High fashion unquestionably goes hand-in-hand with sartorial and stylistic perfection. A driving force behind the entire fashion and garment industry, it represents the search for new solutions concerning fabrics, style, or patterns. In this context, the patternmaker is an essential figure, bringing the stylist's ideas into reality. In our richly illustrated new volume of the Fashion Patternmaking series, the prolific author Antonio Donnanno, an offspring of a tailor family, patternmaking teacher, and director of a fashion school network, describes in detail the methods and techniques used in high-fashion patternmaking in an understandable and step-by-step way.

This second volume of Fashion Patternmaking Techniques examines the various procedures for transforming bodices, through dart manipulation as well as studying techniques for creating volumes, draping, and fitted patterns. The book includes techniques for creating patterns for knit fabrics; basic dress blocks and how to adapt these to different fabric patterns and types of garment (for example, maternity dresses); sleeves; basic blocks for men’s vests and jackets; size grading for tops and dresses and the fundamentals of pattern layout. This manual prepares the reader to apply these concepts—along with their own intuition and creativity—to constructing patterns. Antonio Donnanno began his career in his family’s tailoring shop. After majoring in history and philosophy, he focused on teaching costume history and patternmaking techniques. In 1982, he founded the prestigious Euromode School Italia in Bergamo, which soon expanded abroad. He has written dozens of books on fashion and has his own consulting firm, which focuses on patternmaking and business.

Antonio Donnanno returns to children’s clothing patterns, expanding on previous work and including numerous new garments to dress kids for any occasion. Once again, this text is the result of attentive studies and ongoing updates to measurements and the changing needs that this industry is known for. The author wanted to create a method similar to that for adults, simple yet precise and clear. All categories of garments which are currently made and sold were the object of close study: from gowns to rompers, skirts to trousers and jumpsuits, casual clothes to carnival costumes. In the words of the author: “Each age range comes with models which combine comfort, beauty and style. I hope this text will help simplify the work of those in this industry or of those who just wish to make garments for their family members.”
