Hundreds of stylish illustrations and clear, concise instructions are used to illustrate this flexible system of pattern cutting, offering both students and designers the means to achieve original, well-cut designs. The children's clothing market has changed remarkably during the last decade, and this standard work has been totally revised and rewritten to reflect new developments, including the increasing importance of knitted fabrics and the fashion consciousness of today's mothers.
