When you want to dress up, this is the complete guide to creating special-occasion clothes—party dresses and eveningwear. With step-by-step instructions, Dawn Cloake explains how to develop basic design blocks for a wide range of garments, and then mix and match the elements to make something that’s truly unique. She includes tips on combining pattern-cutting with modeling techniques and working with stretch fabrics.
Design elements include:
Sleeveless, backless, strapless, wrapover, ruched, draped, and asymmetrical bodices
Flare, full, close-fit, and fishtail skirts
Set-in, close-fitting, and short sleeves
Yoked, tapered, and high-waisted trousers
Jersey, Empire-line, bias-cut, paneled, backless, and strapless dresses
Low, wide, draped, and plunging necklines
Dawn Cloake was a visiting lecturer at the London College of Fashion where she taught modeling on the stand, pattern cutting, and bridalwear.
