Flats, or technical drawings, are essential for anyone working in the fashion industry. Used to convey design ideas and garment details to pattern cutters and machinists, it is essential that they are drawn accurately to avoid misunderstanding and costly mistakes in sampling and production. Flats: Technical Drawing for Fashionexplains how to create a technical fashion drawing using a simple and straightforward step-by-step method accompanied by some time-saving tips. This method is explained for those who wish to use Adobe Illustrator as well as for those who prefer to draw by hand. The second part of the book presents over 400 technical drawings of garment types, styles, and construction details, the basic key shapes of which are shown alongside a specially created and photographed muslin. Accompanying each illustration is a list of all the terms by which that garment is known. This unique presentation illustrates the relationship between the three-dimensional garment and the two-dimensional drawing, allowing readers to really understand how to render technical drawings.Drafting, and Drawing, Fairchild, 2008 Centner, Marianne, and Frances Vereker, Adobe Illustrator: A Fashion Designera#39;s Handbook, Blackwell, 2007 Aldrich, Winifred, Metric Pattern Cutting for Childrena#39;s Wear and Babywear, Blackwell Publishing, 4th edition, 2009 Aldrich.
