I should mention that I am currently in negotiations with the copyright holder of Mayer Rohr’s pattern drafting books in an effort to reprint the books. We are uncertain as to the current demand for these texts as they’ve been unavailable for so long.
The current proposal is reprinting the red book Pattern Drafting & Grading: Women’s and Misses Garment Design into one volume and the remaining 3 smaller books Grading Women’s and Misses Garment Design, Pattern Drafting: Children’s Garment Design and Draping: Women’s and Misses Garment Design, into a second combined volume. The proposed retail price for each volume is $39.95.
If you know of these books and similarly agree these are worth exposing to a new generation, you can have a direct effect in this effort if you’d write me and tell others of this potentiality. The more feedback I get, the more likely it is that this can happen. Spread the word.
Often described as the garment industry “blue book”, the most highly rated book in the business is guaranteed to get you off to a solid start or your money back. Many service providers require you read this before they’ll work with you. Learn more »
