Have you ever been intimidated by a DIY book? Well, I hate to admit that at first view of Hisako Sato's Drape Drape I was. A few years ago, Andrea gifted me a copy. Of course, I was grateful and thought it was a great gift, but still intimidated.
My questions: Can I adjust the depth of the drape? The style is different. Will it look good on me? Is the sizing on the pattern similar the big four?
Over the summer, I pulled the book from the shelf to take another look at it. Hoping that my fears had dissipated. To see if there was something in this jewel that would appeal to me and that I could conquer.
At my year later look, the same garments appealed to me, but without the fear of trying them. This book is beautifully photographed. The pages are clean and clutter free. It comes with a packet of pattern sheets. The sewing instructions appear to be clear. Most of the construction techniques are including at the beginning of the book with sewing instructions and fabric requirements indicated on the first page of each project.
Here are a few garments that I may try.
