  • Designing Clothes with the Flat Pattern Method

    In Designing Clothes with the Flat Pattern Method, sewers learn a technique that opens up myriad possibilities for making one-of-a-kind garments. By using basic pattern blocks called slopers, it shows sewers how to design new shapes, style lines and fashion details – creating patterns for nearly any piece of clothing they want to sew. The options are endless once sewers understand the basics of flat-pattern designing, which is explained in the book.

    The book is divided into sections: skirts, tops, and pants. While many of the same principles apply to each garment type, there are different techniques to take into account. By following extensive technique instruction in each of the three categories, 12 different garments are designed from each basic sloper and photographed on models so readers fully understand the process and the end result.

    As soon as sewers know how to design from these three slopers, that knowledge is easily transferred to designing dresses, shorts, jumpsuits and outerwear. The principles and techniques taught are also easily transferable to designing children's clothes.
