About the author:
Julianne Bramson and Susan Lenahan are Co-Owners of Fashion in Harmony, an independent pattern company in the San Francisco Bay Area specializing in designs utilizing the amazing bias cut. Julianne Bramson, who holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Home Economics, creates distinctive designs based on the bias cut. Her unique method of creating bias cut garments puts the majority of the seams on the straight-of-grain, while the garment hangs on the true bias. Julianne has written several articles for Threads Magazine and teaches about bias-cut garment design all over the country. Susan Lenahan, who holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, writes the instruction sheets for Fashion in Harmony patterns. She uses her years of sewing and fitting experience and skills to assist students in getting the best fitting bias-cut garment possible. You may see photos of their work and reach them both through the company website: www.fashioninharmony.com.
Bias Cut Blueprints
a Geometric Method for Clothing Design and Construction
Julianne Bramson, Susan Lenahan
A Novel Approach to Bias-Cut Garment Design and Construction
Timeless, sexy, and romantic. A bias-cut dress can make any woman feel like a goddess. However, when you talk about sewing one, you might hear some negative views about it. "It's tricky to sew." "It uses too much fabric." "The seams sag or ripple." "It needs tons of basting."
What if you could stop trying to control the bias and instead start using its unique properties in your favor? What if that enabled you to make fabulous clothes that fit and flatter?
