I think the top is lovely and will also try to make it when it becomes available.

Paula, i have pattern pictures in my album,
http://www.wildginger.com/forums/photos/show-album.asp?albumid=360&...
if maybe a visual will help get you started. I am not a great explainer of things, especially since i am such a newbie in PE. but it's just a basic, knit top with surplice front, that i went in PE and used the slash and pivot tools to spread apart only on one side of the bodice.
as far as construction, i did my gathers first, then joined all my pieces together, top shoulders only, then i did my cover stitching all the way around the front, across the neck and back down the front. at this time, i also hem my sleeves with cover stitching. then i joined my side seams, attached my sleeves, hem the bottom and your done.
i am going off memory, which is not so great, and it's been a good while since i made the top, but i hope this helps get you started.

Thanks! I just found it. It looks very interesting. I think I may order it, just to help me along with using PMB4 as I am very new to CAD.

I received my book yesterday, and I have been ensconced ever since!!!! I even took it to bed. Work and life have been going full force, and I haven't even had a chance to sew up my 3rd pants sloper, but this book is really incredible. REALLY. You ladies have done an excellent job. I can't wait to read it in order, ha ha.

Is there the same "hand-holding" with the book that we have gotten with the software?  I am on the fence with this one, as I don't think that I am quite ready for the book, as I have not ventured much into PE, I think that I may still need to figure my way around style editor in the program before I venture too far into PE.  I am hoping that I will figure this out enough that I will advance to this point, but my question is, for us beginners, should we wait until we figure out what we are doing??

no previous knowledge of PE is required to use the book, we wrote it with the expectation that the user had never used a CAD patternmaking program before. 

we do not cover a lot of design theory, it is mostly technical (how to make given designs, how to do specific operations, etc).  if you want to get a feel for how the the material is presented you can download the sample lessons from fashion design online which is where we teach the classes that the book is based on:

Rowena, your explanation was ok, but my question is... should a new user of pmb wait until they are familiar (or even semi-comfortable) with the software first, before they venture to the book.

Hi,

I am not Rowena but will answer your question. The book has nothing at all to do with the PatternMaster software program. It is not in any way a manual on how to use the PatternMaster software. It is strictly for learning flat pattern on the computer. While the exercises in the book can be done in the Pattern Editor portion of PatternMaster, they will not teach you anything about measurements or fit or any other aspect of PatternMaster. The exercises in the book were written for both the beginning and advanced pattern maker in mind. If you have a desire to understand flat pattern on the computer and learn to make your own patterns in Pattern Editor, then the book is ideal for you and can be started at any time.

I have not used Pattern Editor much.  I have some patterns I've made from clothes I've taken apart.  Would the new book teach me how to recreate those patterns on the computer?

well, obviously it would not teach you exactly how to recreate those patterns--unless they are styles that are in the book--but it will teach you the techniques you need to know to recreate the patterns on your own.

alternately, you can sign up for a private session and i will teach you how to recreate your specific patterns.  i can also do the patternwork for you, if you choose.

Does the book have slopers of various sizes? I was wondering how the person in this thread how made the lovely blouse did that if the sloper was a standard size. Maybe she is lucky enough to be 1 in a million who fit a standard size?

there is a generic sloper file included with which to practice the exercises, but to get a custom pattern to your measurements you use your own sloper from PMB.

Thankyou all for this discussion on the new book. I have been tossing up wether to buy or not.
Have been using PMB for3-4 years now, but drafting my own patterns the pen and paper way for many years.
Up until now, I have been trying to use the Pattern Editor to produce patterns, but found it easier to draft the basics fom boutique and do the fine tuneing, manipulating on paper. The book sound like just what I need to do it all on the computer! No more piles of paper and sticky tape.
I will order it as soon as I can

My main question was whether the surplice seams were extened to the sideseams before the slash and spread. It looks like it was done with a very stretchy fabric and just stretched to reach the sideseams. I drafted a similar style yesterday starting with the curved V neckline extended to the sideseam just below the waist and then rotating the bust dart for the gathers. I haven't printed the pattern yet.

When I made this style, yes, I extended the neck all the way to the opposite side seam, basically making 2 front patterns that went from sideseam to sideseam below the bust area.
