Overview

This well-illustrated, step-by-step introduction to grading combines the theory of pattern grading with its practical applications. After presenting the x, y orientation to familiarize readers with the concepts of computer grading, the text takes a holistic approach, integrating anthropometry, size specifications, and grade guides into the grading process for women’s garments with emphasis on maintaining fit and style sense. Concepts are also applicable to grading men’s and children’s patterns. The 2nd Edition is user friendly, with completed grading charts and practice exercises spread throughout the chapters.
