Machiko Kayaki is my favorite Japanese pattern book writer: I like the cute, classic styles, and the patterns fit me with minimal alterations (I wear 38 in Burda’s sizes and 11 in Japanese sizes). I made quite a few things from these pattern books, but my latest project is this blouse made from some left-over shirting material from another project.
Here is a link to the book on yesasia:
