Product description

Review

"It is no secret that I am obsessed with Japanese sewing books. One of my new favorites is I Am Cute Dresses by Sato Watanabe. I have one of Sato's skirt pattern books in Japanese, and I'm a big fan of her design style, so I was thrilled about this new English translated book of her dress designs." – Tricia Waddell, Editor, STITCH magazine

"I LOVE Japanese style- and especially Japanese sewing books. So it's no suprise that I've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of I Am Cute Dresses, an English translation of 25 dress patterns by Sato Watanabe. I grabbed a copy as soon as they were available, and I can honestly say that I want to make every single thing in this book!" - Stefanie Berganini, Managing Editor, STITCH magazine

"I am happy that Japanese clothing designer Sato Watanabe's book I Am Cute Dresses is now available in English. The 25 dresses in this book are indeed cute - with sweet names such as I Am Hello Halter, I Am Jumper for Joy, and I Am Shift into Tunic. They are all styled to be filmy, loose, romantic and drapey dresses with simple construction and a few interesting details - perfect for summer cottons and light weight linens. The dresses are simple to make but not boringly so - practice your skills with the various techniques offered: make peak-a-boo or puff sleeves, stand-up or mandarin collar, shirred pleats on the sleeves or pintucks on the neckline, an asymmetrical tunic or a Kimono cut shift dress. The dresses are designed to be one-size-fits-all - which we know is never true, but with a little measuring you may be able to adjust the patterns to fit your body. I am just a little bit addicted to this book and will be making a dress a bit later today!" - Whipup.net

"Love it! I had already purchased the Japanese version and while the detailed diagrams make using the book do-able, I admit I longed for an English translation." – Ordinary is Boring

About the Author
