I first used this text in college. I attended a fashion design college in Southern California. I found it easy to follow while in school. I used it again in the fashion industry and found that when in need of a quick referance it was the easiest book to look up. I quit the fashion industry in 1999. I have recently started my own maternity line and have been living out of this book for forgotten patterning skills. I would highly recommend this book to anybody that has a passion for sewing original items. It is easy enough for a beginner to follow, yet detailed enough for a professional to referance. You can create anything from nothing using this book.
I have my own garment manufacturer in Indonesia and always wanna learn in professional way in garment pattern-making, instead of depending to my pattern maker. This book is very good, especially for whom already got basic skills in pattern-making. I found difficulties in applying all concept as written in text book due to my background has no related in garment/fashion industry. I am now searching book that will 'teach me' in basic skill for pattern making and go further into this great book. Buy it , you won't regret! Trust me......... From Lim (email@example.com id)
