Description

A guide to getting the most from sewing patterns, from choosing the right size to translating flat shapes into wearable garments. It shows you how to change the shaping, length and detailing to suit your own body shape, taste and style, and once you've mastered that it shows you how to make a new pattern out of a shop-bought pattern and even how to draft your own patterns from scratch. This book is suitable for the amateur as well as the more experienced dressmaker.
