Sew edgy, urban clothes with this stylish sewing book and add a touch of originality to your wardrobe. More and more women are opting to make their own clothes, but most of the books on the market emphasize girly, feminine designs. She Wears the Pants is the first Japanese sewing book (in English) to focus on the increasingly popular borrowed-from-the-boys look. Already one of the best-known and reviewed sewing books in Japan, this sporty addition to the sew-it-yourself craze is poised to take the American DIY sewing market by storm. Sometimes women are in the mood for clothes with strong, clean lines and casual sophistication--polish and simplicity without the frills. She Wears the Pants is the book for those times. A graduate of the Bunka Fashion Institute, Yuko Takada provides patterns and instructions for making twenty spare and streamlined wardrobe items, including: Versatile tops that can be either casual or dressy Jackets that are timeless and unique Dresses and skirts that are straight-line or draped Three different pants lengths, from culottes to full-length trousers And much, much more! Patterns can be easily adjusted to suit any body size, and Takada shows readers how to select inexpensive, readily available fabrics and transform them into an elegant new wardrobe. Understated never looked so good!


This wonderful book comes with 20 different designs from casual shirts, pants, and skirts that have an edgy, urban feel. [...] If you've never tackled a Japanese sewing pattern book, I highly recommend the books from Tuttle Publishing. Don't let the nested patterns scare you, they're easy to trace [...] --Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy blog This book does have a range of garments--from mini dresses to tshirts, shirts and jackets, pants and culottes. Yes, I was incredibly tempted to make that draped mini dress but I've got three draped dresses--my wardrobe needs other types of garments! I really like the range and style of these garments. --Sew Busy Lizzy blog Inside She Wears the Pants, you'll find a sophisticated collection of sewing patterns and instructions for twenty different pieces including versatile tops (dress them up or down), timeless jackets, straight-lined dresses, various length pants (from culottes to full-length trousers), and more. blog I fell in love with the book because, despite loving dresses and girly stuff, the truth is that as a Mum my wardrobe is literally navy, black and grey + shorts/pants. The draw of this book is that the designer has taken wearable daily clothes and added some really cool designer touches to them. --Japanese Sewing Books blog She Wears the Pants by Yuko Takada is an adult sewing book with 20 different sewing patterns for the sophisticated dresser and you will not be disappointed. [...] Like the other Japanese sewing books I've read, the garments are actually really easy to sew and you get a very rewarding garment. [...] I really liked this book and Yuko Takada's designs are amazing. --Brooklyn Pattern Company I know that many sewers have been longing for this release and you won't be disappointed! There are so many great designs in the 'easy sew-it-Yourself Fashion with an Edgy Urban Style' book. --Groovy Baby and Mama blog Now this is a no brainer. I have had, for a few years now, the Japanese language version, 'She has a mannish style'. This book remains my number one favourite of all my Japanese pattern books. --Top Notch blog The 20 patterns are fashion forward and likely to please anyone interested in unique, funky clothing...Recommended for collections where other Japanese sewing books circulate well --Library Journal

    Hip, urban, veel street-wear, tijdloos. De Jumper skirt en blouse springen eruit voor me. Verder vind je o.a. verschillende jasjes, broeken, topjes en een jumpsuit terug in het boek. Let wel de werkbeschrijvingen zijn heel beperkt. Nu voor het jurkje heb je handleiding nodig. Een beetje Urban Style van Eva Goris op z'n Japans. Ik bestel graag en vaak bij Bol, dit keer ging het mis en ontving ik een gebruikt exemplaar.

    Mooie en vooral dagelijks draagbare kleding om zelf te maken, zeker de moeite waard om aan te schaffen.
