By Virginia West
This is the companion book to A Cut Above by Virginia West, one of the best clothing pattern designers in the weaving world. Weavers try to avoid unnecessary cutting of their valuable cloth and as a result, some have become experts at folding and laying out the cloth on the bias to achieve beautiful designs and fit with the least cutting; Virginia West is the reigning expert. This same process was used by Madeleine Vionnet as she developed her famous designs in a similar geometric approach. The designs lend themselves to different fabric widths, color blocking, combining contrasting fabrics, stripe and nap effects, engineered surface designs, pleating and many other treatments; imagination is the only limit! There are very few pattern pieces and all can be cut and sewn quickly for excellent wearability and high fashion impact.
