Lingerie Design : A Complete Course, Paperback / softback Book

Lingerie Design : A Complete Course Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Lingerie and sleepwear is a large sector of the fashion industry.

Most brands from designer to the high street have a lingerie line and most fashion design courses will have a lingerie elective.

In this book, Pamela Powell takes a very practical approach, showing how to design and construct lingerie, sleepwear and foundation garments.

Step-by-step illustrations demonstrate the basic blocks and show how to manipulate them into different styles.

Advice is given about how to work with the speciality fabrics used in the industry including woven, knit, power stretch and bias-cut fabrics.

Specially commissioned photographs and diagrams are used to showcase construction techniques specific to lingerie including boning, elastic and lace insertion and how and where to use the myriad of closures available.

A final chapter on embellishment shows how to add unique and personal touches to garments and apply that luxurious finish.
