I am currently browsing reviews and trying to figure out which edition by Helen Joseph Armstrong is the best when it comes to ease of information conveyed and illustrations. I would also like to know which edition best universally covers the types of fabrics more commonly used today in relation to drafting patterns for. I have only read the 2nd edition and I do like that one a lot but it seems a tad bit outdated. I pretty much create my patterns by visually analyzing a garment or different pieces of garments to creat one also. Any advice or suggestions would be much appericated.
