The how-to-make section starts off with the size chart in both inches and cm. The original Japanese version included Japanese sizes 7,9,11 and 13 which is the same as XS — L in the above chart.

Yoshiko Tsukiori Publisher: I have this book in the Japanese version. I have seen so many wonderful photos of some of these dresses made by members of the Japan Couture Addict web site. And I want to make the T dress for myself someday. I have the japanese version too. Yup, I know what you mean.

Hello, just wanted to let you know that I have 3 of this authors books, all in English. Any ideas? Hi Amy, the pattern for N is on Pattern sheet 4.
When you take the patterns out you will see three pieces Pattern sheet 1, 3 and 5. On the reverse side of sheet 3 is sheet 4! I also wanted to ask if there is a pattern for the dress shown on the bottom right of the back cover of the book? It is constructed like a shirt dress, with collars and a front button placket, except that the button placket is only for the top portion, and ends somewhere around the waistline instead of extending all the way down the front middle of the dress.
