The Magic Pattern Book by Amy Barickman just might be the ticket to sewing your own complete wardrobe, with a great variety of items to suit your personality and your body.

Amy, founder of the immensely-popular Indygo Junction company, has designed a nice variety of master patterns for this latest book. Each of the master patterns has many variations to take the look in entirely different directions. It’s a clever, comprehensive selection that includes everything from tanks, skirts and dresses to cardigans, coats and even accessories. (Scroll down here to see all of the looks.)

All of the patterns are on an enclosed CD so you can print the right pieces any time, and sizes range from S – 2XL. The Magic Pattern Book is an affordable option for 36 new patterns (six master patterns, each with six variations). Even if you’re relatively new to sewing, the patterns and extensive instructions will help you successfully sew your new clothes in no time!

The Adelaide is on the left.

We have an exclusive pattern excerpt from The Magic Pattern Book for you to download, print and sew. The Adelaide tank is part of a family of tops perfect for fall layering or a jump on a new spring wardrobe! (In the book just a few changes to the basic master tank pattern give you The Avery with a zipper in the back, The Abigail with pockets and a bit more shaping… And on and on…) Download your Adelaide pattern (instructions follow the pattern pieces) and be sure to comment for a chance to win a copy of The Magic Pattern Book!
