Awesome reference for patternmeking! July 30, 2011
by
An amazing textbook! Everything you want and need! Great for Starters, Advanced Pattern Drafters, Teachers and Students! Easy to read and very organized! I recommend this textbook to anyone who is wanting to learn pattern drafting or have a reference to pattern drafting techniques! The textbook I ordered was exactly the same as what they had listed. I am very pleased with them and will order other books, if possible, in the future.
