guest post: sanae through sanae ishida
I’d like to introduce you to Sanae Ishdia, as well as her amazing (as well as eponymous) blog. Sanae may only have already been blogging for a calendar year, but she has by now made mountains of lovely clothes. Every Monday the lady posts a new, hand made outfit for her child. And every Monday I’m blown away by the beautiful garments: gorgeous fabrics, simple details, and much more often than not wonderful Japanese patterns. I am excited to have her share one of her favorite Japanese designs with you today!

Hello, hello there KCW readers — I am beside myself with excitement to become guest posting these days! I participated in my own first ever KCW Challenge last October, and it ended up being such a fun and also invigorating event that basically got me motivated to sew regularly. Now I’m pinching me personally that I’m joining the other lovely ladies because of this pre-kick-off week for KCW Planting season!
Meg asked me to publish about my favorite routine, and this was a difficult one for me. My spouse and i knew I wanted to be able to feature a Japanese pattern since I own a lot of Japanese sewing guides (truly, it’s a hopeless addiction – I just need to update in which post since We have added a few subsequently). I sew in my daughter a lot and also am also going to try as many distinct patterns, so I do not often sew the same thing more than once. I mulled over this quite a bit.
I made a decision to base the best pattern on my daughter’s preference. Out of all the items I’ve made for her, these tunics are in serious heavy rotation:
It really is pattern 4 because of this Japanese sewing publication by Yuuki Katagai and is the one shown on the cover:
It’s a actually comfortable and flexible design, and I love that she’ll be able to wear these for years. The longish tunic is perfect along with her beloved leggings for the present time, and it will become a similarly cute regular-length shirt in the future because of its roomy size. She also wants to wear them front-to-back sometimes, and yes it looks A-OK that way way too. The rounded storage compartments end up looking like a very good and unexpected design and style element when donned backwards.
And hey, I made 2 more tunics!
I believe those kickin’ moves are the robotic and the beginnings of an moonwalk, respectively. She would have already been right at home in the Nineties.
This pattern all fits in place very quickly, especially if you choose to omit the storage compartments, which I’ve done for 2 out of the four tunics. I am not a huge fan regarding facings, and the one about the front bodice does at times get a little weak, but it’s nothing a little extra stitching to the shoulder seams won’t repair.
The directions are in Japanese yet honestly, I only look at the illustrations and one of the little tips I like about this tunic is the tip to shift the back bodice stone island reviews pieces somewhat so that one side is slightly higher than one other. See circled area right here:
This helps with positioning of the overlapping bodice parts and you can see that this allowed me to fit my stripes completely as well (insert fist pump in the air the following):
I also like that this really is easy to modify this kind of pattern. For the tunic below, I chopped off the sleeves, added elastic and a peter skillet collar and deliberately made the back side the front. Voila, another look.
The suggested fabric for this routine is double-gauze, which is what I used for the yellow peter-pan collar version (the yummy Nani Iro I got from the lovely Miss Matatabi). The mustard polka dot as well as apple fabrics are generally Kokka cotton/linen blends and the navy stripe is a beautifully soft woven organic cotton. I think this tunic would likely look adorable in almost any fabric: wool or corduroy for fall/winter, knits, even a soft fabric would action it up a step.
If you were to ask us which one is the best out of the four…now that is an even tougher query. I think it’s a link between the mustard polka dot as well as navy stripes. Ok, the navy beating might be tugging inside my heart strings a bit more — I’m a lines girl after all.
To determine all the clothes I have sewn for my young daughter, check out my blog or my Pinterest board – I have sewn lots using this particular book and others too. I love us some Japanese patterns and even if I sewn like a sweat look for the next couple of years, I am not sure if I’ll be able to try all the patterns…
Appreciate your having me Meg! I can’t wait for in a few days, and I’ve been busily organizing, prepping, plotting getting K to design without bribing….:-)
