So I've definitely been hit by the Japanese style!
I've just ordered two Japanese pattern books.
Not only is sewing new to me, but now I'll be sewing in Japanese!
The pattern books I bought from Pomadour24 here were SIMPLE CHIC DRESS PATTERNS and ADULT COUTURE DRESS and SMOCK BLOUSE.
The photos in the books are absolutely beautiful and now I can't wait to get my new books!
