While most tailoring books begin with the selection of ready-made patterns and conclude with the assembly of the various pieces, Tailored Fashion Design begins a few steps earlier—in the design process. Students will learn to consider tailoring as a design element, rather than just a method of garment assembly. The book guides readers from inspiration through pattern manipulation and garment construction of their own tailored jacket designs for both men and women. Students will gain a greater appreciation of tailoring as a valuable skill that will enable them to not only display their ability to put together garments, but also showcase their creativity as designers.
