My book has finally been published and is available on Amazon.
The concept for my book started way back in 2009. I researched and practiced various methods to draft the basic bodice block, completely different to the method I learned at the fashion academy. It did not take me long to present the perfect method to my students back then. The book is a great companion for all home sewers and dressmakers, as well as self guided learners. Best of all is the fact that it is suitable for all body types and sizes. You learn to take accurate body measurements from a clearly illustrated chart. Learn to draft patterns for dresses, jackets, skirts, trousers, sportswear and even a full swimsuit. In the last chapter I have also included a standard body measurement chart, taken from average bodies, for those who would like to make a range of ready to wear garments. Here is a sneak peek into some of the chapters in the book. There are quite a few sewing tips, even though it is primarily a pattern drafting book.
All illustrations were done by me, hence the red eyes that were seen in some of my blog posts.
The book starts off with a few easy projects to master the basics of pattern drafting.
Dart manipulation is discussed.
Different necklines are illustrated.
Draft different types of skirts.
Learn to draft trousers with hip pockets and Jeans.
Learn to draft shorts with inset pockets and different styles culottes.
