beautiful picture^...

The dress is two parts
You have a full dress underneath
and then there is a separate fabric placed on top of it, attached from the waist going to the one shoulder, down the back and coming back to the front from the sides... and then tied

A lot of her work is so fine, the pleats... She must be using a pleating machine. You can also do it by hand--the technique can be called "ruching". I learned this in an intro to draping course.

Did you take a year one basic course? I wonder what they taught you... Right now actually I felt my course was so basic, but I have yet to find a draped design I can't figure out... I might look at the Japanese designers...

Id never come across a book about draping, but id love to! I learned at school, but found it was more useful to experiment on my own once i bought my own dressform. However, trying different styles suggested on a book would be really nice, getting new inspiration from there,etc

Looking for books in patternmaking, portfolio creation and fashion drawing
I am looking for something that would be accessible for beginners but wouldn't mind if it contains advanced topics as well. Simply put, I am not merely interested in learning only the basics. I am looking for something that I can build on.

Any books you would recommend?

Many thanks!

Can anyone recommend book's on:
1. Everything you would learn in a designing program (or close enough!) I'm doing clothes on a street fashion level but, I would like to expand on some cut & sew and I'm really interested in learning more. I know how to sew and make a few amateur patterns but, that's about it.
2. How to run and manage your own clothing company. An outline of who does what. If my company expands pass my living room then, I would have to hire more people.

I'm willing to learn and wish I had learnt it when I was in school. Unfortunately where I live, they don't offer any college level programs in English so, I would have to learn it through books.
Thank you so much in advance and bare with my "Sewing for dummies!"
I was actually looking for something else and ran across this post... Look into a book called Fashion For Profit, by Frances Harder Fashion schools use her book as a reference...
Hope this helps, Good Luck

The pattern drafting book actually used in industry is "Patternmaking for Designers of Womenswear and Mens Casual Wear" by Jack Handford. Ditto for his very hard to get pattern grading text.

For construction you should get "Guide to Fashion Sewing" by Connie Amaden-Crawford.
Ditto for her draping text.

Most importantly avoid home-sewing books. They will just teach you bad habits you will have to unlearn later. Go right for industry books.

I'm not in fashion school (yet?), but I do have a suggestion for those looking for fashion-related books. Check museum shops!
