Focusing on simple, concise explanations of techniques that can often seem daunting, this introduction to pattern cutting begins with the basics and has students and designers alike adding more complex refinements in no time. Starting with the blocks for skirts and bodices (and ones for a jacket and trousers), Gillian Holman shows you how to create necklines, collars, sleeves, yokes, flounces, pleats, peg tops, pockets, and crossovers. Sketches and patterns accompany each design element.
