Pattern Magic 3 Reviews
As an experienced pattern-maker/draper it is difficult to find a pattern-making book that is challenging and includes something other than basic sloper instruction and boring styles. I was thrilled to find this book, which is everything that those other pattern-making books are not. . . it has original and creative ideas with clear instructions and good quality pictures. This book is GREAT! It's a small book but each of the styles/patterns are intriguing and the skills shown can be applied to other new designs.
I tend to be very conservative in what I wear, and while I found some of the garments *beyond* hideous, it was the techniques that were important, as once you learn the technique, you can do whatever you please. I was thrilled to see this available in English; I have collected Japanese-language craft books for decades, since I discovered these astonishing creations while living there. The books were so carefully and beautifully done that you could use them to make wonderful things even if you could not read a word. Crafts there are about care, not mass production, and the books are delights to behold. No matter what you are creating, that attention to detail is what makes it something you use and treasure the rest of your life.
This book is great. It really gives an insight into the professional pattern making process.
I can recommend this book for those, who want to understand the engineering side of garments modeling, who want to learn how to calculate and draw new beautiful and complicated geometric forms or drapes and make them wearable. I own the previous three books too and enjoy the way author operates with fabric and provides us with this material and geometry sense.
Creative and interesting book with English instructions. If you are interested in flat pattern or pattern making this book is a wonderful addition to the basics. If you have a basic understanding of pattern making you should be able to make the designs.
Not easy to make. Some basic info are not detailed and so it is not easy for beginners. Also it is important to consider the difference between body types ( for ex: the sizes are not ok for european body type). Still a great book to have and study.
Wonderful like the others in this series. This one has more angular designs than the ones in books 1 and 2.
