5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book 3 May 2012
By ronnoco
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for budding fashion designers 6 Mar 2012
By LK
Format:Paperback
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!
