Make Your Own Japanese Clothes: Patterns And Ideas For Modern Wear

Patterns and Ideas for Modern Wear

by John Marshall

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/07/2017

Classical elegance. Loose-fitting comfort. Versatility. Functional design. These are just some of the reasons why traditional Japanese clothes have captured the imagination of modern fashion designers and stylish dressers around the world.

Making Japanese clothes is surprisingly simple. Patterns consist of virtually all straight lines, and the non-body-conforming shapes require no darts, buttonholes, or zippers.

Here, in this creative sourcebook, is all the information you need to sew authentic Japanese clothes or to design your own Japan-inspired fashions-
oaaa Step-by-step instructions for making 14 select traditional garments, from the luxurious wedding rove and the classic kimono to the informal hanten jacket and practical field pants
oaaaDetailed patterns that can be adjusted to fit any size
oaaaAn introduction to the basic building blocks-sleeve shapes, collars, hems, linings, and padding-so creative sewers can design their own fashions
oaaaOver 40 sketches with many more suggestions for modern variations on the classic garments
oaaaA choice of authentic Japanese techniques or simplified methods that achieve the same look
oaaaHow to use any width fabric, whether narrow Japanese fabric or standard Western widths
oaaaSources of Japanese fabric and sewing accessories
oaaaCare and storage guidelines
oaaaFabric suggestions, ideas for creative wear, historical information, and much more!
