I am sure that many readers already know about this sewing magazine, but I cannot contain my excitement and have to share on my blog the latest issue of FEMALE!
There are several sewing magazines in Japan but this is my favorite one as I love the Tokyo Harajuku style of the clothing and the photoshoots. I think it is also quite popular with students majoring in Fashion Design in Japan as there are often contests on fashion / pattern design which are featured in the magazine. The magazine comes out four times a year in time for the upcoming season.
Sometimes the style is too stylish(?) for me but I love this issue because there are so many fashionable wardrobe staple-type pieces in it. I want to make many of these items!
First comes some autumn trends – pencil skirts, flare skirts, jackets, sweat pants, hoodie dress (I LOVE this dress)!
There are some very cute jackets!
I don’t know if I will get around to it, but I would love to try to sew these… there is also a pattern for some room wear and a short night gown!
This is the pattern contest I mentioned. Don’t you think the sweatshirt with the opening in the back is interesting?
I love this magazine (did I mention this already? ^-^
This magazine is available at sew tokyo.
