It also includes quarter scale patterns for a basic dress, blouse, jacket, trousers and skirt for a standard size 12 figure. Additional instructions are included on how to scale these patterns up or down.

An excellent resource. If you've ever wanted to know how to change a pattern to make it your own; or how to add a bit of your own unique twist to it this is the book for you. The instructions are clearly presented with easy to follow diagrams and explanations.

While this book starts with the basics of pattern drafting, the original patterns are also adjusted. If you have basic commercial patterns that fit you well, the ideas in this book will help you vary your wardrobe without all the measurements and figuring of starting from scratch.
