Description:

Stretch fabrics are more popular than ever, used for the likes of Juicy Couture's sweats and in the trendy, ready-to-wear styles found at H&M. But it has long been a staple of designer fashion as well--from Missoni's colorful knits to Donna Karan's basics. Stretch Fashion provides the design student or working designer with the essential information for understanding the specifics of knit fabrics and the patternmaking process for different garments. Fibers, dyes, treatments, care, and fabric sources are discussed, along with the principles of sizing and measuring for women's, men's, petite, plus, and half sizes. Chapters focusing on particular garments begin with a draft of a sloper block. Numerous illustrations and diagrams demonstrate the effects of draping, gathering, shirring, ruffling, and making adjustments as needed to flatter the wearer. These instructions will put students' skills and creativity to work--everything they need to turn an ordinary garment into one of original designer quality.
