TAUKO Magazine is a pioneering independent print publication for home sewists around the world. The vast horizon of crafts, culture and climate is featured in sewing patterns, interviews, columns, articles, tips and recommendations by international contributors.
Issue 6 is a glance into an artist’s work wardrobe and will quickly reveal what’s in the making. The paint splatters, scraps of yarn and sawdust on an artist’s work wear reveal the materials, colours, and shapes of their creative process. What image does an artist’s work wear portray? Issue No. 7 explores the clothing worn in creative studios and ateliers. The garments featured in this issue show a variety of functional and expressive sewing patterns. All patterns come in 9 sizes from bust width 31” / 78cm to 57.5” /146cm.DESIGNERS
