Patternmaking for a Perfect Fit by Steffani Lincecum
505037Regular price $24.99 Save $-24.99
Create customized sewing patterns using garments you already own and love to wear. Hollywood and theater costume designer Steffani Lincecum demonstrates the rub-off, a method of pattern drafting used by fashion and costume-industry professionals that traces an existing garment or accessory without deconstructing or damaging it.
Steffani Lincecum starts with the basics, outlining two rub-off methods—tracing onto paper or draping with fabric—and explaining essential tools, materials, and sewing techniques. She then shows how to duplicate a skirt, a dress, a blouse, and a handbag, from rubbing-off the original, to creating the pattern, to cutting and sewing the new version, to making adjustments and incorporating a variety of other elements and details—not only refreshing your favorite fashions but replenishing your whole wardrobe with brand-new looks.

504057Regular price $45.00 Save $-45.00
An introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting, this practical book shows you how to interpret the human form and look at clothing through the eyes of a designer rather than a consumer. As well as explaining the proportions of human anatomy, the book introduces key tools and then takes the reader from simple pattern-cutting ideas to more-advanced creative methods.
The book includes the work of fashion designers who are masters of pattern cutting, such as Comme des GarCons, John Galliano, Yohji Yamamoto, and Issey Miyake. With photographs of final and dissected garments, along with CAD/CAM diagrams to explain how those pieces were cut, the book will gradually build an understanding of pattern cutting, and enable you to experiment and create exciting patterns for your own designs.
