Inspired by Lisa Shahno’s work earlier this week, I remembered that there are some batty geometrically flavoured patterns in the Pattern Magic series by Tomoko Nakamichi. The Wearing a Square pattern is one of the more wearable items in the books as well as one of the simplest. It can be made from a variety of fabrics including stiffer material making it look more like a business jacket, drapey jersey, and atypical metallic blends.
The Pattern Magic books don’t give you step by step instructions for construction of the garments, or anything more than a basic pattern block. The books do walk you through how to alter a basic sloper/block/pattern to turn them into geometric illusions that fit your body. Not recommended for the beginner DIYer. Haven’t made any of the pieces myself, so I defer to a few other bloggers who have (images link to their blog posts):
