Pattern Cutting

Dennic Chunman Lo


With 3 instructional videos

This practical book shows students how to interpret the human form and look at clothing through the eyes of a designer rather than a consumer. As well as explaining the proportions of human anatomy, the book introduces key tools and takes the reader from simple pattern-cutting ideas to more advanced creative methods.

Step-by-step illustrations show how to create basic bodice, sleeve, skirt, dress and trouser blocks, and how to adapt these to create patterns for original designs. There is also a chapter dedicated to digital technology, and a selection of the author’s own creative designs encourages experimentation with the potential of pattern cutting.
