9. Kobe dress/top
A pleat-back dress/top with pretty back detailing including two long pleats and an overlapping key-hole neckline with side seam slits and scoop neck front. The sewing pattern comes in two lengths - mid-calf with cropped front or a dipped back hem.

8. Sapporo coat
What's not to love about this cocoon silhouette and angled seamed coat! Choose lightweight fabric for spring and summer, and cosy wool for cooler weather. The Sapporo Coat is fully-lined and has the latest cropped sleeves, tapered cuff and pockets hidden in the front seams. Sorry cute dog not included!

7. Aomori Twist top
This top has some unusual and fun pattern pieces to work with and will create a flattering drape and bold shaping. This relaxed top also includes self binding and some great
sleeve options.

6. Kyoto Sweatshirt
A ruffle sleeve sweater or tee featuring beautiful drop shoulders, relax fit, short or long sleeve options and hem/cuff bands for sweater versions. Perfect for the weekends or made in sparkly knit, it's great for a night out!

5. Kochi Kimono
This is ideal for any season. This boxy cropped jacket can be made in wool for winter or soft chiffon for summer, and features an optional lining, 3/4 length sleeves, drop shoulder, side seam splits, tie front and front patch pockets. A must-make for any sewers wardrobe!

4. Nagoya trousers/shorts
Up your fashion game with these statement wide-leg trousers. With a tailored fit through the waist and hip, it means they have a crisp silhouette to balance out the flared leg. The sewing pattern also includes a natural waist double-stud waistband, curved front pockets, front fly, back darts and three different lengths including ankle length, cropped or shorts.

3. Otsu Jeans
As an avid fan of jeans, we're delighted to see this pattern! Inspired by the Papercut Patterns' original Peter & The Wolf Pants – these mid-rise skinny pants feature a fly front, hidden front pockets, slimming seam details, back yoke and front half yoke. We love the options for seam stitching with contrasting thread!

2. Mito camisole or dress
Cute strappy dress which stands alone or can be layered up. The top looks fab with jeans and both options can be made as lingerie. The pattern features adjustable straps, low slung back and separate self lined bust cups for easier alterations and adding embellishment.

1. Himeji bag
This minimalist bag is where architecture meets fashion but as the pattern company says, "don't let the clean lines fool you!" The bag is fully-lined, has bound edges and features a zip compartment inside for all those everyday essentials.
