Students will master the slash and pivot methods of flat pattern design and understand how garment design variations are derived from each other. Simple illustrations demystify the patternmaking process for the beginner student, showing how a few basic techniques can lead to endless design possibilities. New to this Edition: Updated design variations reflect current styles Improved lesson layouts foster even better understanding of concepts Comprehensive glossary defines important terms Index facilitates navigation from one technique to another
