Patternmaking & Garment Construction

Click for books in the library:

Whether you prefer Aldrich or Armstrong, you will need to avail yourself of a great patternmaking textbook to help with all your patternmaking - whether specific (drafting cullottes) or general (how to make a button extension), and everything in between. Being able to read and interpret patternmaking and contruction books is essential for you to be in control of your own destiny as a maker. No patternmaking textbook will have your exact style - how could it? - but these resources will equip you to creatively develop your own approaches and piece together the solutions you need, for your pattern.
