Right around this time, just as it starts to feel like Spring, I get an urge to make myself new skirts and dresses. I don’t always follow through, but I always have that thought. This year, while having that thought, I found my way over to yesasia.com to pick myself up the three Stylish Dress Books. You may be wondering why someone who has a problem following patterns written in English thinks they’re going to be able to follow Japanese patterns… I wonder that too.
And then, while I was on my Japanese pattern book kick, I found a used bookstore in San Diego which also sold a lot of used Japanese books and picked up a couple patchwork books… and a Real Simple magazine. Of course. Because why wouldn’t you want an old (2007) copy of Real Simple in a language you don’t understand?! (it was only $1).
I also picked up a couple more of the Penguin Classics to add to my collection (does 4 count as a collection?)
