It explains not only the methods of cutting but also the reasoning behind the methods, so that you can learn to adapt the information to other situations. All the instructions have been tried and tested - so they work. This book: offers many 'tips of the trade' to give a professional appearance to completed garments; encourages you to experiment in textbook size by supplying one-fifth scale blocks; demonstrates how to make the fullest use of patterns as practiced in industry; and, considers the influence of choice of fabric on the way a pattern works.
