This is the new 2006 edition, about which Connie says:

"I am very pleased to have developed this book to show you in a simplified manner how to draft and design your own pants. As a result of my many years of working in the garment industry and teaching fashion design at the college level, there was a need for a book on pants with simple steps and clear illustrations.

This book promises to guide a beginner or experienced clothier in:
  • creating a basic pants patterns for average and mature figures
  • creating various pant styles, simple to complicated
  • designing various pant details such as pockets and waistbands
  • simplifying pant sewing and construction

This book should allow anyone to draft and design their own pants....or a friends."

The information in this book has also been included in the new edition of Patternmaking Made Easy.
