Feminine Wardrobe

Twenty-One Beautiful Skirts, Dresses and Tops for You to Make

Jinko Matsumoto


Coming soon

This book shows you how to sew your own wardrobe of flattering and comfortable skirts, dresses, and tops. The designs feature wonderful, exaggerated bows and elegant frills to give you a beautifully feminine look.

There are three themed chapters—town, party, and resort—to take you effortlessly from the city to the beach.

Town: A more tailored look with simple lines, using contrasting fabrics to add interest. Party: Giant bows, ribbon straps, and sash ties add embellishment to these pretty party pieces. Resort: Sundresses with relaxed handkerchief hems, crossover tops, ruffles, or a cute sweetheart neckline will keep you cool through the summer.

The twenty-one designs are based on seven simple shapes and a minimum of pattern pieces. They use straightforward sewing techniques, so you can make any of the garments with ease. Comprehensive, easy to follow instructions, with step-by-step diagrams, are included, together with a full-scale paper pattern in four dress sizes, so you can cut out your own pattern pieces.

Bring a touch of beautiful Japanese style to your wardrobe with these easy to make designs.
