I'm taking a patternmaking class next semester and they use the Armstrong Patternmaking book (4th edition). I already own the 3rd edition and would rather not buy another one. Does anyone have both editions and if so do you see all that much difference?

Thanks for any insight.

P.S. I'm posting this question on Stitcher's Guild also, so I apologize in advance if you see this twice.

I don't have this book, but I do live in AZ also and would love to know where you found a pattern making class.

You can use your edition. There are some changes, but not enough to warrant spending the significant $$$ the new issue would cost. Some people in my Patternmaking class used the old edition and got along just fine.

I agree that you can use your edition. The changes mentioned in the preface of the 4th edition are things like "The color red is used to highlight headings," and, "The fashion sketches have been updated." The only real design additions mentioned have to do with jeans. I recommend checking your local library for a copy of the 4th ed, or just borrow a classmate's copy if you want to check out the new stuff for yourself.

Grazie ragazze!

That's what I thought but I just wanted to verify it.


PS to Linscee, I sent you a private message.
