Fashion Design Patternmaking Book
from C.H.I.P.S.

Patternmaking for Fashion Design
Fourth edition
by Helen Joseph-Armstrong

Renowned for its comprehensive coverage, exceptional illustrations, and clear instructions, Patternmaking for Fashion Design offers detailed yet easy-to-understand explanations of the essence of patternmaking.

Hinging on a recurring theme that all designs are based on one or more of the three major patternmaking and design principles–dart manipulation, added fullness, and contouring–it provides readers with all the relevant information necessary to create design patterns with accuracy regardless of their complexity.
