One of the most challenging aspects of a designer's training is learning how to create patterns that utilize the characteristics of fabrics. With an ever expanding range available, an understanding of the relationship between fabric, form and pattern shape is now the most important skill a designer has to acquire. Fabrics and Pattern Cutting explores how a garment's shape is created and discusses the factors that need to be considered when creating patterns and offers you a practical method for solving problems.
