Readers are shown how to derive the basic lingerie blocks and how to adapt them for creative design. Pattern cutting for underwear, nightwear, beach and leisurewear is fully illustrated and dealt with in detail.

Sewing techniques are explained and blocks for stretch fabric are provided. Since the dividing line between lingerie and some types of lightweight clothing has become less defined recently, the book also shows how to adapt lingerie blocks to other categories of clothing.
