Last summer I ordered the book Stylish Dress Book – Wear With Freedom by Yoshiko Tsukiori. The book includes 26 patterns for tops and dresses and is inspiring with the simple yet elegant patterns. The first half of the book is just pictures of (sad?) but pretty japanese girls wearing the clothes. The second half contains instructions including helpful drawings. I found the instructions to be quite easy to follow. The sizes go from 6 to 16 but they seem to run on the small side.
The first time I looked in the book I knew I wanted to make the Y dress (the pattern go from A to Z). I found both the fabrics at Stoff och Stil sometime this fall and finally got around to sewing the dress about a month ago. It was a pretty easy sew and only took a few hours. I really like how it turned out, it’s great layered for fall and winter and will also be cool in the spring and summer.
Has anyone else sewn something from this book? I’d love to see pictures and read about your experience!
