Lingerie Design: A Complete Course
By: Pamela Powell (author)Paperback
In this book, Pamela Powell takes a very practical approach, showing how to design and construct lingerie, sleepwear and foundation garments. Step-bystep illustrations demonstrate the basic blocks and show how to manipulate them into different styles. Advice is given about how to work with the speciality fabrics used in the industry including woven, knit, power stretch and bias-cut fabrics. Specially commissioned photographs and diagrams are used to showcase construction techniques specific to lingerie including boning, elastic and lace insertion and how and where to use the myriad of closures available. A final chapter on embellishment shows how to add unique and personal touches to garments and apply that luxurious finish.
Pamela Powell has worked for fashion houses in Australia and in the UK. She has designed swimwear and lingerie collections and more recently has taught on fashion design degree programs at the College of DuPage and Columbia College in the US.
