Product description

This well-illustrated, step-by-step introduction to grading combines the theory of pattern grading with its practical applications. This text presents the x, y orientation to familiarize readers with the concepts of computer grading. It takes a holistic approach, integrating anthropometry, size specifications, and grade guides into the grading process for women's garments with emphasis on maintaining fit and style sense. Concepts are also applicable to grading men's and children's patterns. The second edition has been re-organized to be more user-friendly, with completed grading charts and practice exercises spread throughout the chapters. New to this Edition: -- A How-to guide for pattern grading -- More focus placed on the grading process, rather than the end-result. -- Completed grading charts and practice exercises throughout the text. -- Expanded discussion of the process of developing a grading system. -- New coverage of grading design variations. -- Updated info on Anthropometric Surveys. -- More sizes and coverage of crossing grades for basic pattern blocks. -- CD-Rom includes blank grading charts that students can print out and save for future use or hand in as class assignments.
