I’ve reviewed a Japanese sewing book that has been translated to English before (Drape Drape), here’s another one! The title of this book is Stylish Dress Book by Yoshiko Tsukiori.
I was asked by my cousin to sew 4 flower girls dresses for her wedding (2 are for my girls ;P). Well, the date was actually set early in the year, and she even passed me the fabric a few months ago, but I just procrastinated since it was something that will happen only at the end of the year right? Well, somehow the end of the year is almost here and I’m down to a 4 week countdown with no dresses to show! I had to quickly dig through my pile of sewing books for some inspiration. And I came across this book which was a gift from a friend. I never had the chance to use it though, but it seems appropriate for this occasion.
The title of this book 発表会のための姉妹の服 and it means Sisters’ clothes for Recital. It’s basically a book of formal gowns for girls.
