I did some selfish sewing for my twins in January. I fell for the whimsical looking pictures in this Japanese Sewing book by Yuki Araki during a (very) late night browsing session. I must have purchased it then when my brain was transitioning between a fully conscious state and the sleep state. Imagine my surprise when I received a large Amazon box and after burrowing through the meters of brown paper wadding, I found this beautifully shot book of children’s patterns :-).
Its a good book and I like it. Though I have only made one pattern from it so far: the A line skirt. Before that here are some pictures of the book and my thoughts….
I will be making more from the book. The designs are more appropriate for spring summer weather using light weight wovens. This is the first Japanese Sewing book I have bought. I think I will wait until I have made a few more things before looking at buying another one. To me they do seem like good value for money considering the number of patterns. Do you like Japanese Sewing books? Any particularly great one you would reccommend?
Thanks for stopping by this little corner of the interwebs!
