All the info you need for drafting patterns from measurements with many, many style options for each basic block - extremely clear diagrams with written details. g.: design, aliquot parts, basic body blocks, drawing blocks for individual figures, from block to pattern, the skirt, trousers, basic adaptions of the bodice blocks, the sleeve, collarsdresses, coas, jackets, etc.

Si vous lisez l'anglais, et plus particulièrement l'anglais technique de la couture, si vous désirez construire vos patrons, ne cherchez pas ailleurs, ce livre est LE livre.After drafting the block Winifred shows us how to adapt the block into styles with flares, gathers, pleats and culottes.

Paper scissors - Please don't use your fabric ones they'll get blunt very quickly if you use them for paper! This was only my second foray into pattern cutting, the first being by adaptation of a basic pattern, (Betty Foster), but by carefully following instructions I was able to create the paper pattern, and make the garment to fit me. As i have a understand of patterns already this book allows me to understand the break down so i can make my own pattern pieces. There's also a Menswear edition (royal blue cover) and Children's wear and Babywear edition (bright green cover) . There are bodice blocks, trouser blocks, skirt and dress blocks as well as flat blocks (one that use no shaping with darts.Usually, a toile is made from calico or scrap fabric with a similar drape to it (always use a stretch fabric for a stretch pattern, not calico).

The best bit is that Winifred explains a bit about the jacket seam allowances and lining construction (FYI, different to dress!You can apply standard dimensions which are included in the beginning to follow directions for each respective block. Man bekommt gute Infos über die einzelnen Bereiche, auf was zu achten ist, weshalb man dies und das macht usw. But what is the most amazing is that it teaches you how to draft different blocks with different ease in them which is great especially when you are drafting different styles.

It's wide enough for most creations (750mm wide) and if it's not quite wide enough I just stick two pieces together. Our donations to The Rainbow Centre have helped provide an education and a safe haven to hundreds of children who live in appalling conditions.

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! It doesn't cover draping or more complicated cutting but ultimately that's something you learn over time anyway. For someone who has used commercial patterns and has an understanding of how garments are made from a pattern, this is a great book. Using this book I was able to cut myself a pattern for a pair of stretch denim shorts to fit my shape.
