In this book, students learn the characteristics of seven different kinds of folds and how to render them, including pipe, zigzag, spiral, half-lock, diaper pattern, drop, and inert folds. Mastery of these principles is the key to realistic portrayal of garments. The straightforward, easy-to-follow text is illustrated by the author’s own pencil sketches and diagrams. 200 black-and-white illustrations. Originally published in 1942 as The Seven Laws of Folds.
