Metric Pattern Cutting for Women’s Wear, first published in 1975, provides a straightforward introductory book for students beginning courses in flat pattern cutting. This fifth edition continues to offer an introduction to the principles of pattern cutting, with a range of good basic blocks and examples of their application to garments. New for this edition is the inclusion of colour to help students recognize the different sections of the book and to enhance the garment illustrations? Colour illustrations also offer a new dimension to the updated material on computer-aided design and the CAD chapter now provides students with a clear guide to the technology. The size charts have been revised to reflect the changes in body sizing, the co-ordination with European size charts and to the way that clothes are now marketed to different sectors. The great expansion of casual wear has led to the growth of 'flat cutting' with no darting, and the section devoted to this type of cutting has been further expanded. This best-selling textbook with its tried-and-tested presentation of authoritative text and clear diagrams remains the essential purchase for students of fashion and design.

Since the first edition of Metric Pattern Cutting was published in 1975 to provide a straightforward introduction to flat pattern cutting, it has become the established textbook on the subject. The fourth edition continues to offer an introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting, with a range of good basic blocks and examples of their application to garments. The original blocks and many of the pattern adaptations have therefore been retained. However, the great expansion of casual wear, cut in jersey or stretch fabrics, has led to the growth of ‘flat cutting’ with no darting to create the shape and this edition devotes a whole section to this type of cutting. The sections on computer-aided design and grading have been updated. The size charts of body measurements have been revised, reflecting the changing shape of women’s bodies.

This fourth edition of Metric Pattern Cutting forChildren’s Wear and Babywear remains the standard textbook but has three majorimprovements. First, the sections have been re-organised to reflect changes inproducing and marketing children’s clothes. Today’spopularity of easy-fitting styles and knitted fabrics means thatbasic ‘flat’ pattern cutting is used toconstruct the majority of children’s wear and babywear andthis type of cutting is therefore emphasised in this new edition.Shaped blocks and garments, cut to fit the body form, are stillincluded, and are placed in chapters covering some school uniformgarments or more expensive fashion or formal clothes. The book nowclearly separates the sections useful to student beginners (PartsOne, Two and Three), and also offers more advanced or specialistsections for students who wish to pursue a career inchildren’s wear or for designers working in the differentmanufacturing sectors of the trade. The second change in this fourth edition is the introduction ofcolour coding to the sections; this makes it easier to identifyspecific processes in the book and enhances the illustrations. Finally, the size charts have been revised to reflect thechanges in body sizing. The clear division of the boys’ andgirls’ measurements in the charts has been in response to theway clothes are marketed and to co-ordinate with European sizecharts. ‘Plus’ charts for heavier children have alsobeen added.

Containing 2,729 entries, Kevin L. Seligman’s bibliography concentrates on books, manuals, journals, and catalogs covering a wide range of sartorial approaches over nearly five hundred years. After a historical overview, Seligman approaches his subject chronologically, listing items by century through 1799, then by decade. In this section, he deals with works on flat patterning, draping, grading, and tailoring techniques as well as on such related topics as accessories, armor, civil costumes, clerical costumes, dressmakers’ systems, fur, gloves, leather, military uniforms, and undergarments. Seligman then devotes a section to those American and English journals published for the professional tailor and dressmaker. Here, too, he includes the related areas of fur and undergarments. A section devoted to journal articles features selected articles from costume- and noncostumerelated professional journals and periodicals. The author breaks these articles down into three categories: American, English, and other. Seligman then devotes separate sections to other related areas, providing alphabetical listings of books and professional journals for costume and dance, dolls, folk and national dress, footwear, millinery, and wigmaking and hair. A section devoted to commercial pattern companies, periodicals, and catalogs is followed by an appendix covering pattern companies, publishers, and publications. In addition to full bibliographic notation, Seligman provides a library call number and library location if that information is available. The majority of the listings are annotated. Each listing is coded for identification and cross-referencing. An author index, a title index, a subject index, and a chronological index will guide readers to the material they want. Seligman’s historical review of the development of publications on the sartorial arts, professional journals, and the commercial paper pattern industry puts the bibliographical material into context. An appendix provides a cross-reference guide for research on American and English pattern companies, publishers, and publications. Given the size and scope of the bibliography, there is no other reference work even remotely like it.

Written by an international team of contributors, this book takes a critical look at key technological and scientific developments in sizing and their application. The book begins with the history of sizing systems and their affect on the mass production of ready-to-wear clothing. It reviews methods for constructing new and adapting existing sizing systems, and the standardization of national and international sizing systems. The following chapters cover marketing and fit models and present an analysis of the grading process used to create size sets. This book is an essential reference to researchers, designers, students, and manufacturers in the clothing and fashion industry.
