One of the more difficult aspects of a designer’s training is learning how to create patterns that make full use of the characteristics of individual fabrics. With an ever increasing range of fabrics available to the designer, an understanding of the relationship between fabric, form and pattern shape is now probably the most important skill a designer has to acquire. This book discusses the factors that need to be taken into consideration and offers a unique and practical method for solving problems. Its approach to design and flat pattern cutting is based on the appraisal of the fabric (according to a scale of five for each of five fabric characteristics – weight, thickness, sheer, drape and stretch) and body shape. The book is lavishly illustrated and makes use of numerous practical examples.

Since the first edition of Metric Pattern Cutting was published in 1975 to provide a straightforward introduction to flat pattern cutting, it has become the established textbook on the subject. The fourth edition continues to offer an introduction to the basic principles of pattern cutting, with a range of good basic blocks and examples of their application to garments. The original blocks and many of the pattern adaptations have therefore been retained. However, the great expansion of casual wear, cut in jersey or stretch fabrics, has led to the growth of ‘flat cutting’ with no darting to create the shape and this edition devotes a whole section to this type of cutting. The sections on computer-aided design and grading have been updated. The size charts of body measurements have been revised, reflecting the changing shape of women’s bodies.

This fourth edition of Metric Pattern Cutting forChildren’s Wear and Babywear remains the standard textbook but has three majorimprovements. First, the sections have been re-organised to reflect changes inproducing and marketing children’s clothes. Today’spopularity of easy-fitting styles and knitted fabrics means thatbasic ‘flat’ pattern cutting is used toconstruct the majority of children’s wear and babywear andthis type of cutting is therefore emphasised in this new edition.Shaped blocks and garments, cut to fit the body form, are stillincluded, and are placed in chapters covering some school uniformgarments or more expensive fashion or formal clothes. The book nowclearly separates the sections useful to student beginners (PartsOne, Two and Three), and also offers more advanced or specialistsections for students who wish to pursue a career inchildren’s wear or for designers working in the differentmanufacturing sectors of the trade. The second change in this fourth edition is the introduction ofcolour coding to the sections; this makes it easier to identifyspecific processes in the book and enhances the illustrations. Finally, the size charts have been revised to reflect thechanges in body sizing. The clear division of the boys’ andgirls’ measurements in the charts has been in response to theway clothes are marketed and to co-ordinate with European sizecharts. ‘Plus’ charts for heavier children have alsobeen added.

Soft computing refers to a collection of computational techniques which study, model and analyse complex phenomena. As many textile engineering problems are inherently complex in nature, soft computing techniques have often provided optimum solutions to these cases. Although soft computing has several facets, it mainly revolves around three techniques; artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms. The book is divided into five parts, covering the entire process of textile production, from fibre manufacture to garment engineering. These include soft computing techniques in yarn manufacture and modelling, fabric and garment manufacture, textile properties and applications and textile quality evaluation. Covers the entire process of textile production, from fibre manufacture to garment engineering including artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms Examines soft computing techniques in yarn manufacture and modelling, fabric and garment manufacture Specifically reviews soft computing in relation to textile properties and applications featuring garment modelling and sewing machines

Good product designs merge materials, technology and hardware into a unified user experience; one where the technology recedes into the background and people benefit from the capabilities and experiences available. By focusing on functional gain, critical awareness and emotive connection, even the most multifaceted and complex technology can be made to feel straightforward and become an integral part of daily life. Researchers, designers and developers must understand how to progress or appropriate the right technical and human knowledge to inform their innovations. The 1st International Smart Design conference provides a timely forum and brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss issues, identify challenges and future directions, and share their R&D findings and experiences in the areas of design, materials and technology. This proceedings of the 1st Smart Design conference held at Nottingham Trent University in November 2011 includes summaries of the talks given on topics ranging from intelligent textiles design to pharmaceutical packaging to the impact of social and emotional factors on design choices with the aim of informing and inspiring future application and development of smart design.
