Description

Another Balloon Skirt from my favorite Japanese sewing book. Unfortunately, I don’t read Japanese so I can’t share the title, but I’ve attached an image of the book cover. The isbn # is 9784471400682 if anyone wants to try to find it online.

Given how simple the skirt is (just 2 rectangular pieces with elastic at the waist and hem!), I really wanted to find a unique fabric pattern. I bought this Jackdaws White from OnlineFabricStore.net on a whim, and I knew that it would be perfect for this project. It’s such a wearable skirt, especially for a mom-on-the-go, but just fancy enough to not look “too comfortable” ;) I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the number of compliments I’ve received on this one.

    Hi Liaifen,

    The book translates to “Easy, cute, straight stitch sewing”.

    I’m about to launch my first ebook, ‘How to Sew Japanese Sewing Patterns". It’s aimed at non-Japanese speakers to help them understand Japanese sewing patterns. Here’s the website:

      Thank you so much, Rin…

      I’ve been doing my best to decipher the instructions, but much of the time I feel like I’m doing a highwire act ;p I’m really in love with these patterns so I’d love to work on them with more confidence.

      I can’t wait to get your ebook!!!!
