...A wonderfully succinct introduction to possibly the best defined and created methodology for making garments ever produced. Telestia's exacting standards, clear to see but easily and intuitively adopted, stem from the originator, Anastasia's own lifelong dedication to creating a 'teaching-based' methodology for pattern design and combines the collective knowledge of numerous global industry specialists (including her own mother's couture skills!) Telestia feels like a long overdue wake-up call to the fashion industry, once experienced, never forgotten. It comprises a set of tools, based on a far superior methodology that can redress the slavish perpetuation of ill-fitting, inferior garment production from inadequate blocks, based on an approximation to designs that bear little relation to them - or worse still the individual, whose actual measurements are never fully taken into account within the creation of the block in the first place. Elementary, fundamental and yet revolutionary in its far-reaching benefits.
Telestia, for all its exquisitely intelligent applied thinking to the pattern making process, is non-elitist and remarkably easy to adopt. Using it demonstrated process step by process step, how even the most experienced pattern cutters can benefit from seeing 'professional work-arounds' rendered unnecessary and ultimately inadequate by a methodology that can be tracked back, every single time, to show precisely why and how the best results can be achieved without exception. Telestia is so cleverly thought through that it can teach the complete beginner professional standards from the very first use of the genius-engineered template tools without them feeling daunted or inadequately prepared. In fact, they have only good habits to learn by starting with Telestia - not old ones to unlearn!
