More and more women are opting to make their own clothes, but where can they find a book that caters to more offbeat styles? She Wears the Pants is the first DIY sewing book to focus on the increasingly popular "borrowed-from-the-boys" look. Already one of the best known and reviewed Japanese sewing books in Japan, this sporty addition to the sew-it-yourself community is poised to be a hit.
Sometimes women are in the mood for clothes with strong, clean lines and casual sophistication-polish and simplicity without the frills. She Wears the Pants is the book for those times. A graduate of the Bunka Fashion Institute, Yuko Takada provides patterns and instructions for making twenty spare and streamlined wardrobe items.
Patterns can be easily adjusted to suit most body sizes, and Takada includes a few techniques for transforming inexpensive, readily available fabrics into an elegant new wardrobe. Understated never looked so good!
Yuko Takada is a graduate of the Bunka Fashion Institute. After working for different clothing brands, she founded her own fashion line, TAGE (tage.jp). Her sleek, sporty styles have been exhibited in London and Milan.
