Pattern Magic 3
In this new addition to the Pattern Magic series from Japan, Tomoko Nakamichi teaches you how to sculpt with fabric, creating beautiful shapes, waves and accents. Next, she looks at creating dynamic movement in garments, using ruffles, shirring and precise, sharply pleated lines.
All the measurements and scaling information you need to start pattern making is included. As throughout the series, all the patterns are based on a basic block, supplied in the book. Thorough step-by-step instructions and diagrams will ensure that your own patterns translate beautifully to your choice of garment, while photographs of the finished garments will inspire you to create your own designs.
After serving many years as a professor at Bunka Fashion College, Tomoko Nakamichi currently delivers lectures and holds courses on design making, both in Japan and overseas. This book brings together the results of the research on garment patterns she has carried out to help instruct her students.
