Patternmaking for Fashion Design, Fifth Edition, is based on two systems: Drafting, which relies on measurements to create patterns, and Flat Patternmaking, which relies on previously developed patterns to create design patterns. Geared toward fashion design students as well as practitioners, this best-selling textbook combines instruction with easy-to-follow technical illustrations to present three major patternmaking principles and accompanying techniques: dart manipulations, added fullness, and contouring. In mastering these skills, the patternmaker will be able to change a designer's two-dimensional sketch into pattern shapes that create a three-dimensional garment. - Back cover.

This text covers all the technical aspects of developing precise professional patterns for garments, and gives students a firm foundation in the tools, concepts, and understandings necessary for success in this highly competitive industry. The focus throughout is on the procedures and principles of professional flat patternmaking using Basic Slopers (i.e., Pattern Blocks, Master Patterns, or Foundation Patterns), and on cutting and testing each completed pattern in tissue, pinned on the form completely marked. This enables the student to learn, and review, the concepts for developing patterns, step-by-step and see the translation of style lines from a two-dimensional flat pattern on the table, to a three-dimensional pattern on a mannequin (fitting dummy). This text is an excellent visual learning tool, especially critical to the vast number of ESL and International students attending design schools.

After reading this book, you won't just be able to follow pattern making instructions - you will actually understand how and why pattern making works and be able to adapt the principles for yourself. The perfect introduction to the core principles of garment construction, “How Patterns Work” simplifies and explains the relationship between pattern making and the body. Instead of learning hundreds of separate pattern making processes, “How Patterns Work” will break the process into simple principles that can be applied to any pattern change. "How Patterns Work" has been designed with: Over 70,000 words of text content. Over 250 diagrams in crisp black, white and grey. A clear table of contents for easy reference. No previous knowledge of patterns or sewing required. Chapters start from zero assumed knowledge and build slowly in complexity with step by step examples and clear diagrams. The first section of the book will answer questions such as: What are darts and how do they work with the curves of the body? What is seam allowance and how much should you add to your pattern? How are body measurements used to create accurate patterns? What are blocks and how are they different to patterns? What do the basic blocks look like? This first section of the book will also explain the overall anatomy of a pattern including the definition and uses of notches, drill holes, grain lines and body guidelines. All of the examples are shown in relation to how the pattern will ultimately be sewn, so that the principles become more relevant to real sewn garments. A large section of the book is devoted to pattern examples that can be used as a reference library to adapt and change to suit your own pattern making needs. The examples that are covered in this first section include: Adding a seam line. Removing a seam line. Moving the position of a dart. Turning darts into seam lines. Turning seam lines into darts. Increase volume evenly. Decrease volume evenly. Increase volume around a point. Decrease volume around a point. Using darts to increase volume. All of the examples listed above are shown using both the cut and spread, and the pivot flat pattern making methods, and then also shown as a draped section of fabric on a mannequin, allowing you to really see the pattern changes as both a flat pattern, and in a more tangible 3D form. Whether you are a novice fashion student, or an experienced home sewer this is the perfect book to simplify the terminology and principles behind complex pattern making books and sewing courses. Designed as a companion guide to other pattern making texts, “How Patterns Work” consolidates pattern making methods into simple, memorable processes - making this book a perfect refresher guide for even the most advanced pattern maker. Please note that this book does not include paper patterns and does not cover specific pattern drafting exercises. Instead, this book will provide you with an overview to simplify the way you think about pattern making, arming you with knowledge that can be applied to any pattern change.

If you’ve ever watched Project Runway and wished you were a contestant, or you’re simply ready to take your sewing to a new level, Design-It-Yourself Clothes teaches you the fundamentals of modern patternmaking so that you, too, can create your own inspired clothing. Until now, the aspiring DIY fashionista has been hard-pressed to find self-teaching tools other than dry textbooks or books with outdated looks. Finally, in Design-It-Yourself Clothes, former Urban Outfitters designer Cal Patch brings her youthful aesthetic to a how-to book. If you want to wear something you can’t find on store racks and make clothes that express your individual style, or if you’ve reached a sewing plateau and want to add pattern drafting to your repertoire, Design-It-Yourself Clothes is the book you have been waiting for. In five key projects (each with four variations)–a perfect-fitting dress, T-shirt, button-down shirt, A-line skirt, and pants–Patch shares the art of patternmaking. At its core, it’s much simpler than you think. Patch covers everything an intermediate sewer needs to know in order to become a fabulous fashion designer, from designing the patterns, taking your own measurements, and choosing fabrics to actually sewing the clothing. You will also learn how to stylize patterns by using darts, waistbands, patch pockets, and ruffles. Patch offers tips, explanations, options, and exercises throughout that will make the design process that much easier. But besides showing you how to create clothing from scratch, she also teaches you how to rub off patterns from existing clothing–so if you have a pair of pants that you love but are worn out, or you have your eye on a piece in the store with a prohibitive price tag, you can figure out how to get the looks you want by using your own two hands.

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. Finally, the book looks at the work of fashion designers who are masters of pattern cutting, such as Comme des GarCons, John Galliano, Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake. With photographs of final and dissected garments, along with CAD/CAM diagrams to explain how those pieces were cut, the book will gradually build an understanding of pattern cutting, and enable students to experiment and create exciting patterns for their own designs.

Pattern Design: Fundamentals is an ideal book for beginners to the field of fashion design as well as self-guided learners. Pattern Design: Fundamentals covers the basics of pattern making, terminology and drafting concepts. This book is different than all other drafting books of its kind. This drafting book combines knowledge of drafting with sewing and construction. The best way to understand how patterns are drafted is to understand how the drafts are constructed, why certain pattern markings are used and in what order a pattern should be constructed. Understanding the construction, solidifies one's drafting knowledge, connecting the dots of two-dimensional drafting to the three-dimensional finished garment. Pattern Design was developed by designer and educator Jennifer Lynne Matthews-Fairbanks. Fairbanks years of instructing at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising coupled with her years running her own design and sewing studio, make for the ideal combination of teaching to the visual and self-guided learner. Chapters 1 and 2 introduce you to the tools, terms and pattern markings, including fabrics used, grainlines of patterns and the grain of a fabric. You will create a simple pattern with all appropriate markings from an unaltered sloper and learn each part of all slopers used throughout the book. In the first section, "Shape," Pattern Design walks you through manipulating darts with the pivot and slash and spread methods, creating pleats, tucks and gathers. Each chapter details the basics of construction in order to complete each exercise fully and utilizes several different slopers to show how each concept can be translated to different garment types. Section two, "Line," covers style lines (also called seam lines) and combines style lines with design elements from the "Shape" section. The third section, "Details," includes beginner design detail concepts such as pockets, extensions, collars and banding. Pocket exercises include patch pockets, in-seam pockets and inset pockets. Extensions for buttons and placket for blouses are also demonstrated. The banding chapter covers simple waistbands and sleeve cuffs. The forth and final section covers "Finishes." Finishes include facings, zipper insertion and basic hemming. Pattern Design: Fundamentals covers the material that most fashion design students learn in their first year of schooling. The book is an ideal guide for self-learners or for classroom instruction. Pattern Design: Fundamentals is the first book in this pattern making series of books.
