Girly Style Wardrobe

These arrived last week, but I am only now getting a chance to post about them
ISBN 4579111362

The title of this is something about wearing textures, and that's the best part of this book. I don't like all the patterns, but the way textures and neutral colors are combined is really lovely. I especially like this dress. I am not sure if it's obvious in the scan, but the bodice has been quilted with a simple running stitch going vertically and horizontally.

I have another book by this woman, which I really loved, I made almost all of Ivy's clothes from it last summer. This one is nice, but it seems like a lot of the same projects. The other book is all summery stuff, and this one does include some cooler weather clothes patterns which will come in handy.

What gorgeous clothes in that book I can see why you were tempted.

I was very interested in reading about your Japanese student. Are you studying the language now or did you live in Japan before? I lived there nearly 20 years ago(!) and I can hardly remember a word.

Simmy--I've never been to Japan, but I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a year and half now. It's quite challenging, but fun.

Those are beautiful! Do they have any boys patterns?
