4.0 out of 5 stars Pattern Magic book, 3 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pattern Magic (Paperback)
This is an interesting book for anyone looking to explore pattern cutting. It is quite complex so i recommend it more for the experienced pattern cutter, but is full of ideas for creating more experimental garments, great for anyone looking for a project or challenge!

5.0 out of 5 stars Luv it, 22 May 2014

This review is from: Pattern Magic (Paperback)
I am writing one review on all 3 books as they are my opinion and experience. This is back to the roots of basic common sense in pattern making from ordinary shapes you see around you. The explanations are simple and clear and you can easily follow them. As the sloper or master pattern is made to measure and meant to fit the human body properly, all you have to do is take the patterns to a printer and blow them up to the size recommended and then another increase by just 2% nor more than 3% to fit the western human body better without the pain of having to reform it by hand yourself. Alternative is if you have a shop bought pattern in your size then use that to measure it against the Japanese sloper - make the adjustments and then retrace and then copy again

5.0 out of 5 stars every fashion student needs this book, 6 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pattern Magic (Paperback)
It's a real eye-opener, get it in you first year of uni and you will immediately see your designs become far more creative and crazy than you could ever imagine. Too many times you get held back from making what you want because you feel you don't know how you would even go about making it. This book has amazing ideas and gives really simple instructions that makes pattern cutting a breeze.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pattern Magic (Paperback)
This is an inspirational pattern cutting book, it simply shows the garment and then the method of cutting, and how the final pattern was arrived at. It is full of interesting designs that encourage you to think outside of the box. This is great for a student or someone with interest in technical fashion details and opens up a whole new world of creative cutting.
