Japanese Pattern Book


I stopped by the fabric store Tessuti a while back and ended up coming home with a beautiful Japanese pattern book! 

I'm not sure what the title is and the only English are the words "page" and 'how to make" so I think I might have my work cut out for me! 

The book consists of cute pictures of the clothing on a model with a corresponding letter to the design, then a section on how to make with detailed drawings (this will save me) 
At the back is attached a giant piece of paper with all the patterns on it, like a spider web. 
You must find your pattern and try to follow the right lines to trace it off. 

Thankfully the store gave me a cheat sheet. If all goes bad I can call my Japanese friend Naomi for help! 
I'm excited to start! 

It’s like a little adventure in my sewing room! 

I'll keep you updated on my progress!!
