Handmade Clothes To Enjoy Life : Japanese Sewing Book


Full size pattern sheets with over 30 versatile, multi-size (S, M, L) clothing and accessory patterns included.

Japanese sewing books are drafted for a Japanese frame, however most are purposely designed with oversized ease. We find they fit up to a 16-18 Aus and are usually quite simple shapes that can be adapted to suit easily.

Please note: This book is entirely in Japanese. There are numerous, excellent diagrams to follow along with for sewing each project and we recommend using Google Translate (a free app for iOS or Android) to clarify the Japanese instructions when needed.
