making pattern magic clothing
As I said I am going to start making stuff for myself,
I have a few simple commercial patterns that I can just whip up.
But then I decided I should draft some stuff too,
and since I have always wanted to use my Pattern Magic books I figure it is the perfect thing.
The books are probably well known Tomoko Nakamichi's Pattern Magic
I will start with something reasonably simple, the bamboo shoot bodice and try and make a dress out of it.
Hopefully this will be how it will end up looking, but only time will tell. ;)
I am going to go through some of my fabric boxes for this one, if it works out okay I may consider a play-suit with s similar design.
