Since the first edition was published in 1980, "Metric Pattern Cutting for Menswear" has become established as the standard work on this subject and has proved invaluable as both a textbook for students and a reference source for the practising designer. In this fourth edition, the chapter on computer aided design has been rewritten and extended to reflect the growing importance of CAD to the industry and as a part of fashion and design courses. The rest of the book has been updated where necessary: in particular, new blocks for tailored shirts, new details on how to adapt men's blocks for women's wear, and a revision of sizing and labelling information. The Author Winifred Aldrich is a practising designer who was formerly Professor of Clothing Technology at The Nottingham Trent University. She has written six books including "Metric Pattern Cutting", "Metric Pattern Cutting for Children's Wear" and "Babywear, Fabric, Form and Flat Pattern Cutting" and "Pattern Cutting for Women's Tailored Jackets".
