I've perfected my settings in PMB, and now I want to take it to the next level. 

 The most important thing that I want to learn is advanced dart manipulation.  Specifically, I want to be able to rotate bust darts, and  split them to form  multiple pleats.  Will DFP teach me how to do that?  I am attaching a couple of pictures for illustration. 

Are all of these pleats formed by rotating the bust dart, or are some of them added for style, and they don't function as darts?

 Thanks!

 Jill

The first example is simple dart rotation. I'm not sure what is happening in the second example. I like to play with this stuff using half scale patterns. Print several of them so that you have lots of fodder to play with. Try moving the darts to any of the edges, even to the other side and see what happens. When something looks promising, cut it from scrap cloth to see if it drapes as you want it too.

There are lots of online videos that show all kinds of roations.

Digital flat Patter will certainly give you the skills to duplicate the designs your posted. It's really a great text book.

I was always intimidated by the Pattern Editor, but DFP got me over the hump, and now I love using it.  You can just go through all the exercises in the book and learn a great deal.  When I've been away from things for a while, I can always use it for a brush up to get me going again.

Yes, Jill, I agree with Coopie and Thistles. For every idea it presents, it goes over the actions from the beginning very slowly and clearly. That is very helpful for me because, like Thistles, I don't stay with it for a long time. My favourite line is,"After you have opened the new file, Save it"! Nothing in it, mind you, just the title! That is my speed!!

Enjoy your many hours with this book,
Tessa
