From the Back Cover

More Dress Pattern Designing covers advanced cutting, lingerie, tailoring and children’s patterns. This volume expands the basic course of Natalie Bray’s Dress Pattern Designing and shows the application of the basic principles and methods to more advanced styles as well as to specialised cutting.

Part 1 is devoted to a thorough examination of the princess cut, the construction and special problems of the kimono, the raglan, drop-shoulder and other elaborate sleeves and armholes, and a variety of draped styles.

Part 2 shows the application of these methods to several branches of specialist cutting: lingerie cutting, tailored and sportswear garments and patterns for children of different ages.

This edition includes a Fashion Supplement which provides more information on the cutting of trouser blocks with subsequent various styling and details on trouser fastenings, turn-ups and other features. A jumpsuit block is provided with suggestions for development. The essential subject of grading is also set out clearly and concisely
