Drape Drape 2 by Hisako Sato
Drape Drape 2 is the follow-up to the cult Japanese draping book Drape Drape. It includes 14 stylish contemporary designs for tops, dresses, skirts, vests and jackets, with easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and diagrams that skilfully guide the reader through the draping process. With two full-scale patterns at the back, this book provides exciting design ideas and highly practical techniques for readers looking to continue exploring the art of draping. Some pattern cutting and dressmaking knowledge is helpful so that you get as much as possible out of the book.
A graduate of Bunka Fashion College, Japan, Hisako Sato worked as Head of Garment Design for Muji until 1993 when she left to develop her own independent label. In 2008, she launched a new brand focusing on dress design, and she is still active as a designer today.
