About this deal

I'm all for creating and designing your own sewing patterns so that you can get more from your sewing projects and this is why I am trying to make pattern cutting as accessible as possible to everyone. The actual content is great and it fits in my handbag which is AMAZING compared to other books of its level. Es ist leicht verständlich, auch wenn man jetzt nicht unbedingt gut Englisch kann versteht man durch die gute Bebilderung eigentlich echt alles was das Schnitte anfertigen angeht.

Pattern Cutting Ruler - I use the Pattern Master ruler because I find the size covers most outfits I make. There is also a lot of information on how to draft a variety of different designs for tops, dresses, sleeves, pants, skirts etc. Si vous lisez l'anglais, et plus particulièrement l'anglais technique de la couture, si vous désirez construire vos patrons, ne cherchez pas ailleurs, ce livre est LE livre.As before we start with some blocks (mostly T-shirts) and move into adaptations like tracksuits, dresses and hoods. If you use a normal pencil then the lead will get thicker and thicker meaning you add the odd millimetre here and there to your patterns. But what is the most amazing is that it teaches you how to draft different blocks with different ease in them which is great especially when you are drafting different styles.

After drafting the block Winifred shows us how to adapt the block into styles with flares, gathers, pleats and culottes. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This third edition remains true to the original concept, offering a range of good basic blocks with an introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting.The reason that Metric Pattern Cutting is so great is that it covers BOTH of these key skills and waaay more!

Trousers are next on the list and this section is much the same as the skirt section but with trousers as our focus! This sixth edition remains true to the original concept: it offers a range of good basic blocks, an introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting and examples of their application into garments. Es wird nicht lange um etwas kompliziert herum geredet wie es in den deutschen Büchern leider immer der Fall ist (da tu ich mich als gelernte und lange Zeit in diesem Beruf tätige Kraft schon manchmal schwer) sondern man kommt sofort auf den Punkt und erklärt wieso und weshalb!

It includes instructions for using stretch and jersey fabrics as well as the more traditional woven fabrics. You can apply standard dimensions which are included in the beginning to follow directions for each respective block. You can use the industry standards or your own measurements and it deals with sloping shoulders and all the weird forms we take up over years!

If you're a fashion student, dressmaker or just an experimental crafter with a desire for making your own sewing patterns, this book is for you. Discover the joy of reading with us, your trusted source for affordable books that do not compromise on quality. This best–selling textbook with its tried–and–tested presentation of authoritative text and clear diagrams remains the essential purchase for students of fashion and design. You might find it helpful to use our free Introduction to Pattern Cutting eBook to give you a better understanding of all the pattern cutting symbols and terminology. This best-selling textbook still remains the essential purchase for students and beginners looking to understand pattern cutting and building confidence to develop their own pattern cutting style.I am a novice sewer but was very eager to understand the cutting process and the magic of transforming 2D into 3D. This first section is also where we are introduced to some tools and pattern making rules about smoothing lines, adding seam allowances and labelling pieces. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. I'm currently doing some courses in simple pattern cutting and my tutor uses this book, though she does suggest trying blocks from different books as they do vary and it's important to find a block that suits your own figure if you're using it for personal garment construction. The last bit is CAD led design which is useful if you’re heading into the industry but if not then you don’t need this section!
