Translation Request

Just wanted to share with you a recent translation request from one of my readers – Kat, that I received a few weeks ago. I was so sure I reviewed this book before but after searching my own archives, it seems that I haven’t?

Anyway, this book is all about Girls clothes using knit fabrics. Those of you who have this book may find it useful so I will post the translations below. There were two requests – pattern C and pattern P. I will post one up today and the other next week.

Picture of dress C. Round collar, short sleeves with pleated skirt and ribbon detail.

The pattern calls for knit fabrics, but Kat was wondering if it was ok to use non-stretch fabrics, i.e. normal cottons, since there is a back closure. I believe so, since the bodice is high and the dress does not seem tight fitting. What do you think? Or if you have made this dress, will it work with non-stretchy fabrics?

    I didn’t know you actually had the book! That’s great!! I just posted about this dress on my blog today (but I modified the sleeves to long sleeves since it’s chilly here) and gave you a few shout-outs for the help!! It was a very easy pattern and I thank you so much for your help! I just posted in January all of the Japanese Pattern Books I recently got, and I look forward to sharing my creations with you. I am indebted to you! Thanks again!!!

    Need help with collar dress ‘h’ in Girly Style Wardrobe. Cut pattern out perfectly. The back seems higher than the front. Am assuming once you add the yoke bias section it will match the front but thought to check first as it seems there is a back AND a front yoke but can’t translate!!!! Help!

    I love the help you provide with these translations. Is there any chance you could help with step 1 of pattern h of this book?
