This text offers a complete picture of the process of individual garment construction following the exact techniques used in the industry. The unique feature of this book is its presentation of each garment as a whole concept. With numerous diagrams and easy-to-follow instructions, students master the principles of design and flat pattern to create an individual item of apparel. Each chapter begins with the introduction of a basic sloper and follows with an explanation of the whole production process-making a garment from pattern drafting to garment construction, including lining, interfacing and markers. The balance of each chapter covers techniques for altering separate pattern pieces.

This is the flat patterning book we used, again I like it because it was the one I used. While Patternmaking Made Easy may be more in depth, step by step for a beginner. I like the layout of this book better. But that could be because I used it first. Read full review
