What's in the book

The Book

Apparel Design through Patternmaking is a fresh design-oriented text that gives fashion students a new perspective on patternmaking knowledge and skills they need to develop contemporary women’s, men’s, and children’s wear. The authors cover a comprehensive range of concepts in flat pattern drafting, such as fit, style, and design development, and their modular approach allows for flexible design options across age, gender, and size, as reflected in current fashion trends. 130 detailed principles address proper measurements; body shapes; dart manipulation; neckline, collar, and sleeve variations; fit issues and corrections; garment details; and more, all of which are easily visualized with hundreds of line drawings and photos. A metric conversion chart included in the Appendix makes this text user-friendly for international students.
