Have you ever thought of writing a book on drafting kids clothes? I realize it would be a somewhat limited market but, it does seem like there is a renewed interest in sewing. ABC is a book publisher that might be interested in such a book.The short answer is "Yes". Thank you for the interest and it is flattering to know there may be a publisher interested. I actually have two book ideas, and the second is a pattern drafting book.
The task is rather daunting. A technical book requires a lot of attention to detail, not to mention testing and peer review. I have yet to decide on my perspective. Do I create a book similar to Aldrich or more cookie-cutter like Anderson? Do I explain theory and principles, give step-by-step instructions, or both? I don't intend on creating a new method in drafting. Drafting patterns for children is no different a task than for adults. Scale and perspective changes though. I only have a basic outline of patterns/styles to detail, including a chapter on some "quick and dirty" patternmaking skills. My book would include better measurement charts than most.
Right now I am currently developing a set of patterns and measurement charts that are reliable and reflect current industry thinking. I am collecting research. I don't know if I am truly up to the task. The idea is overwhelming.
There are many reasons to write such a book and I think it is needed.
I have no idea when it will be available to publish.
