Written as a beginning-level patternmaking text, "Principles of Flat Pattern Design, 4th Edition", continues to provide an added dimension to apparel design and a better understand of the processes involved in producing ready-to-wear or custom apparel. MacDonald presents step-by-step instructions and diagrams, including a representation of the completed pattern. Design problems expand on the immediately preceding topic and offer the opportunity to build on previously learned material. The new edition explains upon the last in three perspectives: technical, creative, and professional. A new chapter will instruct students on how to draft their own sloper for use in flat pattern design. An additional new chapter will discuss the creative design process associate with patternmaking and the role of patternmaking within the professional apparel industry. This Edition includes new chapters on drafting basis pattern blocks (or slopers), the design process associated with patternmaking, and patternmaking as it relates to the professional apparel industry. The updated fashion illustration reflects more contemporary styles. It features new appendices that cover average seam and hem allowances, blank spec and cost sheets, dress form and body measurement worksheets, and computer design resources. The updated and additional practice problems challenge the student to expand upon and refine their skills. The book features four new half slopers: one-dart sleeve sloper, straight sleeve sloper, two-dart bodice sloper (shoulder and waist), and front torso sloper with shoulder dart. It also includes updated and expanded glossary of key terms.
