|the first book in this series|
I noticed so many people bragged about this book and I do not think I can get passed it. So I bought the entire set. (set of 5) I have been reading this book and I was floored by the accuracy that they are aiming. And they are still refining their research and technique in pattern drafting and dressmaking. Awesome found I think. If you are wondering, I got mind from Kinokuniya, Kuala Lumpur. I am 100% sure that you can order this in any Kinokuniya outlet. This book is published by Bunka Publishing Bureau; 2009. Pretty neat.
You will find the first topic is about all the good stuff; history and origin and then it goes on to materials and tools. Then it will go to measurement, and so on… This book is a MUST BUY if you like their Mrs. StyleBook Pattern Magazine. I can’t wait for my Mrs. Stylebook Mag to arrive in Kuala Lumpur this coming February.
Next, I will be posting about sewing notions and all the gadgets for those of you that are like me; being a gadget geek.
Stay tune. Love you all!
