Is it possible to learn Japanese sewing online?

I believe that the most difficult part of Japanese sewing is cutting and marking.This is the part that I can’t tell you about online.For cutting and marking, I am aiming for “I can cut if it is plain”, “I can cut if there is no pattern matching”, and “I can understand somehow”.

Sewing collar is also a difficult area, but as with cutting and marking, we aim for “somehow understandable.

How to sew

There are many different ways to tailor a kimono.To put it another way, there are as many ways to tailor as there are tailors.I would be happy if you could look at the tailoring methods I describe here from the perspective of “there are people who tailor in this way.

Comments are open.

I have a comment box on each page.I’d love to hear your comments!I’ll try to answer your questions as best I can!

It is also available in English.

Knowing that there are many people overseas who love kimono, I have been distributing in English as well.I use a Facebook group for English distribution.The downloadable materials are also available in English, so please come and take a peek.

Future Ambitions

I would like to create an independent online kimono sewing school page.I would like to include not only kimono sewing, but also men’s sewing, alterations, and children’s sewing.But please don’t expect too much from this. It may be a very long time in the future…
