The Invisible Seam by Andy William Frew, illustrated by Jun Matsuoka [in AsianWeek]

Invisible SeamBased on the experiences of the author’s great-grandmother-in-law in Japan, Seam is a touching tale about a young girl named Michi who is apprenticed to the House of Mistress Shinyo, once renowned for creating the most exquisite kimonos. In spite of the jealousy Michi must endure from the other apprentices who have talents in areas other than stitching, her patient, perfect work helps restore the Shinyo House to its former glory.
