What's in the book

The Book

This is the most comprehensive teaching tool for learning and mastering draping techniques. The illustrations and the text for each drape are clear and explicit.Laura K. Kidd, Southern Illinois University, USA

Learn to drape fabric on a dress form to create your own patterns.

The step-by-step instructions are organized from basic to advanced projects using both imperial and metric measurements, so you don’t have to convert measurements. The book includes a wide variety of fashion styles, from bodices to bias-cut gowns. Intermediate and advanced design variations include an off-shoulder sleeve design and a peplum design. More than 1,000 two-color line drawings show you each draping step.

- Checklists to evaluate and analyze designs
- Cross-referencing of techniques across chapters
- Online STUDIO includes video tutorials explaining key draping skills and techniques
- Lay-flat binding makes the book easy to use while draping garments
