Japanese craft books are loved the world over for their beautiful and practical design, unique aesthetic, and their clear, meticulous and educational instruction. Translated into English for the first time, Girls Style Book contains 24 projects for gorgeous dresses, blouses, outfits and accessories for girls aged 4–10. The easy-to-follow instructions are accompanied by detailed diagrams, gorgeous full-colour photographs and full-sized pattern sheets. Japanese Craft books are hugely popular, with hundreds of blogs and online craft-communities devoted to their unique aesthetic and meticulous detail. Previously only accessible to Japanese-speakers and those with sewing skills advanced enough to attempt to interpret the patterns with no instruction, this translation will appeal to an already-devoted following and also engage with a whole new market.
