The Art of Dress Modelling offers designers and students a wide ranging selection of clothes that are best produced by modelling on to a dress stand. Bridal dresses and their embellishment is covered within this pattern cutting book.
The Art of Dress Modelling book reintroduces techniques that have been lost to the modern pattern cutter. Modelling is a very commercial skill and this book offers designers, lecturers and students a wide selection of clothes that cannot be developed on CAD, but need a three-dimensional modelling approach.
The book is divided into three sections. The first section deals with modelling techniques for fourteen dress, skirt and trousers styles. The second section illustrations three wedding dresses and discusses the fabric and embellishments that went into the creation. Section three describes and illustrates skills that are needed to cut a whole range of garment styles.
