Containing 2,729 entries, Kevin L. Seligman’s bibliography concentrates on books, manuals, journals, and catalogs covering a wide range of sartorial approaches over nearly five hundred years. After a historical overview, Seligman approaches his subject chronologically, listing items by century through 1799, then by decade. In this section, he deals with works on flat patterning, draping, grading, and tailoring techniques as well as on such related topics as accessories, armor, civil costumes, clerical costumes, dressmakers’ systems, fur, gloves, leather, military uniforms, and undergarments. Seligman then devotes a section to those American and English journals published for the professional tailor and dressmaker. Here, too, he includes the related areas of fur and undergarments. A section devoted to journal articles features selected articles from costume- and noncostumerelated professional journals and periodicals. The author breaks these articles down into three categories: American, English, and other. Seligman then devotes separate sections to other related areas, providing alphabetical listings of books and professional journals for costume and dance, dolls, folk and national dress, footwear, millinery, and wigmaking and hair. A section devoted to commercial pattern companies, periodicals, and catalogs is followed by an appendix covering pattern companies, publishers, and publications. In addition to full bibliographic notation, Seligman provides a library call number and library location if that information is available. The majority of the listings are annotated. Each listing is coded for identification and cross-referencing. An author index, a title index, a subject index, and a chronological index will guide readers to the material they want. Seligman’s historical review of the development of publications on the sartorial arts, professional journals, and the commercial paper pattern industry puts the bibliographical material into context. An appendix provides a cross-reference guide for research on American and English pattern companies, publishers, and publications. Given the size and scope of the bibliography, there is no other reference work even remotely like it.

One of the more difficult aspects of a designer’s training is learning how to create patterns that make full use of the characteristics of individual fabrics. With an ever increasing range of fabrics available to the designer, an understanding of the relationship between fabric, form and pattern shape is now probably the most important skill a designer has to acquire. This book discusses the factors that need to be taken into consideration and offers a unique and practical method for solving problems. Its approach to design and flat pattern cutting is based on the appraisal of the fabric (according to a scale of five for each of five fabric characteristics – weight, thickness, sheer, drape and stretch) and body shape. The book is lavishly illustrated and makes use of numerous practical examples.

This fourth edition of Metric Pattern Cutting forChildren’s Wear and Babywear remains the standard textbook but has three majorimprovements. First, the sections have been re-organised to reflect changes inproducing and marketing children’s clothes. Today’spopularity of easy-fitting styles and knitted fabrics means thatbasic ‘flat’ pattern cutting is used toconstruct the majority of children’s wear and babywear andthis type of cutting is therefore emphasised in this new edition.Shaped blocks and garments, cut to fit the body form, are stillincluded, and are placed in chapters covering some school uniformgarments or more expensive fashion or formal clothes. The book nowclearly separates the sections useful to student beginners (PartsOne, Two and Three), and also offers more advanced or specialistsections for students who wish to pursue a career inchildren’s wear or for designers working in the differentmanufacturing sectors of the trade. The second change in this fourth edition is the introduction ofcolour coding to the sections; this makes it easier to identifyspecific processes in the book and enhances the illustrations. Finally, the size charts have been revised to reflect thechanges in body sizing. The clear division of the boys’ andgirls’ measurements in the charts has been in response to theway clothes are marketed and to co-ordinate with European sizecharts. ‘Plus’ charts for heavier children have alsobeen added.
