I received this beautiful Pattern Magic
book from Laurence King
publishing and am dying to try my hand at some of the amazing dresses they have tutorials for. It is a pattern-cutting book with many geometric designs that really involve "sculpting" fabric. The tutorials are quite advanced, but the book gives very specific measurements and lots of step by step pictures. That bow skirt above is gorgeous and is the first item on my list to try. Now to figure out what kind of fabric to make it in.....
It may seam a little quiet on the blog-front, but I have some fun projects
in the works for my store
that have kept me designing
, drafting, and sewing like a mad-woman. Stay tuned!
* the Pattern Magic book was c/o Lawrence King, however all opinions are my own.
