New Sewing Adventures: Dressmaking

Garment Sewing Supplies
On my Table
Japanese Sewing Book

Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. So this is what I have been up to. At the beginning of the year I made a list of all my crafty goals for 2014 and one of them was to start  sewing my own clothes. I'm totally obsessed with Japanese sewing patterns and I finally acquired a couple of fabulous books by Yoshiko Tsukiori. All the patterns are amazing so it is a bit hard to chose a favorite. However, as it turns out Nat and I have the same book and decided to sew the same pattern. We are going to show our finished project by February 15 for the February Le Challenge. I'm so thrilled about this new sewing adventure. I hope I'm successful :)

Have a lovely week.
