Pattern Magic 3

Tomoko Nakamichi


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 patternmaking is included. As throughout the series, all the patterns are based on a basic sloper, 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.

Having served for many years as a professor at Bunka Fashion College, Tomoko Nakamichi currently delivers lectures and holds courses on patternmaking both in her native Japan and internationally. This book brings together the results of the research she has carried out on garment patterns to help instruct her students. She is also the author of Pattern Magic, Pattern Magic 2, and Pattern Magic: Stretch Fabrics.
