This fourth edition of "Metric Pattern Cutting for Children's Wear
and Babywear" remains the standard text book but has three
First, the sections have been re-organised to reflect changes in
producing and marketing children's clothes. Today's popularity of
easy-fitting styles and knitted fabrics means that basic "'flat'
pattern" "cutting" is used to construct the majority of children's
wear and babywear and this type of cutting is therefore emphasised
in this new edition. Shaped blocks and garments, cut to fit the
body form, are still included, and are placed in chapters covering
some school uniform garments or more expensive fashion or formal
clothes. The book now clearly separates the sections useful to
student beginners (Parts One, Two and Three), and also offers more
advanced or specialist sections for students who wish to pursue a
career in children's wear or for designers working in the different
manufacturing sectors of the trade.
The second change in this fourth edition is the introduction of
colour coding to the sections; this makes it easier to identify
specific processes in the book and enhances the illustrations.
Finally, the size charts have been revised to reflect the
changes in body sizing. The clear division of the boys' and girls'
measurements in the charts has been in response to the way clothes
are marketed and to co-ordinate with European size charts. 'Plus'
charts for heavier children have also been added.
