Designer Angela Wolf works her magic right before your eyes. In One Pattern, Many Ways with Angela Wolf, this popular sewing instructor shows how to restyle a pattern to create an amazing wardrobe. You will see how quickly and easily a few simple pieces can be versioned to produce fresh new looks you’ll love.
One pattern...4 garments...unlimited possibilities. Angela chose one commercial pattern by Simplicity with four essential pieces – a dress, skirt, pants, and jacket with long and short-sleeve versions – as a starting point. Then her boundless imagination and sense of creativity kick in as she demonstrates the many ways this basic pattern can be manipulated, such as:
- Enhancing the dress
- Altering the neckline
- Adding sleeves
- Adding a collar
- Altering the pants hemline
- Restyling a shorts suit with fabric design
- And more.
Inspiration at every turn! Her daring use of colors, fabrics, detailing, color blocking, embellishments, and other designer tricks show you how one simple pattern can be re-imagined to go far beyond what you might expect.
Open the door to a world of creative options. One Pattern, Many Ways will encourage you to think creatively, see new possibilities, and gain the confidence to express your style in everything you sew!
