Shape Shape 2 - Hiraiwa NatsunoRegular price £15.99
Sewing for Minimalist Style.
Shake up your wardrobe! Create 19 unique fashion forward garments with simple sewing techniques. Graphic designer turned fashion designer Natsuno Hiraiwa returns with patterns and instructions for 19 innovative women’s garments and accessories in classic minimalist Japanese style. Many of her signature vests, collars, and shrugs are cut from a single flat piece of cloth, then ingeniously draped and fastened around the body. Other pieces are artfully twisted and folded like origami, giving a unique shape to the resulting blouses, tops, and skirts. All her designs create the striking silhouettes that epitomize her fashion collections and result in one-of-a-kind garments suitable for all ages. These pieces are uniquely constructed in a Japanese style but modified for the more Western figure with the pattern grading and sizing adjusted accordingly. Sewists will be fascinated by the novel minimalism of Shape Shape 2
