As long as you don't have to deal with pleated pants and shoulder pads. :)
I find textiles fascinating? I must be the opposite of you. :-)
oh I want to take both! =D learn lots and tell us all!
I would love to have both those books. I love textiles, but then again I'm a spinner/knitter/crocheter.
AHH! I have that Patternmaking Book from college. It definitely cost me over $100 but is very useful =)
I'm reserving judgment on the textiles book, in my head it sounds like it would be full of all the stuff I'd ever want to know, but in reality it's prolly more like a statistics book, full of useless facts that mean nothing to a maker of things. the pattern book on the other hand....I know how to cut out pattern pieces, and assemble them but have no idea what the instructions that come with them mean. I also am capable of draping garments on my dress form (dresses/shirts) so I'm sure this would give me more applicable knowledge.
I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
