For an undergraduate course in Patternmaking.
Renowned for its comprehensive coverage, exceptional illustrations, and clear instructions, This hallmark text offers detailed yet easy-to-understand explanations of the essence of patternmaking. Hinging on a recurring theme that all designs are based on one or more of the three major patternmaking and design principles—dart manipulation, added fullness, and contouring—it provides students with all the relevant information necessary to create design patterns with accuracy regardless of their complexity.
