Would you post the link please? OK, ignore that request. I actually followed the link on your page that I had totally missed. Sorry about that. Thanks for these links Kathleen, I lost hours last night downloading books! Oh my goodness!
Free! Italian pattern drafting book
Thanks Kathleen! This is a great find. And the illustrations, beautiful and very clear ….. So italiano. This is fun! Need to take some days of for studying now!
Happy New Great and enjoyable Year everyone! Merci Kathleen!!!! Thankyou so much, can never have enough drafting books, I am still wanting the drafting for knits book.
Pity the instructions are just a bit … odd. What size of paper is the original book? I am wondering that since the measurements are scaled and if I print them in a different format it will be all off.
Best regards, Ana.
Happy new year Kathleen!! Thank you for the post, I can never have too many drafting books. Wishing you the best in this new year! The jackets are very strange, the trousers not that good, and the tailcoats are just humorous. At least, if some patternmakers use instructions like these, I now understand many things we see in ready-to-wear.
It does give so good ideas of style manipulation for people who already have some good basic blocs, though. Plus, when bored, a good laugh is always welcome. Paul Grassart: Why do you say that the mens sections are off? I am not a terribly skilled patternmaker, so if you could tell me what is wrong I would greatly appreciate it.
Unless the site can scale. The problem with. Every time I think I have found a reason to download a site I find a reason not to download. Oh, well. There was a question about page size. Likely it is A4 which means it will scale smaller if printed on Letter sized paper. You can get to the school in the link above and maybe you could post a question there as to what they writer means about degrees.
It may have something to do with the way garments are sized in Europe; just a guess. I can download something by right clicking it and saving. Am I missing something? Clara It depends upon how your Operating System is set up.
It seems that yours is set to open a new window, but not download to that window — rather, your programming then tries to save to a file location on your computer.
If you are getting a different format, search online to find a program to open the file. When I save something and do not have a known program to open the file I get a small window that allows me to choose a file to open on my computer or search online for an appropriate program. What operating system are you using?
If not, you can get it free. The first is pattern drafting, and the second is pattern digitizing. Later when I got into blogging, I discovered Ikat Bag. Check out her drafting series here. This is partly because of my background — working in a school where I was friends with the technology teacher, I learned to use Illustrator and Photoshop way before I started blogging because they were great tools and available at school to design show posters for the plays I directed.
The other reason I use Illustrator is that the more I learn about the software and there is a pretty steep learning curve the easier it gets for me, and the more shortcuts I have figured out with regards to pattern drafting.
For comparison, the Toddler Blazer — the first pattern I wrote — took me weeks because I was learning the specifics of using Illustrator for patterns. Last night I created a draft for a shirt and graded it to 8 sizes within a few hours.
I am just trying to work out how to digitize my first pattern.
I was wondering — do you only scan one size and then do all the grading on the computer? If so, would you have a paper copy for each size to refer to for measurements? Thanks so much for sharing all of this.
It ran very buggy on my Mac and froze up a lot as well. I know Illustrator is very pricey you used to be able to download it separately, and now you can only get it with the CS bundle, boo! As for grading, probably the most accurate way is to do all the grading on paper and scan each.
I have used Inkscape a bit for a few things, but yes, it has got a bit buggy with a large file. I will have to see how I get on with it for patterns.
Pattern Drafting And Grading By Michael Rohr, 1961
This is really interesting to me Melissa! But those books look great for going to the next step. Thanks for sharing all your resources! Thank you so much for this post, Melissa! Thanks again for taking the time to share your knowledge. Thanks for posting this. I have been wanting to make some patterns from outfits I made my daughter as a child.
I may have some questions as I read more. I started reading your blog back during when you were in American Crafter and I am really enjoying what you have to offer. I love sundresses and I also have a 3 y.
Just wanted to say thanks for all your hard wrok! Thanks for the info— and good luck on your e book!
Thanks so much for all the info.Take this into consideration when finalising the neck scoop. To correct this take the check measurements "1" and "J", following the instructions of the chart but decide where the seamline is to go first, Diagram example: The school that publishes the book provides it to their students at no charge then again, they charge 1, euros for a grading course.
Lines join to form pieces. Some of the others will need to stop short of this point by varying degrees but whatever the length of the dart its direction will make or break your design.
Super keen in this! Not a Full Member Subscriber? The hem will be curved. This pattern is often used at the back only to tie up with a straight line front with or without pleats.
