An amazing textbook! Everything you want and need! Great for Starters, Advanced Pattern Drafters, Teachers and Students! Easy to read and very organized! I recommend this textbook to anyone who is wanting to learn pattern drafting or have a reference to pattern drafting techniques! The textbook I ordered was exactly the same as what they had listed. I am very pleased with them and will order other books, if possible, in the future.
