Fashion & textiles: design
Whether fashionable or functional-or both-pockets are an important design detail that can enhance the aesthetic of your collection and improve the experience of the wearer. Whether it's for fashion design, construction, patternmaking or costume design, if you're looking to get the full picture on patch pockets, better command of the cargo, or more know-how on welts, this is your go-to resource. The Book of Pockets includes: - inspirational imagery, overlaid with fl at patterns or zoom-ins of the pocket detail - comprehensive information on all things pocket, beginning with their long history and going all the way from workwear to activewear and couture - practical advice through interviews with fashion designers, curators, and technology developers a Pocket Flat Sketch Library appendix for quick reference, and - step-by-step construction tutorials, illustrated with flats throughout, showing you how to create nested pockets with gussets, invisible zipper patch pockets, cascading pockets, and more. With consumers crying out for stylish, functional pockets, The Book of Pockets is the ultimate guide to help you successfully incorporate them into your designs.
