitting skirt, T-shirt, button-down shirt, dress and trousers.

Insider tips, explanations and exercises are sprinkled throughout, plus readers are shown how to create patterns from the clothes already in their wardrobes - without ripping out a single seam!
