I made a piece of clothing! Striped jersey top.

First I did a design sketch, then my Kayo helped me with adjusting the pattern for cutting the fabric.Using the sewing machine and serger was challenging. Mainly with keeping the stitch straight. It may be hard to see in the pics but the stitching is a bit jagged! lol. Thanks for helping me make this Kayo! I hope to make more in the future.

Your work is absolutely amazing. I have been following your wife's blog for some time now. Are you American? I am and I used to live in Japan for 2 years. We moved back to the US in 2006 but I miss it dearly.

Incredible Rejean!

The shirt looks so hot on her. You did a fantastic job. My first time sewing didn't look nearly as nice as that. Keep at it!

Hi, I started following your wife's blog a few days ago and found your blog via hers. Brilliant sewing. Your portrait of your wife is completely beautiful. I lived in Japan for just under five years and still miss it, expecially in Spring time when cherry blossoms were blooming everywhere. I lived in Yokohama and Tokyo and had the time of my life. Em :)

I've been watching the news unfold of the events in Japan, and thought of you and your wife. I hope you both are safe and well, and am sending love and warm wishes to you both and your families at this very difficult time. xx
