It claims to have brought the talents of outstanding pattern drafters, designers and fashion stylists together from around the world. It shows what a pattern consists of how to enlarge miniature patterns to your exact figure measurements and how to mix and match different body styles, sleeves, collars pockets and accessories to create your own fashionable wardrobe.. Quite a claim!
On the first fold out section of the book cover there is a French curve and two armhole guides.
On the second fold out section of the cover there is six ruler like strips that needed to be assembled.
There was also pattern drafting paper included. All in all extensive instructions for producing over 500 different garments. A bargain buy for 50p. Everything is there even the drafting paper so it is a kit that has never been used, I wonder why not...
See you soon.
Wow! You can kit yourself out with a whole new wardrobe with this pattern! XReplyDelete
Wow, very comprehensive indeed!! xxReplyDelete
I'm not sure how much 50p is but I imagine it's a bargain. I went to a seminar in the 80's for something very similar. It seemed like an awesome tool to have but they were selling it at such a high price that I had to pass it up. Seems a bit complicated to use in the beginning but it sure could be awesome once it's figured out. Have fun with it! :-)ReplyDelete
I don't sew, but I enjoy finding vintage things. Thank you for your nice comment on my baby blanket. Have a great day. HeatherReplyDelete
Another great find - I too wonder why it was never used; it looks like it could hold the answers to a lot of fitting problems. xoJoyReplyDelete
Hey it's KTel. They had all the record compilations back in the seventies. I remember their commercials for the patty stacker and some food choppers and other kitchen gizmos. They were into lots of stuff. What a find!ReplyDelete
WOW...this is really interesting. I am always fascinated by vintage patterns of all kinds.ReplyDelete
It is such a clever idea...complicated, but clever :) Perhaps the owner was intimidated about sorting out how to best use it.ReplyDelete
Lovely pattern mama. You will have to design something and try it out...ReplyDelete
Wow, I would be scared to try! It is definitely a neat pattern. I haven't seen one like it either.ReplyDelete
