Description

Another Square Blouse project from my favorite Japanese sewing book!

Although the pattern is designed for a cotton linen blend, I had this photographic print fabric in my stash. It’s 100% polyester and the print runs in horizontal panels, so I was really at a loss with what to do with it. Then I came across this pattern, which is essentially two rectangles sewn together — perfect for my awkward print!

I cannot read Japanese, but the projects in this book are based on simple geometric shapes and are not form-fitting, so it’s been super fun seeing how they come together. Another member of the Burda community has informed me that the English translation of the book title is “Easy, Cute, Straight Stitch Sewing”. (Thank you, Rin Gomura!) The isbn # is 9784471400682 if anyone wants to try to find it online.
