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 the human body, the book introduces key tools and then takes the reader from simple patternmaking ideas to more advanced creative methods.

Step-by-step illustrations show how to create basic bodice, sleeve, skirt, dress, and pant slopers, 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 patternmaking.

Dennic Chunman Lo is Director of the Creative Pattern Cutting course at London College of Fashion. He has his own fashion label, Lo and Cabon.
