The companion volume to the cult Japanese Pattern Magic and Pattern Magic 2 that fans have been waiting for.


In this new addition to the Pattern Magic series, Tomoko Nakamichi brings the subject alive by showing the finished designs in three dimensions. All the measurements and scaling information you need to start pattern making is included and as throughout the series, all the patterns are based on a basic block* which supplied in the book. Easy–to–follow, step–by–step text with clear diagrams and beautiful photography will teach you how to sculpt with fabric, creating beautiful shapes, waves and accents.

You will also learn to create dynamic movement in garments, using ruffles, shirring and precise, sharply pleated lines and step–by–step instructions and diagrams will ensure that your own patterns translate beautifully to your choice of garment. Photographs of the finished garments will inspire you to create your own designs. Paperback, 7.65 x 0.6 x 10.3". 100 pages.
