A Year of Sewing with Nani Iro: 18 Patterns to Make & Wear Throughout the Seasons
Craft a timeless and versatile wardrobe for everyday with Nani Iro, the Japanese fabric brand by artist and textile designer Naomi Ito. In this follow-up to The Nani Iro Sewing Studio, Naomi and her talented atelier present a collection of 18 artful garments that can be enjoyed all year round—simply change the fabric selection or design elements like sleeve length to customize pieces for specific seasons. These garments are intended to be layered, mixed, and matched to push the boundaries of your wardrobe and experiment with print and color.
From simple, beginner-friendly tunics that can be made in one day to more challenging dresses with special details, such as pleats and gathers, you’ll find stunning garments inspired by and designed for showcasing beautiful textiles.
Full-size pattern sheets are included to help you draft your beautiful designs. Sizes range from S-XL, though the relaxed style of many of the garments will fit a more inclusive size range. Finished measurements are provided for each pattern to help you select the projects that will work best for you.
Embark on a year-long sewing journey with Nani Iro and create a wardrobe full of styles that can be made and worn beyond a single season.
