Abstract:

"This is the fabric and textile directory that dressmakers and fashion designers should never be without. It's like having your own personal textiles expert on hand to recommend fabrics that match the effects you want to achieve. You'll discover how different fabrics perform, and you'll learn the many ways to use them in your designs. This directory is organized by function. Do you want a fabric for its structure, fluidity, added volume, definition, or decoration? Do you want a garment that clings to the figure, or one that allows you to construct a whole new silhouette? What is the overall effect you are aiming to achieve—pretty and elegant or lustrous and magnificent? Each fabric described in the directory comes with color photos of samples that illustrates its properties, helping you understand how a particular fabric's qualities make it suitable for specific items of apparel. At the back of the book you will find essential guides to fiber properties, weaves, knits, weights, characteristics, and care advice."--Page [4] of cover.
