Practical Pattern Making

“Practical Pattern Making” by Paul N. Hasluck was first published in 1905. Written in simple, concise language and full of helpful diagrams, this timeless volume will be of considerable utility to anyone with an interest in designing and creating foundry patterns. "A foundry pattern is a counterpart of a casting and is used to form the mould into which the molten metal is poured. Patten-making is thus a very important part of foundry work, and the pattern-maker must be a craftsman of experience and of more than ordinary intelligence. The competent pattern maker has a knowledge of practical plane and solid geometry and of mechanical drawing; he is constantly required to lay upon an uneven angular surface, lines which the ordinary draughtsman can get much more easily on smooth surface of paper" Contents include: “Foundry Patterns and Foundry Practice”, “Jointing-up Patterns”, “Finishing Patterns”, “Circular Patterns”, “Making Core-boxes”, “Coring Holes in Castings”, “Patterns and Moulds for Iron Columns”, “Steam-engine Cylinder Patterns and Core-boxes”, “Worm Wheel Pattern”, “Lathe-bed Patterns”, “Headstock and Poppet Patterns”, “Slide-rest Patterns”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.

Practical Pattern Making

Excerpt from Practical Pattern Making: A Thoroughly Practical Work on the Art of Making Patterns, Written by a Pattern-Maker With Thirty Years' Experience I am not a believer in long-distance instruction in patternmaking, or in any other trade, and therefore I don't expect materially to increase the number of competent patternmakers by means of this book. I have been as concise in the statement of facts as is possible, for the reason that these facts are, doubtless, known to many patternmakers, and any unnecessary elaboration would be a waste of time, inconsistent with the ethics of the trade, and perhaps cause the reader to lay the book aside, unread. While this action on the part of those I am hoping to interest would, perhaps, result to their benefit, still, "what is their gain would be my loss," as the chief end of books is profit to the producer. If the reader gets any good from the perusal of a book, he should give it the credit therefor, in the present case especially, else the balance will be on the wrong side of the account. I shall therefore be pleased to hear of any reader who may be able to persuade himself (and his friends) that the reading of this book has not been a waste of time. Don't think that I am looking for "before" and "after" cases, but remember that I am dependent upon you for success in this venture, and that no readers means no dollars.

Pattern Making

An introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting, this practical book shows students how to interpret the human form and look at clothing through the eyes of a designer rather than a consumer. As well as explaining the proportions of human anatomy, the book introduces key tools and then takes the reader from simple pattern-cutting ideas to more advanced creative methods. Finally, the book looks at the work of fashion designers who are masters of pattern cutting, such as Comme des GarCons, John Galliano, Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake. With photographs of final and dissected garments, along with CAD/CAM diagrams to explain how those pieces were cut, the book will gradually build an understanding of pattern cutting, and enable students to experiment and create exciting patterns for their own designs.
