I know; 4 days to Christmas, with one more washcloth to knit and I've spent the morning looking for jJapanese translation help for my latest Japanese sewing book (I have 5). I love the photos and styling of these books. My latest book is Simple Chic by Machiko Kayaki.
From the first page, I love all the garments in this book. Machiko adds fashion hints on how to dress garments up or down. I've always loved pants that sit on my hips and Pattern No 2 has a cute blouse with pants such as these. Not a great view of the pants, but you get the drift.
Then I spent the morning searching and discovered an amazing site http://www.japanesesewingbooks.com where she will translate your pattern for you! Thank you! I also found these pants on Pinterest that, in a different colour, would make great pants for bumming around the cottage.
Back to Christmas knitting!
Merry Christmas all!
