Japanese style has long been admired for its grace and artistry. Add to that a sense of fun, and you have the Stylish Dress Book. Complete with stunning full-color photos, this book gives you instructions and pull-out patterns for 26 relaxed and comfortable yet elegant dresses and tops—pretty, timeless pieces that can be worn year after year, by women of all ages and sizes. The detailed diagrams and easy-to-follow instructions take you step-by-step from layout to finished garment. The no-rules looks pictured in this book are perfect for today's carefree fashion sensibility and will inspire you to have fun with fabric and style.


This collection of 26 garments features the work of designer Tsukiori, whose blousy, romantic style is popular in her native Japan. Some of the dresses are stylish in a sweet, retro way, but a few look like children's clothing sized to fit adults, making them a little too precious-looking for most adults to wear. The directions for assembling the garments assume significant knowledge of clothing construction--there is no basic how-to information provided. Patterns for sizes 6 -16 are included. VERDICT Though the garments themselves aren't particularly complex and the directions aren't very detailed; this book is most appropriate for skilled, confident sewists or fashion/design collections. --Library Journal .. .Considering the number of patterns in the book and my fabric stash the possibilities are endless. Even a penny pincher like me can see that the cost of the book with twenty-six patterns included is an absolute bargain! The patterns are all timeless in style, by this, I guess I mean they'd suit a twenty-year-old equally as well as a fifty-year-old and also that the designs won't really go out of fashion. --Ideas and Inspirations blog [...] a total of 26 patterns in sizes 6 to 16. So many of the styles are perfect for layering and leggings, --Sweeter Than Cupcakes Blog blog Stylish Dress Book is the book that really fueled the popularity of Japanese sewing pattern books internationally. Even though the original Japanese version was published back in 2008, Stylish Dress Book remains extremely...well, stylish! --Japanese Sewing Patterns by Sew in Love blog For experienced sewists who'd like to try some of the popular patterns coming out of Japan, this book is a good introduction. [...] Notably, however, more directions than usual are provided, and the size range is much greater than typically given, going up to size 16. Using Japanese-origin books as crafting manuals, even when well translated, is always a bit of an adventure; this book is a good place to start if so inclined. --Publishers Weekly I absolutely adore quite a few of the garments in the book and can see them fitting into my wardrobe effortlessly. --Holly Lefevre, 504 Main blog The no-rules looks pictured in this book are perfect for today's carefree fashion sensibility and will inspire you to have fun with fabric and style. --Sew Mama Sew blog

    This is a very nice book, but the envelop at the back side of the book was open and 2 patterns from the envelop were missing.
    It is not usable like this.

    Zeer goede patronen, draagbaar en niet moeilijk te maken. Summiere beschrijving, maar voor een gemiddelde naaister zeer goed te doen
