I got my very own copy of Stylish Dress Book 3 in the mail this week and I've been pouring over the images and Japanese trying to figure it out. I think I understand most of what it's asking of me for the first pattern I would like to try (pictured below). I've added a few other pictures of my next sewing endeavours when the first one turns out. ^_^
I'm still recovering from a sudden cold I caught just yesterday (seriously?! Another nasal attack -__-;;; ), but I wanted to check out the fabrics at The Workroom. Karyn keeps talking about them so much over twitter that I might just have to go tomorrow.
p.s. maybe I'll talk myself into going today? ^3^
