'As the name suggests, Drape Drape focuses on draped designs, which vary from traditional pattern cutting designs as they use the slack and grain in different fabrics to bring out its character and create a more flowing softer design to the garments. ... This is a great book to introduce anyone to exploring the different draping techniques available'.
Beth Edmondson, The Sewing Directory
