New Releases

New Releases for Japanese Sewing Books ad Magazines October 2016

October 29, 2016

The annual slowdown for new Japanese sewing books releases has begun, as we see more crochet+knitting books hit the shelves instead of sewing books. Nevertheless, there will always be new books to buy. Many of them are released for the Autumn/Winter seasons, just in time for those of you who are lucky enough to enjoy 4 seasons. As usual, I will be including the titles, and ISBN/ASIN numbers to make it easy for you to search or request them from your local Japanese bookstore. You can also choose to buy them by clicking the links n my blog post. These are affiliate links to CDJapan, my usual source for Japanese sewing books! Happy shopping!

I just ordered this from cdjapan. I see a pattern here. Everytime I write a new releases post I always end up checking out (literally!) some sewing books. I will post a review of this book if it’s good!

Looks like lots of winter sewing in this one, I like the duffel coat that the boy is wearing!



Easy Handmade Kids Clothes
Title : ハンドメイドのかんたん子ども服2016-2017秋冬

ISBN :978-4834742923



 The second part of the title mentions low back? But it’s not all low back dresses. But in the preview of the contents it doesn’t look like all low back pieces, so I’m not sure what it means in the title. There are tops, bottoms, dresses and outerwear garments in this book.

Ladies wear straight line sewing without patterns.

This book looks interesting, not many books released for Mens’ sewing as Ladies, but as it has not been released yet there are no previews of the book yet.


Some of the periodicals that will be published these few months.

The last magazine reminds us that Christmas is coming soon! Busy times ahead for all of us. I will be working on a couple of free pattern releases in the coming weeks because I need to get the up on the blog before the mad sewing begins. I have holiday sewing, Chinese new year sewing, and back to school sewing all scheduled for the next two months. I may not be posting as many book reviews for now but do follow me on Instagram or Facebook where I post my 1 minute book flip-through videos.You will get to see my new book purchases there much faster since it takes a longer time to write up a proper review.

    I love these monthly updates! Last week I purchased “Easy Handmade Kids Clothes” from Kinokuniya bookstore in Seattle, Washington, USA. I didn’t know that is what it is called, thanks for the translation 🙂

    背が低めな人のための大人服 – I think the book is for shorter people as the dress will gives the impression that wearer is taller due to the cutting. : )
    love your new books review and always enjoy your clean and sweet sewing for your kids. Keep up the posting. : )
