    This is fantastic! I just purchased two patterns during my visit in Japan and realised it is very difficult for me to parse these patterns (I’m a beginner sewer). Would you like to practice your Japanse with them? I would be very thankful if you would like to try 🙂
    One of them is a pattern for Yukata (men & women), and the other is for a Baby’s Jinbei. I would be very happy to share them with you.
