The moulage is the foundation of the pattern drafting system taught by the Ecole Guerre-Lavigne in Paris. This is a system of measuring the figure, calculating, and drafting a pattern that will fit the torso like a second skin, incorporating any of the infinite variations of shape the human figure can take.
The book starts out with an introduction and some history of the development of pattern drafting systems. This is followed by a discussion of the proper way to measure the figure, for this system. The CD-ROM, which is made for QuickTime Player, shows a video demonstration of these measurements.
Calculations of the measurements follow. Measurements are in both inches, and metric. The book then proceeds to show, step by step, how to draft the moulage back, then the front. Common adjustments to the muslin is next, followed by instructions on drafting the men's moulage.
From the Moulage the book will cover how to add wearing ease to create the sloper, or block (the basic unit of pattern drafting). A chapter on "special cases" follows, covering unusual situations such as osteoporosis.
Finally A discussion of how to use your sloper to check a commercial pattern will enable you to use this tool as a fitting aid, making it easier to adjust patterns to your figure.

Once you get your slopers, you will need a sleeve. This book continues with the Ecole Guerre-Lavigne system, to draft the three most basic set-in sleeves: Shirt sleeve, fitted sleeve with elbow dart, and two-part tailored sleeve.
Before drafting these sleeves, there are calculations to be done to generate the values for the draft. Inches and metric are both used here. The three sleeves are demonstrated with step-by-step illustrations that will lead you through the entire draft.
Finally a discussion of common adjustments to the sleeve, and other considerations, are covered.

This is a continuation of the French pattern drafting method I learned from my teacher. In this CD, we cover more complex set-in sleeves, drafting raglan sleeves, and drafting the Kimono (cut as one with the bodice, as opposed to a set-in) sleeve. Also covered are the common adjustments needed to make the sleeves fit once they are drafted. There are 215 pages to this book, which, like the others, is in PDF format, so you can take it to Kinko's and have it printed off if you like (or print it on your home printer
