As promised, I will be hosting a Japanese pattern book sew along shortly. The idea is to give a bit more help to those of you that are new to sewing from these books and hopefully create a brilliant resource to come back to in the future.

I am roughly thinking of starting at the beginning of March, with perhaps a weekly post. Any suggestions, requests, jokes or, favourite colours, do let me know.
