Product description

From the Publisher

* No other pattern cutting book considers the effects of individual fabrics.
* Getting the right cut for the right fabric is the key to good design.
* As many new fabrics become available, an understanding of the relationship between the design and the character of the fabric has become essential.
* The new edition takes account of important new developments in fabrics – new fibres, new methods of fabric construction and new fabric finishes.
* Provides a creative base for Winifred Aldrich's other pattern cutting books.

From the Inside Flap

One of the more difficult aspects of a designer’s training is learning how to create patterns that make full use of the characteristics of individual fabrics. This book discusses the factors that need to be considered and offers a unique, practical method for solving some of the problems that will be encountered.

The Second Edition has been particularly directed at student learning. It continues to demonstrate the importance of identifying particular fabric qualities, but has now introduced simpler methods of fabric assessment to encourage students to estimate the handle of fabrics.

Other revisions include updated technical information on new fabric developments, and an extra section has been added on figure poses to help students produce accurate and proportionate technical drawings of garments.

The Author

Winifred Aldrich was Professor of Clothing Technology at The Nottingham Trent University. She continues to research and write on the history and the current practices of pattern cutting technology. Her books on pattern cutting have become bestsellers.
