This is THE most fantastic and thorough reference book about moulage and draping. It is a new book published November 2008 and I bought this book in December 2008 . I bought of course the Dutch version called Moulage Kunst en Vakmanschap in Modevormgeving.
But it is also translated into English as Draping Art and Craftsmanship in Fashion Design. This book is like having a private teacher on hand in moulage and draping technique. It is chock full of very clear pictures and diagrams which will guide you through each step. It covers the history but also the present and will teach you how to make 3 dimensional patterns by using a dress form.
There are 1000 pictures which help you to achieve to moulage/draping patterns. It not only teaches you how to make a bodice, skirt, dress, jacket , coat and pants etc but also variations on those garments.
Additionally, the book shows you how to make a moulage pattern which mimics some famous designer outfits; on page 160-243 it covers 12 famous designer outfits and what to do to get a similar look. The 12 designers outfits examples are from Charles Frederick Worth, Cristoff von Drecoll, Madeleine Vionnet, Madame Grès, Christian Dior ( 2), André Courèges, Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin, Yohji Yamamoto .
This book is a must have for anyone who wants to know and learn more about moulage. I have several moulage/draping books both in Dutch as well as in English but this is the most comprehensive and I can without question recommend this book to you as a valuable addition to your sewing library.
