Fabrics and patterns for KCWC April 2012

I picked up the book on the right in Sydney and am really keen to make a few things from it - despite the fact they're more summer clothes than winter, which is what Hazel really needs! The fabrics are two voiles and a stripy knit. I realised after taking the photo that there probably isn't enough of the blue flowers to make the Figgy's tunic, so I'll have to find something else. I suspect it wouldn't have been a good match anyways, the fabric is quite stiff and the tunic looks like it needs a softer fabric.

Btw the Japanese book is called 'Sweet Girl's Clothes' (or something like that) by Araki Yuki, ISBN 978-4-529-04951-1, published last year. I'll try and take some photos of the patterns this week, they're really sweet.


  1. I like the look of the Figgy's pattern, mine has outgrown the sizing though, bugger!

  2. I was going to suggest that you could just size it up, but now that I'm about 3/4 of the way through making it I'd say no, that's not a goer! It's complicated enough at the right size. It's going to be very interesting to see what it looks like on, very interesting... (you can tell I'm a bit unsure despite it's coolness!) I'm sure there would be a market for a larger size in this tunic (and for women too), perhaps you need to pester the designer :)

  3. looking forward to seeing what you make :D
