I have been sewing garments for a long time now, but always with the normal paper patterns that you can draft yourself or buy online or in sewing magazines. But through project runway, I got interested in the use of draping techniques, especially when you want to design you own clothes. I'm not saying that this can't be done with a paper pattern, but on the dress form you instantly see if a design is good or bad. So, I wanted to learn how to drape. If they gave draping classes in my part of the world I would have taken one, but seeing how they don't I have to teach myself. So I started looking for a good book that would teach me the basics of draping but would also grow further with me to intermediate and - hopefully - advanced skill level. And this book does just exactly that. It starts out very simple, with materials and tools and give you an overview of different sewing terms. After that you start with the basics. A bodice, a skirt, pants. Al this is done with very clear step by step instructions that are very easy to follow. After the basics you start with some intermediate skill projects. She even has a whole chapter on certain materials like knits, which are a bit tricky to sew, if you don't know how. Also on collars, ruffles, casual and formal dress designs... the list is endless. The book ends with advanced designs, like the cowl (which I've wanted to learn how to make for ages now), jackets, collars, the casual and formal dresses and fitting methods. I was a little bit hesitant about buying because of the price. But I know that it will take me years to try out every single design in this book, so I believe the price was well worth it. Oh yes, you will need a dress form for this.

Buy it. I know that will cost you more than $90, but it really worth the money. It is an amazing draping class - even for me, a begginner drapist. The book has a lot of easy to follow illustrations, so it makes the patterns construction a piece of cake. And avoids all of that measuring, tracing on paper, transfer to fabric.. Have fun! ;)

This was a required text book for my daughter. About 1/2 way through the semester she discovered there were blank pages in her copy. We were outside of the 30 day return date, so I had to chat with someone to get a return for refund authorized. Amazon did this, but we also had to re-order the book & it had gone up significantly in price. Lesson learned is that from now on when I purchase books, particularly textbooks, I will check them carefully as soon as they arrive. If you order this book, you need to look through it carefully when you receive it, because I doubt my daughter's copy was the only defective one.

This book has a lot of information and yet, never having draped before I feel very comfortable with it. Easy to understand

I had to buy this for my draping class in college. While it is a great book, has clear instructions and great illustrations it's missing pages. For something that costs $90 I would expect better publishing standards.
