The magic pattern book: sew 6 patterns into 36 different styles!
Workman Publishing Co., Inc.,
Home sewing is booming again. Inspired by sites like Etsy, Craftsy, Pinterest, and CreativeBug, by the continuing popularity of "Project Runway" and other fashion shows, and by the ever-growing DIY movement, there are more than 35 million sewists in America. Now, for this new generation that wants to make their own clothes, express their fashion sense, look great, be creative and save money, to boot comes Amy Barickman s "The Magic Pattern Book," an illustrated guide to creating a one-of-a-kind wardrobe from six magic patterns. What makes a sewing pattern magic? It s a simple equation: One magic pattern can be transformed into six different looks for example, The Skirt (pattern B) yields an A-line skirt, a maxi skirt, a pleated hem skirt, a pencil wrap skirt, a flared bias skirt, and a ruffled mini. Then comes even more magic there are six magic patterns in "The Magic Pattern Book," resulting in thirty-six different looks. Following each look are suggestions for specific fabrics, many of them repurposed items, for a total of 216 garments and accessories. The skill level is basic, and patterns are bundled onto a CD in an envelope in the back of the book, and also found online (to be downloaded and printed out on 81/2" x 11" paper). What makes a book magic? Another simple equation: great value, a great promise, a great package, and a great author."
