Pattern Magic Stretch Fabrics is the third in the series of cult Japanese pattern cutting books, now translated into English. The new volume looks at working with stretch and jersey fabric. Material that stretches lengthways or sideways can be magical in itself. This book takes the special qualities of stretch fabrics and uses them to create stunning, sculptural designs. In two parts, the book shows how to work with stretch fabrics and how to cut patterns that exploit their properties with truly original results. The book is accompanied by a basic paper pattern block.

'Perfect for those that like unstructured clothing that tends towards the avant-garde side of fashion ... A creative book that will teach you a lot of new techniques and methodologies for manipulating fabric and having fun with shapes'.
Beth Edmondson, The Sewing Directory.
