Love this book
By: Wiwik

I have purchased this book as my first ever Japanese sewing book. I opened it and leaved through the pages from time to time and understood none of the illustrations. My sewing skill was close to none at that time, I had no idea how to sew together an outfit, my skill was only for straight line sewing, pillow case kind of sewing.

So I took a very basic semi-private course in sewing, with free curriculum. My first request was to get the instructor to teach me how to make a blouse. Anyway, that 1.5 hours was well spent to add to my confidence and finally I started making dresses from this very book. The first dress (U-Pattern) was an ambitious project for myself, happy with...

the result. Then second dress was the F-Pattern for a good friend who trusted me with her linen fabric. She was happy with the result, I was over the moon that she was happy. 

Then I made the dress on the cover, E-Pattern, gorgeous for a day dress. My suggestion is to also join the sewing community on Instagram for tips and tricks. They are supportive and passionate and you can find so much inspriations there which will help you love this book even more. 

There are not many Japanese sewing book in English, however if you happen to like a Japanese sewing book with patterns which are not in English, you will be able to follow the thought process of the other books as well because you have this book.

So, if you are a beginner sewist who know the basic sewing technique, who love casual clothing with lots of room in the bodice and simple lines, this book is for you. Takes a while to understand how the pattern works but once you get it, it's a breeze through other books of this kind.
