5.0 out of 5 stars Basic pattern drafting design shifts 6 Nov. 2011
By Francine Lefkowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For a sewer who has a basic pattern that fits, this book is very easy to understand directions on how to change the basic pattern for many, many designs. It was clear, with simple pictures that made the instructions easy to follow. Great learning tool for a professional learning to design, and for the amateur who would like to make changes in her patterns without constantly purchasing new patterns.
To learn how to draft a basic pattern, or sloper, this is not the right book -- it doesn't give directions for turning measurements into a pattern. But for what it does, it does very, very well. Loved it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Technical Reference Book! 24 Jun. 2014
By Textile Queen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First saw this book in the local university library. It's the first time illustrations have shown how much easier draping is compared to using tons of measurements and then trying to draft a pattern. Draping is right on the body so it's really "you" and it is so much quicker than drafting. I am so happy to be able to add this book to my sewing library!!!
