Pattern Magic Stretch Fabrics is the third in the series of cult Japanese pattern making 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 jersey and 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.
After serving many years as a professor at Bunka Fashion College, Tomoko Nakamichi currently delivers lectures and holds courses on pattern making, both in her native Japan and internationally. This book brings together the results of the research on garment patterns she has carried out to help instruct her students.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique I ve got the whole series of magic pattern this one is my favorite. It s more wearable, the clothes is on human instead of a doll. The pattern are easier to realise. The slopper is very small ( design for japanese women) but very similar to the american one so you don t have to adapt that much.
