a little translation help.


so. a customer of mine. used to live in japan. and sent me this lovely link. (you may need adobe acrobat to open it.) that will help all of you with translating the sewing terms in your japanese sewing books. amazing. simply amazing. there are some great explanations. and a laldies' sizing chart, too. please go and look at it. it will save you time. it will also save you banging your head against the table one too many times. really. thanks, sara.

really. if you have a japanese craft book. you will want to click on the link. if you want help with the basic sounds of the japanese alphabets. you will want to click on the link. if you want help. you will want to click on the link. it will help you. i promise.

Yes, I agree the pdf is very helpful. One question, which book are you displaying? The outfits are absolutely adorable.

Thanks for the link!

I'm not sure whether you would have mentioned it before or not, but there's also one here made by Myra of My Little Mochi: http://mylittlemochi.typepad.com/my_little_mochi/2006/03/japanese_patter.html

It's perhaps more for soft toys rather than clothing.

MERCI for the link.
I have plenty of Japanese sewing (& crochet/decoration) books and no doubt this is going to be very useful !
