This classic book, now in its fifth edition, on pattern cutting by a Paris-trained expert, teacher and examiner grows ever more popular as a basic book for students, professionals and enthusiatic amateurs. Over one hundred diagrams and forty plates are combined with clear and detailed instructions for making patterns, so that the practical application of the methods is demonstrted side by side with the theory and basic principles. This book covers the basic course which for many years has been the foundation of all training at the Katinka School of Dress Designing and includes measurement and block pattern designing, yokes, dart manipulation, sleeves, collars and necklines, skirts, and the one-piece dress foundation. This new edition also features a fashion supplement (by Ann Hagger) which offers directions illustrated with forty illuminating diagrams for such topics as shirt and jacket blocks for casual wear, shoulder pad allowances, cuff and sleeve openings, and halter necks.
