In the launching issue of the TAUKO magazine, you will find 12 designs by international designers with step by step sewing guidelines and actual size paper patterns. The detailed guidelines inspire makers of all levels to start their new sewing project. All patterns come in 9 sizes from bust width 38” / 78cm to 57.5” / 146cm. The issue explores the theme “The Age of the Makers” in articles, essays, columns, recommendations and interviews which highlight makers as artists, revolutionaries and designers.
Designers include: Ivona Fodora, Minna Konttijärvi, Mila Moisio, Johanna Morris, Kaisa Rissanen, Casey Sibley, Evelyn Sitter, Marie Stamm, Miriam Strotkotter,
TAUKO is a 128-page collectable that measures in at 275mm high x 215mm wide. There are four folded paper pattern sheets included with the magazine. The patterns from each issue are overprinted on the four sheets - trace off your sizes before use. A 1cm seam allowance is included in patterns unless otherwise specified. Finished garment measurements are included for each pattern. Please see images for examples of the pattern sheets and instructions format.
Tauko is printed in Estonia with a glue and stitch binding to secure durability and easy reading.
