Tauko Magazine - Issue No. 4
For our 4th issue we are slowing down and take a look at what grows right next to our feet. The issue is dedicated to the fungi world, understanding mycorrhiza and introducing the basics for creating natural dyes with mushrooms. The magazine features 10 sewing patterns by independent designers inspired by the fungi and plant world. Making use of soft linen, wool, poplin and hand dyed fabrics the dresses, trousers and jackets come with many variations for differently skilled sewists.
All the designs are available in the Issue No. 4 with actual size patterns and step by step guidelines. The patterns come in 9 sizes, from bust width 31” / 78cm to 57.5” / 146cm.
