Product Description

From the Back Cover

Hundreds of stylish illustrations and clear, concise instructions are used to illustrate this flexible system of pattern cutting, offering both students and designers the means to achieve original, well–cut designs. The children′s clothing market has changed remarkably during the last decade, and this standard work has been totally revised and rewritten to reflect new developments, including the increasing importance of knitted fabrics and the fashion consciousness of today′s mothers.

She was previously a lecturer in Loughborough and London for 14 years and is continuing her research at The Nottingham Trent University. Her books on pattern cutting have become bestsellers.

Although I suppose that you require some basic understanding of how patterns work, those who do not already sew should really start with bought ones and not with trying to design their own.

This book is very clear and it does cover most basic forms and shapes, with some more complicated ones thrown in for good measure.

I am not an expert seamstrees, but I have been sewing for a long time now and found this book extremely useful and helpful.

A great companion for your pattern cutting. Not only giving you the procedure for producing your basic blocks, but also ideas for the designs themselves! Great!

Fantastic, the one and only!!! 28 Dec 2001

Format: Hardcover
Babywear & children's clothing will no longer have any secrets after you have used Winifreds' book. It explains how to make all styles for all ages and then some. It's easy to use and written in plain english! The best I've ever come across and I would highly recommend it for both beginners and advanced patterns makers.
