This book seeks to reintroduce into the fashion scene techniques that have been lost to the modern dress designer pattern cutter. Today, drafting techniques with their inherent quasi-scientific theories are over-emphasized and the basic premise that clothes have to relate to the intrinsic qualities and properties of the fabrics used and the shape and stance of the figure are easily lost. The styles selected for this book are good examples of the principles that go to make the skill of modelling into a successful pattern-cutting ability. This book is divided into three broad sections. The first section deals with the modelling techniques for 14 dress, skirt and trouser styles. These garments have been selected for their silhouettes. Section one contains garments that are developed from lengths of fabric in the time-honoured manner. Section two illustrates three wedding dresses and discusses the fabrics and embellishments that went into their creation. This section also illustrates the cutting of veils and trains. Section three describes and illustrates skills that are needed to cut a whole range of garment styles and reveals the techniques of modelling some of Lily Silberberg's favourite designs.
