Pattern making describes the process of creating a two-dimensional garment diagram or template, drafted on a flat surface from either measurements or transferred from a draped muslin. The starting point of a pattern is a sloper, which is used as the template for creating design variations that are subsequently cut and sewn in fabric.

You will learn how to create a basic sleeve sloper before moving on to skirts, bodices, collars and pants. Each lesson is illustrated in meticulous detail by step-by-step photographs, charts, diagrams and catwalk photos. Videos to accompany this book are available at
