Basic Black

Unlike its neighbor, this shirt is decorative and looks a bit Victorian... or retro... Whatever, it will change the vibe of an outfit. In charcoal with a dobby stripe, there’s a mannish air about it—its appeal lies in not being too sweet.

Extract from

Basic Black by Sato Watanabe

Published by Tuttle Publishing

Basic Black is the English edition of a classic Japanese sewing book which provides Western-sized patterns for 26 basic garments, along with detailed, easy-to-follow diagrams and instructions. All of the styles are easily customized to create your own personal style, and there is truly something for everyone and every occasion in this book—from a smart two-texture combo dress to a relaxed, bohemian tunic—and everything in-between. All the styles are thoroughly modern and practical, ranging from softly feminine or straight-line simple to smartly-tailored or loosely-deconstructed.

Designs in this book are ones that you'll come back to again and again. Author Sato Watanabe has published many books that are favorites among Japanese sewing fans. In this book she shows you how to make truly professional-quality pieces easily and inexpensively at home. She studied clothing and accessory design at Tokyo's famous Bunka Fashion College before beginning a career as a magazine editor, eventually turning her writing skills to books.
