How to Sew Japanese Sewing Patterns

You too can enjoy sewing beautiful Japanese sewing patterns–even if you don’t speak Japanese!

Step-by-step guide to help you quickly and successfully create the amazing designs Japanese sewing books have to offer.

Hi there, I’m Rin from the sewing blog, Sew in Love.

(My favourite tunic made from a Japanese sewing pattern.)

My Japanese mother taught me how to sew, so it’s no wonder my first exposure to sewing patterns were all from Japan. I became obsessed with the elegance of Japanese sewing patterns, but found it extremely frustrating that I could not share my passion with my English speaking friends.

(Some of the thousands of patterns that are only available in Japanese.)

When I began sewing Japanese patterns, there was a lot of trial and error. I couldn’t read all the Japanese characters, AND I also noticed significant differences in sewing techniques and garment construction compared to Western patterns.

After tackling more sewing projects, I finally became more confident with sewing Japanese patterns. I even started to post photos on my blog of garments I was proud to have completed.

(I made this dress in linen using a pattern from my favourite Japanese sewing book.)

Soon, I was receiving dozens of emails from my English speaking blog readers, who bravely tried a Japanese sewing pattern––only to get stuck. Many had to resort to getting a professional seamstress to finish off their garment. A very expensive result and not very fun at all!

This is why I created my e-book, How to Sew Japanese Sewing Patterns A beginner friendly, tutorial style guide to understanding and sewing Japanese sewing patterns.


Some testimonials from my e-book readers…

You are so much help; I never would have even attempted Japanese sewing patterns (in Japanese) without your book and blog.

Thank you so much for your fabulous book! There are always questions when you take on the challenge of trying to make something that has been put together in another country
AND in another language and so your book has been so very helpful in answering so many questions - I have bought more patterns since reading it because I feel more confident now! Thanks so much again.
      ~Felicity

It is a great reference and has given me confidence to sew Japanese patterns. Even though I have a Japanese daughter in law who can help me with words, she is not here all the
time so your book makes me independent and I learn for myself!
Thank you for taking the time to help others enjoy Japanese pattern books. I want to buy more to try and will at some stage.
