Welcome to the last day of The Magic Pattern Blog Tour! Thanks to all the bloggers as well of those of you who have been following the tour.
In case you haven’t been following the tour, let me introduce you to The Magic Pattern Book! The book features 6 magic patterns that can be transformed into 216 different looks. Complete with beautiful full-color photos, step-by-step instructions and a CD of printable patterns, this easy-to-follow guide shows how 6 patterns x 6 looks x 6 fabric suggestions for each look results in a complete wardrobe.
So what is a magic pattern? It is a single master pattern that can be transformed into many different styles—for example, a single basic skirt pattern can create an A-line skirt, a maxi skirt, a pleated hem skirt, a pencil wrap skirt, a flared bias skirt, and a ruffled mini. Below, see all the different styles in the tank top family.
If you read Amy’s Magic Pattern Story then you know that we are sending Magic Pattern samples out on the road. The Magic Fashion Show is touring with the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo, and there will be trunk shows crossing the nation as well. Check with your local store to see if they will be featuring The Magic Pattern Trunk Show!
To prepare for all this travel we created brand new Magic Pattern samples in current fashion-forward fabrics, using fabric lines that will be available for some time, like Amy’s Crossroads Denim line. She recently launched this line of 18 colored denims, which are perfect for garment sewing. The denim is a fun fabric to work with because it easy to sew and drapes really well but is also functional and durable. Below, see new Magic Pattern samples that we created with Crossroads Denim.
