I receive quite a few emails from publishers asking me to review books.?I don’;t review very many, honestly I think it’;s because sometimes I just get a little bit overwhelmed with my blogging “;to do”; list and have a hard time committing to another post. Also some of the books are fantastic, ?but not a good fit for my blog or my readers.

When Tuttle emailed me about reviewing 2 Japanese sewing books (already translated into English) I was intrigued. I’;ve always been such a big fan of Japanese sewing patterns and fabrics.?I’;ve even spent my fair share of time trying to translate (using google translate) a few sewing tutorials online.. never with much success.

As you might have seen I’;ve been on a bit of an apparel sewing kick latelyfunny pillow cases, both for myself and for my girls. I was excited to see some fun new patterns to try.

I was immediately?drawn to the Dress with Square Neckline from the Sew Chic Kids book. It looks so simple and effortless…; like the perfect summer sundress. I pulled out some of my gingham shirting fabrics?and decided this would be one of my next projects.

I also love the roll-up shorts- they are shown here for a boy, but in my head I’;d love to make them out of a great bright seersucker for my daughter for summer. The cut on them looks spot on and I like that they are a bit longer with the roll cuff detail- I think it makes them look a little bit dressier.

The Sew Chic book (which has patterns for women) has some absolutely beautifully constructed clothing items. Such amazing lines and proportions. Really fresh and clean. I “;think”; I might attempt to make this Jacket with Back Tie- I’;m still “;dipping my toes”; into sewing for myself but this looks totally “;do able”; –; I can see it layered over a t-shirt and boyfriend crops for a fun casual summer outfit.

Both books come with a pattern packet, full instructions and instructional illustrations. The instructions are easy to follow, and the authors even give a few sewing tips and tricks too. Most of the patterns in the children’;s edition go up to a size 8.

Tuttle has sent me a few extra copies to give away. Just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. You’;ve got until next Wed. the 28th.

You can find both of the books (along with a few more by the same publishing house) on Amazon:?a Rafflecopter giveaway

It’s always the little projects that throw me for a loop.? A dress pattern with twenty separate pieces and minimal directions does not phase me.? But a simple cover for an iPad throws me for a loop – go figure!? My mom recently requested a protective cover for her iPad mini.? I do not have my own, so I made a tracing of the device on a piece of paper for reference.
