Pattern Cutting Made Easy : A step-by-step introduction to dressmaking Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Starting with the basic blocks for skirts and bodices (and also a jacket and trouser block), Gillian Holman shows you how to add the refinements, such as necklines, collars, sleeves, yokes, flounces, pleats, peg tops, pockets, and crossovers.

Each design element is accompanied by sketches and patterns.

It is a step-by-step introduction to the techniques of pattern cutting for fashion students and amateur dressmakers.
