About this deal

I'm currently doing some courses in simple pattern cutting and my tutor uses this book, though she does suggest trying blocks from different books as they do vary and it's important to find a block that suits your own figure if you're using it for personal garment construction. I think the fact that almost every pattern cutter that I know has a copy of this book speaks for itself! Making a toile means that you'll be able to see if the design you were envisioning has worked, the fit and size are right and all before you've spent time and money making the final garment. The great expansion of casual wear has led to the growth of ′flat cutting′ with no darting, and the section devoted to this type of cutting has been further expanded. The fifth edition continues to offer an introduction to the principles of pattern cutting, with a range of good basic blocks and examples of their application to garments.

I am a novice sewer but was very eager to understand the cutting process and the magic of transforming 2D into 3D. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.The best bit is that Winifred explains a bit about the jacket seam allowances and lining construction (FYI, different to dress! They're such a time and money saver in the long run, especially if you're about to make something in a very expensive fabric or you think you'll make the pattern again and again. Neuware -Metric Pattern Cutting for Women's Wear provides a straightforward introduction to the principles of form pattern cutting for garments to fit the body shape, and flat pattern cutting for casual garments and jersey wear. However, the great expansion of casual wear, cut in jersey or stretch fabrics, has led to the growth of 'flat cutting' with no darting to create the shape and this edition devotes a whole section to this type of cutting.

Man bekommt gute Infos über die einzelnen Bereiche, auf was zu achten ist, weshalb man dies und das macht usw. It includes instructions for using stretch and jersey fabrics as well as the more traditional woven fabrics. hier können sich mal gewisse deutsche "Systeme" (um keine Namen zu nennen) eine Scheibe von abschneiden.

It’s made up of the instructions for drafting a range of blocks but doesn’t show us any examples of ways to adapt the blocks immediately. Colour illustrations also offer a new dimension to the updated material on computer–aided design and the CAD chapter now provides students with a clear guide to the technology.

There is also a lot of information on how to draft a variety of different designs for tops, dresses, sleeves, pants, skirts etc. For someone who has used commercial patterns and has an understanding of how garments are made from a pattern, this is a great book.You can apply standard dimensions which are included in the beginning to follow directions for each respective block. This sixth edition remains true to the original concept: it offers a range of good basic blocks, an introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting and examples of their application into garments. Neuware - Metric Pattern Cutting for Women's Wear provides a straightforward introduction to the principles of form pattern cutting for garments to fit the body shape, and flat pattern cutting for casual garments and jersey wear.

It is ideal for someone with some experience of pattern cutting or someone who is very familiar with using sewing patterns but it's also a great book for a beginner to use in collaboration to learning how to draft sewing patterns.Winifred Aldrich does a separate book about tailoring which is really detailed and I would highly recommend it if you’re after more tailoring knowledge! I bought this new edition for my daughter and will be borrowing it back as it has some very useful additional chapters to my original.
