« New Books! | Main | Japanese Sewing Tips - Tracing the Pattern Pieces - Part Two »



Thanks for the tips! I can't wait to read more!

Just wanted to say that I read a ton of blogs, and you by far do more sewing from Japanese pattern books than any other sewists I follow -- I'll take your tips any day!

I love the tape pens together tip. I'm anxious to read through all these posts. I have a very large collection of Japanese sewing mags but I've yet to make anything. Sad.

P.S. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Do you know you're a no reply blogger?

Hi! I am "someone" who speaks Japanese and sews! I think you did pretty nice job explaining! I did not know these methods Japanese pattern books use are not universal. (Good to know!) Regarding the size, it is always good to know all the measurement in addition to height because every person is not "average" size. Some experienced people make some adjustment based on the size chart by using 2 sizes (e.g. tall but skinny figure may want to use 120 for height and 58 for bust, etc)
