Today’s translation request is from Cynthia and this is the book that she needed some translation help with. The title of the book is Easy, Cute Straight Sewing by Yoshiko Tsukiori. Author of Sewing Recipe for girls and Sewing Recipe. Some of her books have been translated into English versions – such as the Stylish Dress Book and more.
From previews on the book on amazon.co.jp it seems like the book is all about cutting straight line patterns and forming garments out of them. There are 27 items including blouses, dresses, jackets, pants, skirts etc. Looks like there are no patterns included too, since the construction is based on straight lines and dimensions are given.
In order not to infringe the copyright by giving the cutting diagrams with dimensions away, I am only displaying the translation of steps. This should be useful for those of you who own this book. There were two patterns I translated.
This is for the “Gather one-piece”
and this is for the “Patchwork Blouse” pattern
