When Tilly from Tilly and the Buttons posted a review of this DIY Couture sewing book last week, I immediately looked at my recently acquired Japanese sewing book: かんたん,かわいい.まっすぐソーイング (Easy, cute. Sewing in a straight line).
The idea behind this book is to show that you can create beautiful and wearable garments without patterns and using only straight stitches on your sewing machine. All 27 pieces from this book are one-size which is another advantage: the book is a great source of inspiration for presents. I am already thinking of making a dress for my mom's birthday ;) She lives many thousands of kilometres away and I only remember that she fits something between a European size 42 and 44. I'll let you know the results!
|Cute dress but even cuter fuchsia tights|
|Easy-to-make & practical coat to wear on cold days|
|Did you notice that it's made from Liberty?|
|Stripes = so Japanese!|
Do you feel inspired by the book?
