I normally just borrowed sewing and knitting books from the library without doing anything. However, this is my first time ever to have completed a project within the 4-week borrowing period. Highly recommend this book. The author designed 8 basic patterns. Each basic pattern evolved into 3 different garments. I loved the clothes in the book that I will actually wear. They are so classic (which are sometimes very hard to be found in shops these days). It also tells you a range of fabric that you can use for the same pattern and suggests other possibilities of the design. Since this is an English translation of a Japanese book, I did wonder whether the size has been adjusted from the Asian size to the American one. I was quite confused even there was measurement of the actual clothing. I did spend quite a long of time trying to figure which size would be good for me or whether it would still be too big as I don't have the body of a model. :DIt took me one night to make this top with batik fabric (a gift from Singapore). Loved the vibrant colours. It was so simple that I even had the time to make the top with some test fabric to test the instructions and the size as I found it hard to imagine whether it would fit despite the measurement. I had so much fun making this top and really appreciated the simplicity of Japanese design.
