Nothing is knitted, but something is sewn

I haven't written the blog for about 2 weeks, for nothing is knitted to post. Where is my knitting mood ? I don't know and hope that it will come back later. Therefore, I go to buy some fabrics and make shirts in this summer time. Sometimes it is very difficult to choose the fabric printing pattern, too many to choose and don't know how to choose. OK, use one rule : fall in love with the first sight.






Sincerely speaking, I am not good at sewing and this is the only one shirt pattern that I have. I like this kind of collar that make feel comfortable when wearing. I hardly draft this pattern from an very aged, aged, aged.... Japanese sewing book. I want to buy a new one at Japanese bookstore but cannot find any, it may because seldom people will make dress and shirt, so the bookstore owner won't keep the stock. If I have any chance to go to Japan again, I should search and buy more sewing pattern books instead of the knitting books. We don't find any difficult to buy Japanese knitting books at HK.

After sewing this shirt, it really inspirits me to sew more shirts and will try to sew a trousers. Another new challenge to me.

Oh, it's hard to believe this is your first shirt! Very nice indeed and that fabric is so cute too! Maybe you can try www.amazon.co.jp and yesasia.com for your sewing books...
