Winifred Aldrich, Metric Pattern Cutting for Women's Wear, 6th Edition
What I think:
I’m super stoked to be able to stock and sell the fabulous Pattern Drafting book by Winifred Aldrich. This is the latest edition. I learnt to pattern draft using this method in 1990. The techniques have not changed, showing that it spans the decades and is a classic & timeless method.
Also exceptionally useful for pattern hacking, the info & illustrations showing how to draft patterns can easily be used when hacking one of your favourite patterns as well.
Metric Pattern Cutting for Women’s Wear provides a straightforward introduction to the principles of form pattern cutting for garments to fit the body shape, and flat pattern cutting for casual garments and jersey wear.
This sixth edition remains true to the original concept: it offers a range of good basic blocks, an introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting and examples of their application into garments.
Fully revised and updated to include a brand new and improved layout, up-to-date skirt and trouser blocks that reflect the changes in body sizing, along with updates to the computer-aided design section and certain blocks, illustrations and diagrams.
This best-selling textbook still remains the essential purchase for students and beginners looking to understand pattern cutting and building confidence to develop their own pattern cutting style.
