    Review quote
    "For experienced sewists who'd like to try some of the popular patterns coming out of Japan, this book is a good introduction. [...] Notably, however, more directions than usual are provided, and the size range is much greater than typically given, going up to size 16. Using Japanese-origin books as crafting manuals, even when well translated, is always a bit of an adventure; this book is a good place to start if so inclined."--"Publishers Weekly"
