Chemisier_d_jolies_tenues_pour_fillettes_coquettes_1_large

Description

This is the first time I used my Akiko Mano book: “Jolies tenues pour fillettes coquettes”. This book is a treasure… Here is the ballon sleeves blouse, size 110. Just a bit too large for my 2yo…

The length is good but it is still a bit too wide. Because my machine is VERY basic and does not work perfectly with very fine fabric, I made french seams everywhere. This already trimmed a bit of this extra width. But not enough.

No button (because my machine and I do NOT like button hole). I used Candy pink KAM instead.

    Cute little shirt. It is too bad that so many of those great looking Japanese sewing books are only translated into French, and would be a little more widely available. They are great sources of inspiration.

      Yes some of them are truly wonderful!! I know some are in English too, and most of them are only in Japanese… but the drawings are so neat you don’t really need the text, let’s try it!… and thanks!
