Item details

Love a garment, but now it’s the wrong size or is worn, or you want it in a different fabric. Make a new pattern from what you own.

“Using more than 250 clear and elegant line drawings, the author introduces her own method of pattern drafting - probably the easiest technique ever recorded in a book. You'll learn step by step how to make patterns for: dresses (with capped, kimono and set-in sleeves; inseam and patch pockets, and more); skirts (any length and style, including straight and A-line); shirts (also jackets, windbreakers, pullovers and even unlined and reversible coats); pants (from short shorts to culottes and palazzos); the ultimate pattern - original designs created by you! Express your designs and ideas. Make your own patterns with taste. Or copy expensive classics with ease economically. Illustrated by the author.”
