Japanese Sewing Pattern Book for Sale and a V-neck top DIY
Today’s DIY is from this book which you can find it in my
storenvy store :
This is a Thai version of the Japanese sewing pattern book ” Boutique Mook No. 716 “. The projects and format in the book are like the original Japanese ones but are translated into Thai. I’m making this v-neck top with this cotton fabric.
The book comes with the original size patterns. Mine is on the A side.
I use office copy paper to trace it out. You can make a large sheet of copy paper by just sticking the edges together with double sided tape. I made mine a couple of years ago, works really well and is super cost-effective.
This part freaked me out initially. The pattern was split in two !
Then I realized it wasn’t a bad thing. I can now use up all those scrap paper from past projects 🙂
The completed ( patched up ) pattern pieces :
The instructions are like the Japanese ones, full of illustrations. If you want to see more samples of the projects in the book , I’ve added them in saltymom.storenvy.com
The finished V-neck and my blurry face 🙂
Beautiful! It’s time to dust off my sewing machine again! Thank you for sharing your projects. They are so wonderful and inspiring.
What a great explanation! This neck pattern looks gorgeous on you. I will definitely make one for me. But what will be the blouse back neck designs? By the by, Thanks for this interesting article.
