This is one of the best books ever for Pattern Cutting, once you get used to working the scales out and your accurate body measurements it's so easy to make clothes that actually fit, *AT LAST* I did a 3 day intensive course on pattern cutting recently and this book was used and highly recommeneded. Expensive but well worth it.

Designing Patterns - A Fresh Approach to Pattern Cutting (Fashion & Design)

When I first started a BTEC in pattern cutting, I had very little idea, and this book helped a lot with it's simple lay out and directions. Money well spent!

This book got me through my fashion design course at college and once I was finished with the college copy, I bought my own. It gives instructions for making basic made-to-measure garments which are all easily adaptable to create your own designs. Absolutely excellent and I would recommend to any budding fashion designers out there!

My daughter has just started a three year fashion course at Uni and this book was the one recommended by her tutor. It explains all the basic pattern cutting methods, in easy to understand terms, it was delivered quickly, and was cheaper than buying on eBay .
