Description

The techniques Natalie Bray pioneered and perfected revolutionised dress pattern designing, assisting the rise of the modern fashion industry. Her teaching has had a profound influence on design, production and education and her works are classics: fashions change but the principles of designing patterns in the flat do not.

This book covers advanced cutting, lingerie, tailoring and children's clothes. It expands the basic course set out in Natalie Bray's Dress Pattern Designing and shows the application of the basic principles and methods to more advanced styles as well as to specialised cutting.
