Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stretch fabrics are more popular than ever, from Juicy Coutures sweats to the trendy, ready-to-wear styles found at H&M. Stretch fabrics have long been a staple of designer fashion as well—from Missonis colorful knits to Donna Karans basics. Designing and Patternmaking for Stretch Fabrics provides the design student or working designer with the essential information for understanding the specifics of knit fabrics and the patternmaking process for different garments. Fibers, dyes, treatments, care, and fabric sources are discussed, along with the principles of sizing and measuring for womens, mens, petite, plus, and half sizes. Chapters focusing on particular garments begin with a draft of a sloper. Numerous illustrations and diagrams demonstrate the effects of draping, gathering, shirring, ruffling, and making adjustments as needed to flatter the wearer. These instructions will put students skills and creativity to work with everything they need to turn an ordinary garment into one of original designer quality.
