Over the years I have accumulated lots of books on pattern drafting, ever since I took classes on it in college. It always seemed a colossal hassle when you could just buy a pattern, but now I am getting interested in making a sloper as an aid to fitting and because I have some Japanese sewing magazines that require a sloper. I have recently bought the Dorothy Moore book, and that made me interested in another old book I have in the collection.
I don’t remember where I got this book, but it dates to the approximate time period of the Dorothy Moore book. One of the authors learned patternmaking at the French Fashion Academy in New York, and teaches the method in this book.
There are very good instructions on taking the measurements you will need and on fitting the pattern you draft. This book is really worth looking for if you are interested in pattern drafting.
Today is supposed to be a rainy day so I am going to work on the blue T-shirt for A and listen to a book on tape. While this is going on, I am going to make some hamburger rolls for dinner tonight.
