Book ~ The Fashion Design System

$ 169.00 $ 130.00

This hard cover book has a special discounted price for a limited time only. There are a limited number of these available and once they are all gone – they are gone for good.  This edition is an earlier version of the major block drafting system, which has minor differences to the newer Fashion Design ~ Creativity & Science, but it is still relevant.

This book provides a new simplified system of pattern creation for production of women’s clothing.  As a companion resource, it provides self paced colour coded step-by-step instructions for five figure types and customisation to cater for human variation. The focus is to create the master blocks of bodice, sleeve, skirt, pant  and additional pattern creations to all the blocks.  Integral to the system are topics of basic anatomy, morphology, anthropometry, human variation and taking body measurements.  Other features include fashion illustrations, trade drawings, specifications, design room practices, concepts and processes.
