Metric Pattern Cutting for Children's Wear and Babywear
First, the sections have been re-organised to reflect changes inproducing and marketing children’s clothes. Today’spopularity of easy-fitting styles and knitted fabrics means thatbasic ‘flat’ pattern cutting is used toconstruct the majority of children’s wear and babywear andthis type of cutting is therefore emphasised in this new edition.Shaped blocks and garments, cut to fit the body form, are stillincluded, and are placed in chapters covering some school uniformgarments or more expensive fashion or formal clothes. The book nowclearly separates the sections useful to student beginners (PartsOne, Two and Three), and also offers more advanced or specialistsections for students who wish to pursue a career inchildren’s wear or for designers working in the differentmanufacturing sectors of the trade.
The second change in this fourth edition is the introduction ofcolour coding to the sections; this makes it easier to identifyspecific processes in the book and enhances the illustrations.
Finally, the size charts have been revised to reflect thechanges in body sizing. The clear division of the boys’ andgirls’ measurements in the charts has been in response to theway clothes are marketed and to co-ordinate with European sizecharts. ‘Plus’ charts for heavier children have alsobeen added.
