An introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting, this practical book shows students how to interpret the human form and look at clothing through the eyes of a designer rather than a consumer. As well as explaining the proportions of human anatomy, the book introduces key tools and then takes the reader from simple pattern-cutting ideas to more advanced creative methods. Step-by-step illustrations show how to create basic bodice, sleeve, skirt, dress and trouser blocks, before demonstrating how to adapt these to create patterns for original designs. There is also a chapter dedicated to digital technology and how this is increasingly being used in both colleges and industry. The book also examines a selection of the author's own creative designs, encouraging experimentation with the potential of pattern cutting.
