What's in the book
The BookThis text offers a complete picture of the process of individual garment construction following the exact techniques used in the industry. The unique feature of this book is its presentation of each garment as a whole concept. With numerous diagrams and easy-to-follow instructions, students master the principles of design and flat pattern to create an individual item of apparel. Each chapter begins with the introduction of a basic sloper and follows with an explanation of the whole production process-making a garment from pattern drafting to garment construction, including lining, interfacing and markers. The balance of each chapter covers techniques for altering separate pattern pieces.
