St. Petersburg, FL, United States – October 31, 2018 /MarketersMedia/

Fashion designer, educator and entrepreneur, Jennifer Lynne Fairbanks reaches beginners in the field of fashion design with her newest book release titled Pattern Design: Fundamentals – Construction and Pattern Drafting for Fashion Design.

Pattern Design creates a rounded education for beginner pattern making, from understanding pattern creation to the comprehension of sewing construction of the completed pattern. Fairbanks captures both college students and self-motivated individuals, guiding them on a path to becoming proficient pattern makers and designers.

Pattern making books have historically been designed to be technical in nature, which is ideal for classroom study or book learning, but this leaves the self-driven creative learner at a disadvantage. Pattern Design: Fundamentals was created to ease the understanding of a technical subject into subject matter that is easy for a non-technical mind to comprehend. The commonality of most pattern drafting books is the missing link between the two-dimensional draft and the three-dimensional finished garment. Pattern Design: Fundamentals bridges these two topics.

Fairbanks worked closely with her students to create a book specifically designed for their use. She considered all sides of the spectrum, in order to aid in the learning processes of technical material.

Fashion design hopeful and high school student, Alexandra Archipov states, “The step by step instructions and illustrations make this the perfect resource for anyone with an interest in fashion design and pattern drafting.” She continues, “I tested every pattern in this book, I love how easy it is to follow along and create wearable garments even if you are a complete beginner.”

Pattern Design: Fundamentals is available in multiple formats, to accommodate every reader, from Kindle and eReaders, to perfect bound and spiral bound books on Amazon, including a PDF format available on Porcelynne.com.

Pattern Design: Fundamentals is the first book in this series, but the fifth written by Jennifer Lynne Fairbanks. Fairbanks has authored entrepreneurship books as well as a series of pattern drafting books for lingerie design, titled Bare Essentials. She owns a small sewing supply business called Porcelynne and develops patterns for personal and professional use.
