Great book if you want to draft your own patterns, 26 Feb 2013
I was sick and tired of fiddling with commercial patterns to get them to fit so decided to learn how to draft my own patterns. I bought this book which came highly recommended in a sewing blog. The information in this book is invaluable from simple dart manipulation to more complex design ideas. Although written in the 80's it is still relevant for today. The book does not cover how to draft your own basic blocks but does make a great companion book to Winifred Aldrich's book on metric pattern cutting for womenswear.
