Practical Pattern Making is the book I wish I had read a few years ago, when I first got interested in pattern making. It takes you from zero to hero in under 250 pages. I really like this book because it's practical, yet fearless. Written by pattern makers and fashion designers Lucia Mors de Castro and Isabel Sanchez Hernandez, the book is organized in three sections: traditional patterns, geometric patterns and traditional geometric patterns... For a designer and maker interested in creating and sewing dresses, this book is fantastic... If you're more adventurous and love shape and fabric manipulation, this book will light up your imagination. If you're not sure, the book includes basic blocks that you can magnify to use in your own creations, so you can use what you've learned to create your own, new garments. The images and descriptions make the book very clear and ready to be put to work.--Ina"Sky Turtle Blog" (01/21/2016) Excellent pattern making book!--Natosha Miller"Test Try Results Blog" (02/16/2016)
