Original garment cutting systems to generate multiple pieces from a few patterns.
These systems grew from a desire to not only create historically accurate garments but to understand the methods of each era.
These systems are created directly from extant tailors manuals and cutting guides. Each system is unique to the era and uses the same proportions and uses of fabrics as used in the sources.
These patterns are modular by design. Each system relies on a very well fitted bodice.
Thus the reader may focus their decorative skills on the skirts and sleeves which need only minor fitting work and may be able to then use a more familiar bodice pattern and blend the elements that way.
