When you want to dress up, this is the complete guide to creating special-occasion clothes—party dresses and eveningwear. With step-by-step instructions, Dawn Cloake explains how to develop basic design blocks for a wide range of garments, and then mix and match the elements to make something that’s truly unique. She includes tips on combining pattern-cutting with modeling techniques and working with stretch fabrics.
Design elements include:
  • Sleeveless, backless, strapless, wrapover, ruched, draped, and asymmetrical bodices
  • Flare, full, close-fit, and fishtail skirts
  • Set-in, close-fitting, and short sleeves
  • Yoked, tapered, and high-waisted trousers
  • Jersey, Empire-line, bias-cut, paneled, backless, and strapless dresses
  • Low, wide, draped, and plunging necklines
