The book went on preorder on Tuesday. Price is 2000¥ before tax, with the release date for June. Sadly, it’s only in Japanese. While this isn’t a big problem for me even though my Japanese is like lvl 10, it would make it easier for the majority of international customers, if it was also in English.

This morning I was checking the usual biweekly email from GSC with newest preorders, when a poll question instantly caught my eye.

Would you be interested in an English version of the "My First Doll: Clothing Patterns ~Creating in Nendoroid Doll Size~" book?

Heck yes!

I immediately voted and shared it with my friends but I figured the best thing to do is to write here about it so more people could see it.

Poll is here: event.goodsmile...

Please vote if you would want the English version~! ( ˘ω˘ )

I’m including a poll here but with a slightly different question~~

Exactly. I also checked out some of the drafts for future ND clothes, and, girls clothing, with which I mean "skirts/dresses" and one-layer shirts look pretty ok, but long trousers, or 3 piece suits just look bulky. Most notably: ITEM #806529 and ITEM #806564 with the latter comparing it to the female, it's easy to see how it looks allot bulkier. View spoilerHide spoilerMy mini search also made me aware of the fact that the blank nendoroid doll heads, and the ND-extra hands aren't on MFC, which is kinda confusing. Wonder why they haven't been added.
I also have the hope that it'll be set up in such a way that I can sow the clothes by hand, since I'm just new to all of this in general.
I really hope I can make some cute clothes.
I just hope GSC is gonna offer more separate feet/shoes for the ND bodies in the near future. High heels, flats, trainers, business shoes, etc.

purinbun (27 dager siden) #57639220I have yet to venture into sewing for them. ;w; It feels a bit more comfortable with having the doll on hand before I start sewing, even though GSC gave measurements. I poed the doll bodies for May but, if GSC continues to delay, I’ll just start sewing before they arrive and hope everything fits.
I definitely wanted to take your route before seeing that they made the book, though. That Obitsu book looks great.
Was it trial and error or you easily adapted the patterns? I guess it depends on what piece of clothing you wanted to make.
If you still think about ordering the book in Japanese, I rec HLJ, they recently put it up on po. You can easily cancel if GSC announces Eng ver in between. :3


Ahaha, I was very much the same-- I had pre-ordered two girl prototype NDs, but also wanted to start sewing as soon as possible. In the end, feeling a little anxious without the ND physically there while I was making the clothes, I caved and ended up buying Emily second-hand...

It was really satisfying when things fit together nicely!! There was some trial-and-error, but it mostly came in the form of adapting the patterns for little character details, rather than for the measurements themselves. (That said, I think both dresses I made were adapted Tiny Betsy patterns, so other dolls' measurements / ratios might not match up as nicely.)

I actually ended up PO-ing the book on amiami, and certainly look forward to sewing clothes fitted specifically for NDs! Even if an ENG edition is announced in the interim / after the fact, I'll probably just stick with working construction out by sight, honestly.

Iskana (1 måned siden) #57271817Hnnnng, I already bought the Japanese version... *sigh* Welp, it's gonna be fully illustrated anyway, so I'm fine with it.
I personally think the book itself was a good idea either way. It's cheaper, and easier for people who wanna make doll clothing for their ND's, instead of having to pay 2000yen for one set of clothing.
For people who know how, or just wanna make their own stuff, it's a pretty good option, especially since I personally see a benefit in being able to choose your own fabrics, and materials.
View spoilerHide spoilerAnd just having a book like this for beginner is easier than mistakingly buying patterns online for a level of skill some may not yet possess, or which don't even fit the doll. (I've noticed some patterns come with notes about hot to fit the clothing/patterns to the size of doll you wanna make them for, which can be kinda hard.)
Same, I got too excited when I saw it on po. :’3 It does look pretty straightforward thanks to step by step photos so not much to fail at maybe.
I agree with everything you said; some outfits are nice to get if you don’t know how to make them or you just want them bc they’re perfect but most of the outfits online aren’t quite fitting for ND (yet). I’m not fond of how bulky some clothes can look (that aren’t meant to be bulky), while sweatshirts and such baggy clothing do look cute.
I’m already stocking fabrics I want to use and it’s great it’s such a small scale, since you can get smaller amounts of materials — which is also cheaper (if you don’t splurge haha%.
Very glad it’s beginner friendly! I’m definitely looking forward to see how to fit clothing properly to the size, or make something elaborate pieces more easily. I studied fashion design in college and had pattern making but I’m always more comfortable with having guidelines before I get more comfortable in doing stuff myself. (;ω;)

Good luck with sewing once you get the book and hope you have fun~ ( ˘ω˘ )

evariche (1 måned siden) #57249644I've been adapting other doll brands' patterns from various doll mooks recently myself, but when I happened to stumble across the ND pattern book on amiami, I was certainly pleasantly surprised!! I might pick it up despite my ignorance of Japanese, though - in any case - I'd definitely be interested in an ENG edition - I don't doubt I'd be resourceful for a lot of people--!I have yet to venture into sewing for them. ;w; It feels a bit more comfortable with having the doll on hand before I start sewing, even though GSC gave measurements.

I saw your article when it posted but I got so busy this weekend I forgot to comment >.<
but Yay thank you for making blog post! also it's really cool ya speak some Japanese as well!
The number of votes on the poll went to 270 so hopefully GSC gets the hint for an english ver lolol. Although I'm a visual learner anyway, it'd still be super helpful to understand the text that goes along with it, especially with types of fabrics/names. Either way Im ready to fashion up my nendo dolls' wardrobes xD

I didn't quite order it yet because June has several nendos/a scale, so I was glad to see they are thinking of making an English one and likely shouldn't. It'll save a lot of money in premade clothes (I only recently found out they're pricy :/), as the main thing that would have stopped me from making one is not knowing how to scale them. It'll also save a lot in time, as well.
The book being in Japanese (so long as it's available after on Amazon Japan or something) wasn't that much of an issue, since I don't follow instructions anyway (I find pattern pieces to primarily be self explanatory), but it would be nice if they did release it in English anyway, in case. As long as it isn't a US event exclusive. :/.

I preorderd it already but knowing that they are thinking about releasing it in english is pretty cool :0

pretty excited for it either way. been having one heck of a time getting patterns to work for me. not used to having to alter proportions/scale on a pattern to make it fit. xDD each time for the last month or so, something hasn't fit right~

Thank you so much for sharing this. I'm planning on getting it no matter what language it releases in since I just started learning how to sew nendoroid doll/cu-poche clothes, but I would much prefer it in english since I'm an extreme beginner in sewing. I was about to pre-order it, but now I'm going to wait a bit and see if they decide to translate it.

I voted for it. My sewing skills are completely at an amateur level and I’d definitely buy it.
