Sew Japanese // Hand-made Little Girl's Clothes

Friday, September 12, 2014

I’m excited to be posting over at Nutta today for her Sew Japanese series. There is a bit of an interview about sewing with Japanese patterns and this book in particular, so be sure to go check out the details.

Japanese Knit Jumper

I’ve sewn this jumper before, but this time I used an old sweater of my husband’s for the fabric. It is an oatmeal colored knit that is somewhere between a sweater knit and a sweatshirt fleece. It’s hard for me to identify completely, but it’s super soft.

These petite pockets get me every time!! Love!

Once again, vintage buttons were in order.

I must admit, I’m sewing and styling for fall even though we’re still experiencing summer temps here. Thankfully it was still cool the morning of these photos!

Every time I dig into my Japanese sewing books, I want to sew more! Thanks for the push to pull these books out again Shino!

  3. oh the cuteness! Adorable jumper which you styled just right - not too over the top, but classic paired with the navy. Love that you upcycled your husband's sweater for this - so great when you can get two lives from a piece of clothing:) Beautiful photos!
