I am so crazy about my Japanese pattern books!
I wanted to show you a few pictures inside one of the books I have been using.
Here is a link I found on Etsy where you will find it for sale. Of course, it is a lot more expensive than buying the book in Japan. But so worth it.
I was unsure about using Japanese patterns because of the language barrier but the illustrations in the directions are so clear you really don’t need to read the written instructions. Measurements are written on the technical drawings . I am a visual learner so I would prefer drawings to written instructions anyway.
I will also be writing another post about tips on cutting and sewing the actual patterns that come with each book .
It’s very similar to using Burdastyle magazine patterns, but the directions are much better, even though I don’t read Japanese!
Stop by in a couple of days to see what I made!
