Description

Square Blouse from my favorite Japanese sewing book, “Easy, cute, Straight Stitch Sewing.”

Unfortunately, it’s not translated into English, and I can’t read Japanese so it takes a little bit longer than normal for me to interpret the instructions. But all the projects are based on very simple geometric shapes, so it’s just a matter of taking the plunge and going for it!

The isbn # is 9784471400682 if anyone wants to try to find it online.

    I absolutely love those Japanese patterns. I wonder if this pattern is supposed to be made out of stretchy fabric, because I m not sure how it is around the neck.

      Looking at the photo in the book, the fabric is a light, transparent cotton – in between gauze and linen. The collar looks like its designed to stand up a little in the back. Hope that helps!

    There used to be a saying, “wrinkles are rich”!

    Classy and cool and, with time…crisp to crumpled! I love linen and I love Japanese style, your top is gorgeous :)

      Thank you so much! I’m really loving all the projects in this book. And I used to shy away from linen because I thought I would have to iron it all the time. But now I see the beauty in the crinkles!
