  • Materials: Saori book

This is my Favorite Saori clothing design book! Over 50 fabulous designs that are timeless and brilliant! Yes it is writen in Japanese but you can follow the diagrams with you tape measure to under stand the metrics no need for english text . Such a fantastic book! ALL SAORI WEAVERS NEED THIS BOOK! It is chock full of designs ! I SHIP PRIORITY TRACKED usps
These Hand woven cloth sewing patterns that are truly unique and creative. Not all the styles will appeal to everyone but many will appeal, and are very usable garments . Most of my favorite saori designs come from this great book . No photos of the finished garments are in this book so if you are a visual person this may not be the book for you! However this is my favorite because of the great designs the illustrations are plenty for me!
The book is all in Japanese but the the diagrams are clear and the metric measurements make this easy to follow if you have some knowledge of sewing construction. I call this book the BLACK Saori sewing book.
over 50 patterns, even one is worth the price of this new book . but there are many unique designs.jackets, skirts, pants, tops , dresses all very cool and designed for hand weaving and piecing yardage like in tbe Saori tradition. You will need 16" weaving widths and up but never more than 22" width of handwoven cloth , some less than 16". these are amazing clothing patterns.
The split screen black and green cut in the bias dress photo is a variation of one of the designs from this book i made .
i do not speak Japanese and i love and use this book for sewing hand woven garments easily.

"Hello Jill, Many thanks for your super prompt shipment of the Saori book I
ordered through Etsy. Looks great and now to the delightful part of
weaving. Best wishes, S"

Jill,
"I'm so glad I found your shop. I've been weaving for ten years. I changed to fiber arts

after being a painter for 20 years prior to that. I lost my love of weaving.I was seriously was thinking about giving it up. What I was doing wasn't me. I heard about Saori weaving when I
first started, but never looked into it. I purchased my first book from you. I'm glad I did. I've woven more in the last couple of months than I have in years. I am enjoying it again. I'm weaving how and what I want. I am
happier with my weaving than I have ever have been! I also shared my experience with my Weaving Guild. I also recommended your shop.

Thank you again from a VERY satified customer " K

"Thank you!
The books are wonderful and inspiring. I can't wait to get sewing with my own yardage.J"

"Got my Saori pattern book yesterday. Thank you for such quick delivery.I took a class at Estes park Wool Festival a couple of weeks ago called “Weave a Square, make a garment”. The Saori pattern book has perfect ideas for this approach.
Thanks also for all the inspiration you provide on Ravelry!"

nickolena ‘s (jill's) shop. She is a total doll and the See’s caffe au lait lollipop is amazing. Oh, and the book is fantastic!"H

"Hi Jill
The books & goodies arrived - thank you! Never have I opened such a wonderfully scented package; what a beautiful gesture. And the See’s candy was an especially nostalgic treat for me. 30+ years ago one on my college roommates, from Santa Barbara, sent them to my family (in Albany, NY) as a thank you for hosting her during Spring Break. Just as yummy as I remember.Again, many thanks and I look forward to purchasing more items form you in the future!Warmest regards M"

"An inspiring book! Thank you for the nice bookmark and super fast shipping!"A

"This is a very inspiring book, full of cool patterns! Although it is written in Japanese, the diagrams and photos make them easy to follow, all dimensions are in metric, but this is very easy to convert to inches/yards. Thank you Jill, for a very quick shipment and delivery, and more bay laurel to hang from my loom. I will definitely order from saorisantacruz again and again!"Dale

“Buying from Jill is such a special treat! Such love goes into her parcels. Jill loves her craft and is incredibly helpful. Fast shipping and beautiful selection of speciality products. Spectacular shop that keeps me returning again and again.. thank you Jill!!” Leigh

“I love the patterns in this book. They make really efficient use of narrow handwoven fabrics. I do wish that there were English text available, but the diagrams are very usable even though the text is in Japanese. Shipping was quick, and the packaging was charming.”

Though the text is in Japanese, the illustrations are pretty much self explanatory. Looking forward to making a little cropped jacket for the new grandbaby. Thank you, Jill. I'll be back!

Another fabulous Saori book... This one crammed full of patterns for garments from handwoven cloth! I wish it was translated, but perhaps in the future they might decide to do this. If you have a grasp on following diagrams, though, this book with delight you thoroughly! Fabulous seller, as always!
