Annotation

The term 'tailored' has changed as methods of manufacture and the retailing of clothes have evolved. This book demonstrates the range of methods used to produce garments which are described as 'tailored' jackets. It focuses on modern methods of producing clothing. It describes different approaches to 'tailored' cutting.

Publisher Description

Millions of tailored jackets (women's business jackets) are sold every year. Yet in spite of being amongst the most popular garments in fashion stores, there is a depressing "sameness" about them unless customers are prepared to pay for a "designer" jacket. To grade very different shapes requires pattern cutting skills which are being lost as new technology replaces traditional expertise. This book sets out to reverse the decline by setting out the practical techniques and showing how exciting "designer"-style results can be achieved using today's technology.

Back Cover

The term 'tailored' has changed as methods of manufacture and the retailing of clothes have evolved. This book demonstrates the wide range of cutting methods used to produce garments which are described as 'tailored' jackets. Although the main focus is on modern methods of producing clothing, a rich and complex cutting tradition is acknowledged and used. It is hoped that the modern garment designer will be inspired to rediscover methods that retain their validity today.

The different approaches to 'tailored' cutting are described under three headings: bespoke cutting, engineered cutting and style cutting. The rich heritage of the latter came from the tremendous creativity that was unleashed by women's emancipation at the beginning of the twentieth century and the merging of tailored styles with fashionable clothing. The section on style cutting has therefore derived some of the cutting techniques from that period, thus demonstrating how they can be applied to current methods of production.

Long Description

The term tailored has changed as methods of manufacture and the retailing of clothes have evolved. This book demonstrates the wide range of cutting methods used to produce garments which are described as tailored jackets. Although the main focus is on modern methods of producing clothing, a rich and complex cutting tradition is acknowledged and used. It is hoped that the modern garment designer will be inspired to rediscover methods that retain their validity today. The different approaches to tailored cutting are described under three headings: bespoke cutting, engineered cutting and style cutting. The rich heritage of the latter came from the tremendous creativity that was unleashed by womens emancipation at the beginning of the twentieth century and the merging of tailored styles with fashionable clothing. The section on style cutting has therefore derived some of the cutting techniques from that period, thus demonstrating how they can be applied to current methods of production.
