9780130262431: Patternmaking: A Comprehensive Reference for Fashion Design

For courses in Fashion Design, Design and Merchandising, and Textile Design.

Written by a seasoned professional Fashion Designer, this comprehensive text/reference covers all the technical aspects of developing precise professional patterns for garments, and gives students a firm foundation in the tools, concepts, and understanding necessary for success in this highly competitive industry. The focus throughout is on the procedures and principles of professional flat patternmaking using Basic Slopers (i.e., Pattern Blocks, Master Patterns, or Foundation Patterns), and on cutting and testing each completed pattern in tissue, pinned on the form completely marked. The exceptionally clear and visually detailed illustrations can easily be understood by students without having to read the accompanying text.

About the Author:

These sold to better department and specialty stores and boutiques. Simultaneously, Ms. Rosen has for 28 years been an instructor at Parsons School of Design in New York, where she currently continues to teach fashion design students.

From the Back Cover:

This text covers all the technical aspects of developing precise professional patterns for garments, and gives students a firm foundation in the tools, concepts, and understandings necessary for success in this highly competitive industry. The focus throughout is on the procedures and principles of professional flat patternmaking using Basic Slopers (i.e., Pattern Blocks, Master Patterns, or Foundation Patterns), and on cutting and testing each completed pattern in tissue, pinned on the form completely marked. This enables the student to learn, and review, the concepts for developing patterns, step-by-step and see the translation of style lines from a two-dimensional flat pattern on the table, to a three-dimensional pattern on a mannequin (fitting dummy). This text is an excellent visual learning tool, especially critical to the vast number of ESL and International students attending design schools.
