Furthermore, this book contains practical instruction on creating new prints, and many unique examples of how to cut fabric to create exciting, fashionable one-piece apparel. This is accompanied by original cut designs, complete with measurements and fabric recommendations.
Contains more than 400 excellent, professional drawings, including many step-by-step examples of how to sketch the figure. As a source of inspiration and instruction, this book is an essential tool for fashion enthusiasts, students and professionals.
