Japanese sewing books tend to be structured differently than the patterns and books most of us are used to using. If you’ve been wanting to try your hand at a pattern from a Japanese sewing book, check out the Japanese Sewing Book Series over at You and Mie. She’s up to three posts in the series so far, with guests covering the basics of using Japanese pattern books – where to buy them, how to figure the right size, how the books are organized, how the instructions are laid out, tips for tracing the patterns out of the book, and more. Go to her blog to read the Japanese Sewing Book Series.
