I was very excited to be able to find Japanese sewing books while I was browsing in a book shop in Hiroshima. Also very excited about the price. Even though the book is in Japanese, the diagrams are easy to follow. There are lots of lovely patterns in this book - 'one-piece, tunic'- dresses, tops, skirts, pants and jackets. I hope that I will actually make some of them. I particularly like the unlined hooded jacket.
I'm having trouble uploading photos so here are links to some pictures via Flickr
