One of the most challenging aspects of a designer's training is learning how to create patterns that utilise the characteristics of fabrics. With an ever expanding range available, an understanding of the relationship between fabric, form and pattern shape is now the most important skill a designer has to acquire. This book explores how a garment's shape is created and discusses the factors that need to be considered when creating patterns and offers you a practical method for solving problems. Its approach to design and flat pattern cutting is based on the appraisal of the fabric and body shape.
