Description

Following the style of her previous books, Winifred Aldrich now provides a simple but comprehensive system of pattern cutting for children's wear, featuring basic blocks which can be adapted for creative design. The book is based on a uniquely up-to-date sizing system - no other modern system is available at present. Hundreds of illustrations and instructions are used to illustrate this system of pattern cutting, offering both students and designers the means to achieve original, well-cut designs.show more
